Alice in Chains

These heavy legends truly have me stoked in 2013. To quote Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World, "We're not worthy! We're not worthy!"

Alice in Chains
Title: TBA
Release Date: Spring
Hell, yes. Fourteen years after Alice in Chains' last release, and seven years after the death of singer Layne Staley, this iconic rock band finally appeased its fans with 2009's Black Gives Way to Blue. Now, singer-guitarist Jerry Cantrell has claimed that the upcoming album is unlike anything they've ever put out, but it's still in Alice in Chains' true fashion. Wanna get a taste? Listen to "Hollow," released late last year, below.

New Alice In Chains probably. The new Tool album always seems to take years, so your rumor is taken with a HUGE grain of salt, and as far as NIN, Trent said it was a goodbye to touring tour, no more intensive tour schedule, but plenty of new music, though he seems to be doing a lot with musical scores lately, so we'll see if he has an album of NIN material.
