Alice in Chains Release New Single ‘Stone’

Alice in Chains, 'Stone'
Virgin/EMI

As Alice in Chains‘ newest album, ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here,’ creeps closer and closer, anticipation for the record’s release has been growing towards a peak. Although ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ won’t see the light of day until May 28, Alice in Chains have unleashed the new single ‘Stone’ to help you through the wait.

Alice in Chains took 2013 by the throat early in the year, as they revealed the mesmerizing single ‘Hollow’ in January. ‘Hollow’ leapt to the top spot of the active rock chart, which took guitarist Jerry Cantrell by surprise. “The initial response to ‘Hollow’ has been f—ing incredible, totally not what we intended, and that’s f—ing awesome.” He explains to Rolling Stone, “We just put that song out there for the fans and then it ended up turning into a No. 1 single, a six-minute sludgy metal tune. That’s always fun, to see something like that happen.”

The new single ‘Stone’ has its fair share of sludge as well, further delving into a dark and unnerving side of alternative rock and atmospheric metal.

Last week, Alice in Chains unveiled the release date, album art and track listing for ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here,’ playing a clever trick on fans by only revealing part of the new album art at first. As the red portion of the album art continues to be peeled back, two triceratops skulls layered on top of each other become more prominent, creating a visual of the devil in the center.

As for the new single ‘Stone,’ check out a 90-second preview of the track in the audio player below, and stay excited for the release of ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ on May 28.
