Alice in Chains’ axman Jerry Cantrell has entered a recording studio in Los Angeles to begin working on his first solo album in the span of almost twenty years. “It’s time to make the Raawwwkkk!!!” he posted on his Instagram account, which depicted several racked guitars at Dave’s Room Studios in North Hollywood, California.
Alice in Chains is currently on an extended break after a world tour in support of their 2018 release, Rainier Fog, making this the guitarist’s first full-length project since 2002’s Degradation Trip.
“When I’m with Alice, I’m with Alice, and that takes the majority of my time,” said Cantrell in a People TV interview. “This year, we’re taking a little time off, so… If you liked any of the solo work that I did or the work with Alice, I’m sure you might like some of this stuff too.”
Cantrell recently performed a rare solo show back in December at the Pico Union Project with his solo material and Alice in Chains songs and was joined by ex-Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato, former Megadeth and Black Label Society bassist Hames Lomenzo, and ex-Marilyn Manson members Tyler Bates and Gil Sharone.
