Alice In Chains New Single “Never Fade” Leaks


Alice In Chains’ new single “Never Fade” has been released. Alice In Chains had previously released a preview of the song on Thursday.

“Never Fade” opens with a bassline, followed by creepy vocals from William DuVall. It then goes into a poppier chorus that sounds like “Voices” and recent poppier leaning AIC songs, with a hint of Sammy Hagar Van Halen. The bassline is prominent throughout the song. The verses see DuVall really tap into a Layne Staley type of vocal melody. DuVall and Jerry Cantrell trade lines during the chorus, though Cantrell is more prominent.

This is the third track to be released for AIC’s new album Rainier Fog, following “The One You Know” and “So Far Under.” The record is set for release on August 24th, and it will be the band’s sixth studio album, and third to feature William DuVall.

    It sounds like they are trying to return to Layne style vocals in this song. Looking forward to hearing the rest of the album.

    • Katie

      Gonna be a very long two weeks… lol

  • Atyla Reis

    Sounds like an old solo album from Jerry, something from Boggy Depot, but it sounds modern too. Really nice song!

    Hot damn boys!!!
    This song is REALLY good – awesome… not as heavy and sludgy as the first two, or *Setting Sun*, but really, really good. There are parts of this song where I hear Layne…
    I mean I HEAR him.

    Thank you Brett… 🙂

    Two more weeks Friends!!!
    Peace – K

      I think Layne would have loved this song. :).

      • Katie

        Yes I felt the same way the 1st time I listened to it Olga. Coolness… 🙂

  • assaf perets

    god bless AIC and especially Jerry Cantrell

    • Katie

      Yes. Yes. Yes. Those 4 men are SO talented (well – actually 5 if you count Nick R.) – but of course I am biased… heh

  • Raj

    The verses are much stronger than they lyrics very Layne Staley style dark and brooding.

    • Katie

      Agreed Raj. I hope *Rainier Fog* blows the charts apart. I believe it will.

  • Olga Stewart

    Wowza but William does sound a lot like Layne on this particular song.

    And this song is also great.

    These guys can do no wrong. :).

    • Katie

      Oh how I DO love posting on a board where there are good folk of like-mind… 😀
