Pearl Jam & Alice In Chains Supergroup Mad Season Revisited and Expanded

(Radio.com) At the height of the '90s "grunge" era, members of three of Seattle's biggest bands got together for a side-project that has taken on legendary status. Mad Season featured Pearl Jam's guitarist Mike McCready, Alice In Chains' frontman Layne Staley and Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin (along with a lesser-known bass player named John Baker Saunders).

Their sole album, Above, featured a couple of classic songs, including "River Of Deceit," "Wake Up" and "I Don't Know Anything."

Now, surviving members McCready and Martin are putting out an expanded reissue. (Saunders died in 1999 and Staley in 2002.) The Above Deluxe Edition will be out on April 2, and will contain two CDs and one DVD.

It will include the original album with unreleased songs from the band's unfinished second album, with new lyrics and vocals from former Screaming Trees singer Mark Lanegan. Lanegan contributed vocals to Above's "I'm Above" and "Long Gone Day." More details.
