Veteran grunge rockers Alice In Chains have revealed the title of their new album.

'The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here' will be released in May, and is set to include the track 'Hollow', which was released to fans in December 2012. The album is the follow-up to their 2009 comeback album 'Black Gives Way To Blue', their first in 14 years, and the first following the death of original singer Layne Staley in 2002.

Touring the US throughout April and May, Alice In Chains have so far announced just one UK date, on the main stage of Download festival on Saturday June 15.

Last year, guitarist Jerry Cantrell told Rolling Stone that a shoulder injury delayed the recording of the album.

I had shoulder surgery. I had to get some bone spurs and torn cartilage taken care of, so that put me back a little bit. But we’ve been writing through the whole process.



Although Elton John appeared on their previous record, the axeman said the new record won't feature any guest stars. He said: "That was just the universe lining up right. I had nothing to do with that other than asking. What he is, beyond anything else, is a fucking amazing musician. And he's the guy who inspired me to start playing music, so to have him play on one of our records – especially such a meaningful record, where we're restarting our musical careers and saying goodbye and honoring our buddy – it's a tremendous thing."
