Alice In Chains’ William DuVall And Sunn O)))’s Greg Anderson Team Up For New Benefit Track “We Who Walk In Light”

The Lord, the project featuring Sunn O)))’s Greg Anderson, have teamed up with Alice In Chains’ William DuVall for a new benefit song titled “We Who Walk In Light.” The track can be purchased on Bandcamp with proceeds set to go towards Jail Guitar Doors. DuVall commented:

“‘We Who Walk In Light‘ just came to me. I simply reacted to the music Greg sent, tracked and arranged all my parts at home alone. I wrote it as I was singing it, all at once, no second guessing. Thankfully, my wife was out of town at the time as she might have been a bit unsettled by some of the sounds emanating from the basement. It’s basically a heavy metal Buddhist monk choir with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan flying in for a cameo. I’m sure it’s channeling some of the tension of current times. I was happy to be asked by The Lord to collaborate and I’m glad to donate the proceeds to my friend Brother Wayne Kramer’s organization, Jail Guitar Doors.”

Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) Premieres “Brighten” Music Video

Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) has premiered a new video for the title track of his new album “Brighten.” As previously reported, that effort will be released on October 29 and it will feature members of Guns N’Roses, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Saudade, and more.

Cantrell said the following about the song:

“Pretty early on, I knew “Brighten” was the cornerstone track of the album, and it seemed to fit the body of work as a title. There’s plenty of darkness and edge, but there’s also some light, space, and good vibes.”

The following was also said about the video in an official press release:

“The video, directed by Gilbert Trejo, son of renowned actor Danny Trejo, is loosely based on the fabled “Lotus Eaters” from Homer’s Odyssey. It depicts a story of a man having a psychedelic experience as a result of eating flowers; a “Lotus Eater” is a person who spends their time indulging in instant gratification, pleasure and luxury rather than dealing with anything practical. The story is interspersed with an impassioned live performance from Jerry, Tyler Bates on bass, Greg Puciato on backing vocals and guitar, drummer Abe Laboriel Jr, and pianist Vincent Jones.”

Alice In Chains Team Up With Puck Hcky For New Merch Collection

Alice In Chains have teamed up with hockey-themed brand Puck Hcky for a new merch collection. You can see what they have to offer HERE. Matt Marini, CEO of Puck Hcky, said the following about the collaboration:

“WOW! Had I been told back in 1991, when I saw them at an intimate, one-off-show at the Silver Dollar Saloon in Lansing, Michigan, that someday I would be involved in an Alice In Chains collaboration, I never would’ve believed it! Total dream come true for us. This is the band that truly brought the Seattle sound to all of us lucky fans and they continue to do so now! Every release Alice In Chains has put out has been special, from the heavier material of ‘Facelift’ and ‘Dirt’ to the acoustic jams of ‘Jar Of Flies’ to the new records, we love it all. It is an honor for Puck Hcky to be releasing this collection that we designed together, we could not be more thrilled! Alice In Chains is on the daily playlist at Puck Hcky, and always will be.”
