Alice in Chains plan to pull out some lesser-known tunes on their upcoming trek

Those looking to trek to one of Alice in Chains’ summer tour dates are likely going to hear some lesser-known tracks from the legendary grunge guys. According to guitarist Jerry Cantrell says the guys will be pulling out some rare, deep cuts from the Alice in Chains discography when the band is out on their upcoming tour.

“We didn’t play ‘Rotten Apple’ [from 1994’s ‘Jar of Flies’] in years,” Cantrell told the Grammy website. “We started playing that on the last tour [and it] went over really well. There are always a couple of tunes we pull out that we haven’t played [in years] and I’m sure on this tour there will be another handful that we pull out.”

Cantrell says to also expect to hear plenty of new songs on the tour. “If a song is a good song it should sound like a good song [in] its simplest element, that’s the way we’ve always approached things,” he said. “And I think all of those songs [from the band’s new album] will translate amazingly live. It’ll be interesting to see, I can’t wait to do that.”

Alice in Chains’ latest studio album, “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here,” is currently available.
