Alice In Chains have released a clip of the music video for their new single “The One You Know.” The song is set to premiere tomorrow.
Watch the clip below!
The Baldy posted the following blog on Alice In Chains blog about the band’s Toronto show:
Much like any other job, people tend to settle into routines on the road.
Sleeping, eating, working.
All of those things tend to fall into some sort of pattern out here, and with any pattern comes a degree of repetition and redundancy.
As I’ve mentioned numerous times before (redundancy!), Mike likes to insult me.
Name calling and pointing at me with the naughty finger are pretty much a daily occurrence out here, but to his credit, that’s not enough for Mike.
Mike Inez likes to keep things fresh.
And last night in Toronto he actually came up with something new.
It was later in the show, and I popped into the area behind the monitor board to check things out for a bit.
We have a new monitor engineer on this tour.
He’s a really nice guy and is doing a great job so far, but we don’t know each other very well yet, and even if we did, I know to stay back out of his way during the show.
So when he turned around during Would? with a big smile on his face and flipped me off, I was a little taken aback.
I wasn’t sure how to react until he pointed behind him.
There stood Mike, on the opposite side of the stage, laughing his ass off, all without missing a note.
What had just happened?
Well, each band member has a little button on a pedal that they can click, which allows them to speak into the microphone and only their tech and the monitor engineer can hear.
So if you’re ever at a show and see one of the guys talking into the mic, but you don’t hear anything, that just means they’re relaying a message to someone off stage.
This time that someone was me.
And the message was very evident.
In the middle of performing one of the band’s biggest hits to a sold out crowd, Mike managed to spot me in the wings and relay an R rated sign language message to me.
After 25 years of friendship and touring the world together, Mike has flipped me off thousands of times.
And I’ve returned the message just as often.
But history was made in Toronto when Mike used modern electronic technology to engage a third party proxy to convey to me via a specific hand gesture that I should go engage myself in a physically impossible act.
