Alice In Chains have added a second leg of tour dates to their run of North American shows.

The band will hit the road from next month, which will see them perform concerts across North America and Europe.

They’ve now confirmed further shows which will take place from August 22 when they play at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

The live shows have been announced to coincide with the news that vocalist and guitarist Jerry Cantrell, drummer Sean Kinney, bassist Mike Inez and vocalist and guitarist William DuVall are currently putting the finishing touches to their new studio album.

It was recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles with the band working once again with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who was behind the desk for 2013’s The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here and 2009’s Black Gives Way To Blue.

The as-yet-untitled record will be released later this year, with a date still to be announced.
