Glorious. Heartfelt. Ridiculous. Hilarity is on tap in the new Peter Darley Miller-directed Alice In Chains video for ‘Rainier Fog’.
“In a world where things are becoming increasingly serious, with ‘Rainier Fog’ we have continued our long tradition of making asses out of ourselves in videos,” says drummer Sean Kinney. “So for all of you that were raised bottle-fed, this one is for you. Mission accomplished.”
“We had a great time working with Peter Darley Miller again,” says vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell. “We made AIC 23 in 2013 with him, which was amazing. We had a blast making the ‘Rainier Fog’ music video, which continues the northwest theme of the record. We hope you enjoy it and have a laugh.”
“The band’s maternal instincts were spot on,” says Miller. “It was a kind and loving environment. I felt special.”
Miller’s AIC 23 followed 2009’s tongue-in-cheek Black Gives Way To Blue EPK and the legendary NONA TAPES.
‘Rainier Fog’ is the title track of Alice In Chains’ most recent release, which hit No. 1 across Billboard’s Rock, Alternative and Hard Music Charts and No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart and earned them a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album.
Over the course of their remarkable career, Alice In Chains (vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell, drummer Sean Kinney, bassist Mike Inez and vocalist/guitarist William DuVall) have garnered multiple Grammy nominations, sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, and amassed a diehard international fanbase whose members number in the millions.
Their discography features some of the biggest and most important albums in rock history, including 1992’s quadruple-platinum-certified Dirt, 1994’s triple-platinum-certified EP Jar of Flies, which was the first EP in music history to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and 1995’s self-titled double-platinum-certified Alice In Chains, which also entered the Billboard Top 200 at No. 1.
They returned in grand style in 2009 with the critically acclaimed Black Gives Way To Blue, which hit No. 1 across the rock and alternative charts, earned a Grammy nomination, was certified Gold and hailed by Vice as “a record that’s as powerful as anything the band has done.” Alice In Chains remain one of the most successful and influential American rock bands of all time.
On May 20th, Alice In Chains will embark on an international headline tour that will take them to Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow, Birmingham, London, the Netherlands, Paris, Brussels, Luxembourg, Zurich, Prague, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Finland, Russia and Greece, before an extensive run of co-headline dates in the US with Korn.
