Alice In Chains have announced a UK and European tour for next year.

The Seattle outfit will kick off the run of 14 shows with three dates in the UK, before heading to mainland Europe. They’ll be joined on select dates by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

The shows have been organised in support of the band’s new album Rainier Fog (opens in new tab), which launched back in August via BMG.

The tour news comes hot on the heels of Alice In Chains releasing a video for Never Fade (opens in new tab).

Speaking about Rainier Fog, guitarist Jerry Cantrell said: “It’s a record we haven’t done yet, but it’s also a record that has all the elements of anything you would expect from us. It’s got our fingerprint. 

“We’re really proud of the material we wrote and the performances we captured. There’s some really heavy shit, some really ugly stuff, some really beautiful stuff, some weirdo trippy shit… it’s good.”

Tickets for the tour will go on general sale on Friday (November 9) at 9am GMT.
