Alice In Chains are heading to New Zealand in support of their recently released album Rainer Fog, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock, Alternative and Hard Music Charts and No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart.

The album, which is the band’s first in five years, has been drawing rave reviews from fans and critics alike.

Part of Rainer Fog was recorded at Seattle’s Studio X, the same facility where the band tracked 1995’s self-titled Alice In Chains album (back when the studio was known as Bad Animals). It was the first time the band recorded in Seattle in 20 years. The Rainer Fog recording process also saw the band spend time at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles and at the Nashville studio of producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush). Rainer Fog is the third straight Alice In Chains album recorded with producer Raskulinecz and engineer Paul Figueroa. The album was mixed by Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool).

Over the course of their remarkable career, Alice In Chains have garnered multiple Grammy nominations, sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and amassed a diehard international fanbase whose members number in the millions. They remain one of the most successful and influential American rock bands of all time.
