Alice in Chains follow-up to 2009’s ‘Black Gives Way to Blue’ is currently in the works and bassist Mike Inez recently gave and update on how the highly anticipated project is coming along thus far.

Alice in Chains made their way back to the forefront of hard rock with their 2009 return ‘Black Gives Way to Blue’ — the first album since their final release with Layne Staley in 1995. After Layne’s tragic passing and a long period of inactivity in the AIC camp, the surviving members re-emerged with new vocalist William DuVall.

Reports of their upcoming album first surfaced last summer when Ann Wilson of Heart reported that their new material is “amazing.” Jerry Cantrell’s recent shoulder surgery may have impeded the new album plans for a bit but in a recent interview at NAMM, bassist Mike Inez revealed that things are “all good” in the world of Alice in Chains.

In the interview with Mz. Hollywood, Inez said “We’re holed up, we’re writing the new record. We’re waiting to go in the studio pretty soon — so, looking forward to it.” The in-depth interview then shifted to the question everyone has been dying to know the answer to — how does Mike keep his hair so perfect? We’re proud to bring you the answer to the groundbreaking question before anyone else — shampoo and not f—ing cutting it.
