Alice In Chains adds Providence to tour schedule

, Staff

If you missed Alice In Chains’ soldout show at the Orepheum Theatre on Sunday, you’ll have another chance to catch them this spring. The band will pay a visit to nearby Providence, Rhode Island next month as they continue to support their new album, Black Gives Way to Blue. The band will play the Dunkin’ Donuts Center, home to the Providence Bruins and the Providence College Friars, on Friday, April 16. Tickets are now on sale through Ticketmaster and are priced at $43 for all sections.

Black Gives Way to Blue, which features hit singles Your Decision” and “Check My Brain”, was released last September and debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200. The album is their first studio effort since their 1995 self-titled album and marks their first with new lead singer William DuVall.

Alice In Chains rose to fame as part of the 90’s grunge movement, both originating in Seattle. After releasing four albums, the band sank into a period of inactivity that culminated with the death of lead vocalist Layne Staley from drug overdose in 2002. Guitarist Jerry Cantrell, bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney reformed in 2005. After touring with Duvall for a couple of years, they recorded Black Gives Way to Blue in late 2008 and early 2009 with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver).
