Band’s first release with new singer will be out this autumn

Legendary grunge titans Alice In Chains have finished recording their new album, which is set to be released this September.

It will be the band’s first record since singer Layne Staley‘s death in 2002, and features Comes With The Fall singer William DuVall on vocals.

“It’s a big thing. I’ve joined a group that has a strong identity and a strong legacy,” DuVall told the Los Angeles Times.

Layne Staley was found dead in his home in April 2002 after a drug overdose.

The band reformed in 2005 after a series of benefit shows with guest singers.
