The "new" Alice in Chains
March 27, 2009 6:00pm CST
Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990's. It was one of the most successful acts of the 90's and sold over 14 million albums in the United States alone. Although never officially disbanding, Alice in Chains was plagued by extended inactivity due to former lead singer Layne Staley's problem with substance abuse, causing his death in 2002. Alice in Chains reunited in 2005 and as of 2009 have been working on the first studio album in 14 years, with new lead vocalist William DuVall. With a background history established, my question is, do you think that the "new" Alice in Chains will be as successful or will they fail like many reunited bands??

Yeah i am a big fan of Alice in Chains specially when Layne is still around, although i still pretty much prefer him as the lead singer of the band. Too bad, rough time comes and gets the most of him. It's a good thing they got back together with a new lead singer and creating new songs for the band.
