COMES WITH THE FALL, the Los Angeles-based band featuring ALICE IN CHAINS touring singer William DuVall and former DANZIG/current THE MERCY CLINIC drummer Bevan Davies, will play its first concerts in over three-and-a-half years beginning on February 27 in Los Angeles.
Commented the group: "We're starting off slowly at first, testing the waters in California and Nevada, so we hope of our supporters there will make themselves known and seen! We will be playing a LOT of new music from the recently released 'The Reckoning' EP and the still as-yet-unreleased 'Beyond The Last Light' album, so get ready for the new sounds of CWTF in the '07!! And get there early to catch our friends PROGRAM THE DEAD, a great band with a fantastic new album of their own."

ALICE IN CHAINS filmed its concert on October 31, 2006 in Providence, Rhode Island for a possible DVD release. The Halloween performance was two hours and forty minutes long, with the group playing additional songs for the filming. There's no indication yet of when the DVD could surface or what other features it might contain.
The group's most recent North American tour featured the reunited band playing a two-hour show that included an acoustic middle section as well as an eight-minute video tribute to late ALICE IN CHAINS frontman Layne Staley.
Staley died in 2002 after a long struggle with drug addiction that effectively put ALICE IN CHAINS on ice in 1996.
