ALICE IN CHAINS have confirmed that they will be playing a series of U.S. club dates starting on May 18. Exact cities and dates will be announced soon.
As previously reported, ALICE IN CHAINS have selected William DuVall to sing lead vocals with the group on their upcoming U.S. club tour and subsequent European trek.
DuVall performed two songs with the reunited ALICE IN CHAINS last month in New Jersey at a taping of the VH1 Classic series "Decades Rock Live!".
Guitarist Jerry Cantrell told Launch that he'd also like to see other musicians perform with the reactivated group, who are touring in honor of late singer Layne Staley. "The door's open to invite anybody," he said. We'd like anybody to be a part of it. There's tons of guys that we love and that Layne loved, you know, that we'd love to be a part of this on a part-time basis."
DuVall, who sings and plays guitar in COMES WITH THE FALL, has also sung ALICE IN CHAINS material as part of Cantrell's solo touring band.
Guest singers who have jammed with the members of ALICE IN CHAINS during the past year include TOOL's Maynard James Keenan and former PANTERA frontman Philip Anselmo.
The band will begin its European tour on May 26 in Lisbon, Portugal. A full list of dates can be seen at AliceInChains.com.
