Jerry Cantrell

The band relaunched a few years later with singer William DuVall, but in the meantime, Cantrell had also started a solo career with the albums Boggy Depot and Degradation Trip Volumes 1 & 2. Now, almost 20 years later, after another hiatus at Alice In Chains, it was finally time for a new solo album. Brighten, released in October, was recorded with producer Tyler Bates (Marilyn Manson) and guest appearances from Duff McKagan (Guns 'n' Roses), Gil Sharone and Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan).
