As you probably know by now, ALICE IN CHAINS' fifth studio album entitled 'The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here' will be released on May 14. The album was produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones) and engineered by Paul Figueroa.
According to The Pulse Of Radio, Jerry Cantrell reassured fans that the band is not breaking up following the release of their highly anticipated NEW album. During an interview with Fuse TV (see below), Cantrell said that he looks at every NEW record "like it's your last" and that he could "rest happily with this being the last record, if that's what it was". Following the interview, the usual onslaught of ridiculous "is this the end of ALICE" headlines surfaced all over the internet. Cantrell has cleared the air, telling Billboard. "What I said was, I approach every record as if it were my last, trying to make it the best record it can be. That's what I meant".
Although there are fans who are not interested in hearing anything by this version of ALICE IN CHAINS, Cantrell said, "I don't do this for what people tell me I should do with my life, or my band. I do what I want to do and what my band wants to do. And we continue to do that".
