Alice in Chains is already rolling through like a blazing fire but that’s just them warming up. Playing the packed Sands Bethlehem Event Center on May 7, the band is preparing for the release of their new album ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.’
AIC ripped through classics like “Them Bones” while also finding room to stash their latest singles into the set. The new singles are seamless, strung together by guitarist Jerry Cantrell’s powerful riffs and unwavering vocals.
Everyone knows Cantrell is the heart and soul of AIC. While the very debatable band has seen its share of the rough rock star road since the passing of both original lead singer Layne Staley and bassist Mike Starr, Cantrell has beaten the odds to bring them back to life.
With the help of vocalist William DuVall, AIC is able to bring a new generation of fans in with their hard guitar licks and undoubtedly, perfect harmonized voices. They’re one of the few thriving Seattle grunge bands able to stick around and be relevant enough to push through the dry, overly done rock music today.
AIC’s live dynamic may still have some subtle kinks but there’s no denying that the band has found their place once again. AIC won’t throw gimmicks at you like tossing some fake blood onto the audience. AIC delivers a straight to the point rock show. Finally, music is the center of a rock concert again. If that’s not refreshing, what is?
