Stories album by album of Alice in Chains

The Devil Put Dinoaurs Here (2013)

It was released on May 28, 2013. It is the band’s second reunion album. Following a worldwide tour in support of its previous album, Black Gives Way to Blue (2009), Alice in Chains began work on a new album. The making of The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here lasted for more than a year and the release of the album was delayed numerous times. The band entered the studio in July 2011 to start work on their fifth album. During the writing and recording sessions, guitarist Jerry Cantrell underwent shoulder surgery, which resulted in the delay of the album. The recording sessions of The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here were completed in December 2012.

Peaking at number two on the Billboard 200, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here was well received by music critics and “Hollow”, “Stone” and “Voices” were released as singles to promote the album. In April 2013, the band released music videos for the songs “Hollow”, and “Stone”, and in September 2013, music videos for “Voices” and the title track were released on YouTube to further promote the album. The album also reached the top ten in the national albums charts of Australia, Finland and Norway.

About music and lyrics

Jerry Cantrell stated in an interview with Rolling Stone, “We made a unique record that’s completely different from anything we ever did. It encapsulates a period of time, like all records do. You see growth and that the band is moving ahead in new territory that we haven’t been to before, but we haven’t lost our identity.”

Cantrell also stated “There’s some real filth in there. That’s intentional, and that’s also just how we sound together. We’re trying to make a record that we dig and we’re trying to keep the bar high for ourselves and see if we can get past it, and I think that we did again. And of course you want people to dig it too and to respond to it, and to have that start happening is satisfying.”

For the lyrics, Jerry Cantrell stated: “The devil put dinosaurs here / Jesus don’t like a queer / No problem with faith / Just fear,” which appear in the title track. “What’s the old joke?” Cantrell said. “There are two things you never want to get into a conversation or argument about: politics and religion. But fuck, I guess we’re going to be talking about this for awhile.”

On the making the album, Cantrell said to Revolver magazine: “I don’t think you’ll be surprised by anything you hear. … It’s us. But it’s also really unique. It’s got all the elements of any record we’ve put out, but it’s unlike any record we’ve put out. Basically, it’s the next chapter in the Alice in Chains book, and it’s going to be a big one.” Cantrell also said to Guitar World: “In my opinion, Black Gives Way to Blue stood up to anything else we’ve put out in our career. Hopefully, the new album will connect with people in the same way.”
