Alice In Chains: Scala, London

Stephen Dalton, Times, The, August 2009

CONTEMPORARIES OF Nirvana and Pearl Jam during the Seattle grunge boom of the late 1980s and early 1990s, Alice In Chains returned from a long hiatus with a one-off London show on Tuesday. The set was mostly a memory-jogging selection of the band's doom-laden grunge-metal anthems, but it also featured a sneak preview of their first studio album in 14 years, Black Gives Way to Blue, due in late September.
