Alice In Chains singer/guitarist Jerry Cantrell has hired Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan) on guitar and Gil Sharone (Marilyn Manson/Dillinger Escape Plan) on drums, and Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses/Velvet Revolver) on bass for his new solo band.
Cantrell posted photos from his new music video, “Here’s a couple better pics than the ones leaked yesterday. May be time to upgrade that phone? Just sayin 🤘🏻 📷 @jimlouvau.”
Cantrell told Gibson in January 2020 about his new solo album, ” “I’ve been in this band, in ALICE IN CHAINS, since 1987, so 33 years. And that’s always been my first love and my commitment, but I did have the opportunity to make a couple of solo records, and since we started the band back up, I really didn’t have the opportunity to revisit that.
“[Alice In Chains] just finished touring in September  off of ‘Rainier Fog’, and we generally take about a year off when we’re done touring anyway — just give it a rest for a second and then get it reinvigorated and focus on what’s new. So we’re gonna take a year off, so I thought I’d maybe do some shows and I’m working on some music as well.”
He told People TV, “When I’m with Alice, I’m with Alice, and that takes the majority of my time. This year, we’re taking a little time off, so… If you liked any of the solo work that I did or the work with ALICE, I’m sure you might like some of this stuff too.”
