ALICE IN CHAINS' Jerry Cantrell To Sign With Roadrunner Records!

December 20, 2001

ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell is on the verge of inking a long-term record deal with Roadrunner Records. The axeman's debut release for the label, due in early 2002, will be a single-CD compilation of the strongest cuts from the Degradation Trip Vol. 1 and 2 sessions, which took place a year ago with the help of former FAITH NO MORE/KORN drummer Mike Bordin and OZZY/ex-SUICIDAL TENDENCIES bassist Robert Trujillo. Although the album's final track listing has not yet been finalized, the CD will likely include 14 of the 25 songs the aforementioned band laid down as part of the original recording process, with a two-CD version due to be released at a later point containing all the songs tracked during the same sessions. The two-CD edition, which is not due to be released until late 2002, will include the following track listing:

Disc One:
01. Psychotic Break
02. Bargain Basement Howard Hughes
03. Owned
04. Angel Eyes
05. Solitude
06. Mother Spinning In Her Grave
07. Hellbound
08. Spiderbite
09. Profalse Idol
10. Feel The Void
11. Locked On
12. Gone

Disc Two:
01. Castaway
02. Chemical Tribe
03. What It Takes
04. Dying Inside
05. Siddhartha
06. Instrumental
07. She Was My Girl
08. Pig Charmer
09. Anger Rising
10. SOS
11. Give It A Name
12. Thanks Anyway
13. 31/32

Much heavier than Cantrell's 1998 solo debut Boggy Depot, the upcoming CD is said to be a lot closer to ALICE IN CHAINS' classic early songwriting efforts than its predecessor and features some of Jerry's most impressive vocal work to date, at times bearing an uncanny resemblance to that of AIC frontman Layne Staley. A single from the album, possibly containing the track “Anger Rising”, will be issued several weeks prior to the full-length CD's release.
