“As our principal fundraiser, Founders Award is always a special event for MoPOP and we’re thrilled this year to honor Alice In Chains and provide free access to this magical evening fans around the world. We’re proud to call Alice In Chains hometown heroes but we know we share them with the world.

It’s a testament to their lasting impact that this talented group of musicians has come together to pay tribute to the band’s contributions to music and pop culture. We’re able to show the next generation of creators what’s possible through the funds raised at the event that support our youth development programs, our community engagement and access initiatives, and of course, the cutting-edge exhibitions people from around the world come to Seattle to enjoy.

While this entire night of exclusive performances is free to view for all, our hope is to raise $1 million to support the museum in this difficult and unprecedented year.”

Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell continued:

“It feels truly special to receive the MoPOP Founders Award in our home town of Seattle. It’s also humbling to be joined by so many of our friends, peers and heroes to rock some AIC tunes. I hope people watching enjoy the show as much as we did putting it together. A big hearty thanks to everyone who participated in making this virtual thing happen during these strange times. Music has the power to unite, heal and inspire. It is all of ours. Let’s continue to create and celebrate that which feeds the soul. Rawk on!”

Alice In Chains’ Sean Kinney added:

“When we got to make our first record, I thought, great, we will be able to make one record, do our thing and hope for the best. Now, 30 years later to get this award and still be touring and making music is the most amazing feeling. We are brothers with all of the craziness that goes with it. This is for Layne, Mike, and for all of us now. We can’t wait to get back out on the road once this hellish pandemic is behind us.”

Cult Of Luna To Release “The Raging River” In February

Cult Of Luna will be releasing a new EP titled “The Raging River“ on February 5. The effort comes with five tracks including “Inside Of A Dream,” which features Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, etc.)

“The Raging River” Track Listing:

01. “Three Bridges”
02. “What I Leave Behind”
03. “Inside Of A Dream” (feat. Mark Lanegan)
04. “I Remember”
05. “Wave After Wave“

Johannes Persson commented:

“‘The Raging River‘ feels more like a bridge. A midpoint that needs to be crossed so we can finish what we started with ‘A Dawn To Fear‘. It’s a seamless continuation of the writing process and the creative mindset that has guided us for the last couple of years.
It’s been an interesting as well as an introspective way of working, having our instinct leading the way and then having to figure out where it takes us.

But not only has it been a linear journey, some aspects of it is clearly circular. We have been a fan of Mark Lanegan for many years. So in 2005 when we wrote the song ‘And With Her Came The Birds‘ we had his voice in mind and the working title was ‘The Lanegan Song‘. But we were not many years over 20 and our lack of self-confidence prevented us from even daring to ask.

It took fifteen years for us to get the guts to ask him. Hearing his voice on ‘Inside Of A Dream‘ is nothing more than feeling that we’re inside of a dream.”
