AIC Joined By DAMAGEPLAN Singer In San Diego
Lachman had previously performed with the surviving ALICE IN CHAINS members — guitarist Jerry Cantrell, bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney — at a benefit for victims of the Indonesian tsunami in February 2005. At that show, which took place in Seattle, four vocalists — Lachman, TOOL's Maynard James Keenan, PUDDLE OF MUDD's Wes Scantlin and HEART's Ann Wilson — stepped in for the late Layne Staley, who died of a drug overdose in 2002.
ALICE IN CHAINS — Cantrell, Kinney, Inez and William DuVall (who will handle lead vocals for the group) — will next hit the stage at the Metro in Chicago on Sunday (May 21) before continuing with the U.S. club dates: Boston, Avalon Ballroom, May 22 and New York, Bowery Ballroom, May 23. Following the U.S. dates, the band will head overseas for a series of club dates and festival appearances.
As previously reported, a half-hour interview with ALICE IN CHAINS members Cantrell, Kinney and Inez — which aired earlier in the month on the HDNet (High Definition TV) channel as part of the "Sound Off" program with host Matt Pinfield — has been posted online at this location.
