Alice In Chains Shy Away From Playing Unreleased Songs Live

(hennemusic) As Alice In Chains prepare to release their new album, "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here," on Tuesday, guitarist Jerry Cantrell is explaining the band's reluctance to perform new songs live before they are officially released to the public.

"In the old days if you start out with 'in the old days,' you're totally an old f**k you were able to play a lot more stuff live," Cantrell tells Spin. "But with the advent of the Internet and sharing and sh*t going everywhere, you can't do that anymore.

"We really haven't been playing anything off the new record that's not out yet. We've been playing 'Hollow' and 'Stone', and now that it's going to be released, we're thinking about whipping out 'Phantom Limb' and maybe a few more.

"We used to play new stuff all of the time. When we were touring 'Facelift', we probably played half of 'Dirt' on the end of that tour. It's a cool thing to be able to do, but you hardly have any control over your own music. We'd rather wait until you get the best quality version of what we created before you start getting sh*tty iPhone versions from crappy gigs." more on this story
