With a handful of weeks left until the release of their sixth studio album, Alice in Chains have returned with another new song. On Friday (Aug. 10), the Washington-founded band unleashed the third single from their forthcoming album; a track titled “Never Fade.” Listen to the almost-five-minute, hard-hitting song above.
“Never Fade” will join previously released tracks “The One You Know” and “So Far Under” on the band’s impending new record. Rainier Fog is due out Aug. 24 through BMG. Pre-orders for the new album are still available on the band’s website.
Rainier Fog is the long-awaited follow-up to the group’s 2013 release, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.
In support of Rainier Fog‘s release, the band previously announced plans to hit the road during the months of August and September. Alice in Chain’s upcoming tour will begin on Aug. 22 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver. After being on the road for a couple of weeks, the excursion will conclude on Sept. 15 at the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix.
Following a few weeks off the road, the band will resume their touring itinerary with another tens stops in October. The recently added tour dates will being on Oct. 14 at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento and conclude two weeks later on Oct. 28 at the Hard Rock Events Center in Hollywood, Florida.
