Regarding "Black Gives Way To Blue", new ALICE IN CHAINS singer William DuVall told The Flint Journal, "I think you can expect a really dense, really heavy but really ethereal and cathartic sonic experience.
"We took our time with this record. There was certainly no shortage of thoughts and feelings to address with everything that's gone down. It's a snapshot of our journey from early 2006 to this point right now. It's the story of our coming together. It's also the story of a band that is both celebrating its legacy but also opening the door to the future, and mourning the loss of a friend, one of the great singers of all time, Layne Staley. But it really is a testament to for every door that closes, there's another one that opens, if you chose to open it. They lost somebody but they also gained somebody."
