Featured Release

Rainier Fog

Alice In Chains: Rainier Fog
Genre: Grunge/Metal/Alt-Rock
Label: BMG Rights Management

90’s grunge titans Alice In Chains have had quite the 2000’s resurgence, releasing both Black Gives Way to Blue and The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here to critical acclaim.  Their success post-Layne Staley has been surprising to say the least – but even if the band will never ascend to the heights of Dirt again, fans can revel in what has been a remarkable ability to stay afloat amid circumstances that ultimately should have sunk the band a long, long time ago.  Listen to “The One You Know” below to hear Alice in Chains still chugging along, as consistent a rock band as there ever was.

Listen to “The One You Know”:
