Alice In Chains has shared another rocking song from their upcoming album Rainier Fog. Listen to "So Far Under" above on YouTube.
The song sets a dark vibe with sludgy guitar riffs and haunting vocals. With strong melodies and a deep groove, this is the sound of vintage Alice In Chains.
Songwriter, singer, and guitarist William DuVall shared a comment on the song in a press release:
It's about feeling completely up against it – outnumbered, surrounded, facing seemingly unbeatable odds and being really pissed off about it. It was inspired by personal circumstances, as well as events in the wider world. But it's not as resigned to defeat as it may seem. The lyric is a cold, hard assessment of a difficult situation but the music has a message all its own. There's still room to flip the script. Every aspect of writing and recording this song will always be remembered with a lot of joy — from recording the basic tracks and the guitar solo at Studio X in Seattle to doing further overdubs at Nick Raskulinecz's studio in rural Tennessee. Everyone in the band and our studio team really stepped up and knocked it out of the park on this one. We're extremely proud of this song and the entire album.
The band also shared details about the album today. Rainier Fog is scheduled for release on August 24, 2018. Pick it up on Amazon.
Last month, AIC shared the first single from the album with a music video for "The One You Know."
The band is currently on tour in Europe. For concert tickets and more, check out the Alice in Chains Zumic artist page.
