Christmas has come a week early for Alice in Chains fans as the group has released a lyric video for the title track of their forthcoming album.
The group posted the "Hollow" lyric video on their official website on Tuesday. The video was created by fans and comprised of images submitted through Instagram.
The single for "Hollow" will be released on iTunes on January 8, and will be followed by the Vevo premiere of the song's official companion video.
Set for a spring 2013 release, Alice In Chains' upcoming album was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones).
Raskulinecz also produced the band's hugely successful 2009 release Black Gives Way To Blue, which entered Billboard's Top 200 at No. 5, sold over one million copies, spawned two No. 1 hit singles ("Check My Brain" and "Your Decision") and a third ("Lesson Learned") that went top 10, earned two Grammy nominations and saw the band (vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell, vocalist/guitarist William DuVall, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez) headlining a sold-out international tour that wrapped at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In a recent interview with Guitar World, Cantrell said, "In my opinion, that record stood up to anything else we've put out in our career. Hopefully, the new album will connect with people in the same way." Watch the new video here.
