Alice in Chains to Play "Handful" of Rarely Performed Classic Tracks and Deep Cuts on Tour

Johnny BuzzerioIf you attend any of Alice in Chains' upcoming tour dates, you're in for a treat.  Guitarist Jerry Cantrell says the band plans on playing some rarely performed classic tracks and deep cuts from the AIC catalog while they're out on the road.

"We didn't play 'Rotten Apple' [from 1994's Jar of Flies] in years," he tells Grammy.com.  "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 adds that Alice in Chains will be peppering sets with a healthy number of songs from the band's upcoming album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.  "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 explains. "And I think all of those songs [from The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here] will translate amazingly live.  It'll be interesting to see, I can't wait to do that."

The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here will arrive in stores on Tuesday and features 12 new tracks.  If you pre-order the album now at iTunes, you'll score an immediate download of the band's current single, "Stone."
