Alice in Chains are promising to play their classic hits and new tracks from Black Gives Way to Blue on a North American tour that starts February 2nd in Vancouver. Tickets for the trek — which stretches until late March — go on sale December 4th and 5th.

“We have never worked this fucking hard on a record,” guitarist Jerry Cantrell told RS before the release of Blue. “It’s a hell of a challenge to try to add to a legacy. It takes a big set of fucking balls — four sets of balls — to take on a challenge like this, and we did it for the same reasons we made music before. We care about it, we respect what we did, and we also respect the fact that we want to continue to make music with each other, so there’s a certain level that it has to live up to.”
