“CALLING ROCK SOLDIERS!! Strike up the band, fire up your DVR’s and/or your winter coats… this just in,” begins a statement found on the legendary six-stringer’s Facebook page which detailed the news.

Jerry Cantrell Recalls Layne Staley ‘Egging’ Him on to Sing Lead Vocals in Alice in Chains


During a recent Q&A session at Rock Fantasy Camp, Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell revealed that Layne Staley encouraged him to take on a more active role in singing lead vocals.

As Alice in Chains began to take charge of the ’90s alternative rock scene, the Seattle group dwelled further and further on their two-man vocal attack, conjuring some of rock’s most beautiful and unnerving harmonies.

“I had a pretty strong background in choir throughout junior high and high school,” Cantrell said, according to Alternative Nation. “I was like the president of my choir in high school. We used to perform acapella, four-part harmony acapella state competition type stuff, like Bartok, great classical type stuff, so kind of dark brooding harmonies and stuff like that.”

“Plus all the bands...
