Alice in Chains Rule

(Virgin) Hailed by Spin as "one of the catchiest songs of Alice In Chains' history," lead single "Check My Brain" has blanketed rock and alternative radio and rocketed straight to No. 1 on Billboard's Rock Songs Chart and No. 1 on the R&R Rock Chart.

The riff-driven track appears on the band's highly anticipated new album, Black Gives Way To Blue (Virgin/EMI), available September 29th. Alice In Chains will celebrate the release of Black Gives Way To Blue with a special two-night performance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on September 29th and 30th. Next up is a headlining tour of Europe, set to kick off November 12th in Glasgow.

The "Check My Brain" video premiered yesterday on MTV2's "Unleashed," airing every hour on the hour. It also debuted on MTVu, as well as on MTVMusic.com, MTV2.com and MTVu.com.

The clip was directed by Alex Courtes, whose credits include U2's "Vertigo," Wolfmother's "Woman" and the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army." The video can be seen here:
