Alice In Chains has shared the official trailer for Black Antenna, the 90-minute science fiction film related to the band's new Rainer Fog LP that will be released in 10 parts. Sequences from the movie, which is directed by filmmaker Adam Mason, have already cropped up in the singles for the band's videos "The One You Know" and "Never Fade."
Drummer Sean Kinney said about the project, "We've always toyed with the idea of creating videos for every song on one of our albums. Not only did we do that for Rainier Fog, it got totally out of hand and we made a whole goddamn movie. Everything that will be seen in the videos will be footage from Black Antenna to preface the complete film's release."
The first two parts of Black Antenna will start rolling out on March 7th, with each episode set to a different song from the album. Mason said, "I'm a longtime fan of the band, and this was an opportunity to do something fresh and inspiring from an indie filmmaking side. The sound and vision between album and film are closely intertwined — it was a brilliant synergy that led to a really unique project."
Alice In Chains will hit the road this summer on a co-headlining North American tour with Korn, kicking off on July 18th in Del Valle, Texas and wrapping on September 4th in Mountain View, California. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday (March 1st) at 10:00 a.m. local time at LiveNation.com.
