Alice In Chains Premiere New Song “So Far Under”, Reveal Details For New Album “Rainier Fog”

Alice In Chains have premiered a new song titled “So Far Under.” This track is from the band’s new album “Rainier Fog,” which will be released on August 24.

William DuVall said the following about “So Far Under“:

“It’s about feeling completely up against it – outnumbered, surrounded, facing seemingly unbeatable odds and being really pissed off about it. It was inspired by personal circumstances, as well as events in the wider world. But it’s not as resigned to defeat as it may seem. The lyric is a cold, hard assessment of a difficult situation but the music has a message all its own.

There’s still room to flip the script. Every aspect of writing and recording this song will always be remembered with a lot of joy – from recording the basic tracks and the guitar solo at Studio X in Seattle to doing further overdubs at Nick Raskulinecz’s studio in rural Tennessee. Everyone in the band and our studio team really stepped up and knocked it out of the park on this one. We’re extremely proud of this song and the entire album.”
