Alice in Chains extended their headlining tour with new North American dates. The new leg launches August 22nd in Vancouver and concludes September 15th in Phoenix.

The alt-metal band previously announced a worldwide live run – including stops throughout North America and Europe – that kicks off April 28th in Boston. Ticket information is available at the group’s website.

According to a statement about the trek, Alice in Chains are currently “putting finishing touches” on their sixth studio album with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, Foo Fighters, Mastodon), who helmed the quartet’s two previous LPs, 2009’s Black Gives Way to Blue and 2013’s The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. The record is due out “later this year,” though the band has yet to announce a track list or release date.

Two Alice in Chains rarities – live versions of their 1992 hit “Would?” and 1990’s “It Ain’t Like That” – appear on a 2017 deluxe edition of the Singles soundtrack. The previous year, the band contributed an ornate cover of Rush’s 2112 ballad “Tears” for that LP’s 40th anniversary reissue.

Ozzy Osbourne included Alice in Chains’ first LP, 1990’s Facelift, on his “10 Favorite Metal Albums” list for Rolling Stone. “Another amazing debut,” the singer said. “‘Man in the Box’ is a classic. Layne Staley was a lovely guy. It’s such a shame that he couldn’t overcome his demons.”
