Alice in Chains Compare Downloading To Prison Rape

(antiMusic) Not even Lars went this far in his war against Napster. Alice in Chains' drummer Sean Kinney compared having their new album leaked and illegally downloaded to being raped in prison. He was speaking metaphorically of course.

Blabbermouth reports: Tim Virgin of Chicago's Q101 radio station conducted an interview with Alice In Chains when the band played an acoustic set at the city's Hard Rock Cafe on Saturday, September 19. During the chat, the Alice In Chains members were asked for their thoughts on their new album, "Black Gives Way To Blue", being leaked on the Internet two weeks prior to the CD's official release date.

"You know it's gonna happen 'cause it's part of [how the industry works nowadays], but you just hope it doesn't happen too far in advance," drummer Sean Kinney replied. "It's nothing unique [to this band]. [But] we hadn't been through it [before], 'cause we hadn't made a record in 14 years, so I think that's the initial shock. It's like, 'What?' We were talking about it earlier... It's like going to prison you're know you're gonna get raped, but you're not ready for it. You think you're all prepared for it, but you're not really prepared for how violent that rape is. It's like, 'Wow! He's really giving it to me.'" - Check out the interview here
