You better check my brain, because I’ve been down in a hole for so long I’ve become hollow. Oh, and Alice In Chains are back with their first new album in five years titled Rainier Fog. Their sixth album, and third with frontman William DuVall will hit you in the ears on August 24th via BMG.

To celebrate the announcement, they’ve dropped their second snippet of the album in the shape of single So Far Under, following previous single The One You Know.

Speaking on So Far Under, and the album as a whole, DuVall commented:

“It’s about feeling completely up against it – outnumbered, surrounded, facing seemingly unbeatable odds and being really pissed off about it. It was inspired by personal circumstances, as well as events in the wider world. But it’s not as resigned to defeat as it may seem. The lyric is a cold, hard assessment of a difficult situation but the music has a message all its own. There’s still room to flip the script. Every aspect of writing and recording this song will always be remembered with a lot of joy – from recording the basic tracks and the guitar solo at Studio X in Seattle to doing further overdubs at Nick Raskulinecz’s studio in rural Tennessee. Everyone in the band and our studio team really stepped up and knocked it out of the park on this one. We’re extremely proud of this song and the entire album.”

Rainier Fog marks a few firsts for the band. In addition to being their first album in five years, it’s their first album for BMG and their first time recording in their hometown of Seattle in more than 20 years. Rainier Fog was recorded at Studio X, the same facility where they tracked 1995’s self-titled album.
