The return of Alice in Chains has without a doubt been a success. Not content to cover old ground, the band picked up where they left off and moved forward with new voice William DuVall replacing Layne Staley, who died in 2002. 'Acid Bubble' may be the best song to capture the Seattle band's slow riffs into new territory.

The video for 'Acid Bubble' captures a slowly twisting motif; a descent into some kind of madness is met with spinning visuals trapped in a slimy nerve center. Directed by Nick Goso and under the production of Spy Films ('District 9'), the video also has an interactive 360-degree version where, once prompted, you can force the view to go any direction you want.


Alice in Chains are currently on the BLACKDIAMONDSKYE tour alongside the Deftones and Mastodon. According to the band, this will be their last tour done in support of 'Black Gives Way to Blue.'
