Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell is talking about the band’s upcoming tour with Deftones and Mastodon.
He tells MTV News that the trek, which has been dubbed the BlackDiamondSkye tour, brings together a lot of different styles.
“You’ve got three bands that are pretty distinct, and pretty unique in their own way, and who have worked really hard at throwing out some music,” he says. “And we’re gonna throw it all out together.”
Cantrell adds, “It’s better than a Reese’s. You know, Reese’s, you get two great tastes together . . . we’re kind of like an Almond Joy. You get almonds, chocolate and coconut, so you get three great flavors on one tour.”
This month, Alice In Chains has a few European dates scheduled, plus an appearance at South Dakota’s Rock ‘N Rev fest. The BlackDiamondSkye shows kick off September 16
