Alice in Chains is an American rock band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1987 
by guitarist and songwriter Jerry Cantrell and original lead vocalist Layne Staley
The initial lineup was rounded out by drummer Sean Kinney
and bassist Mike Starr (who was replaced in 1993 by Mike Inez).
Although widely associated with grunge music, the band's sound incorporates heavy metal and acoustic elements. 

The band is known for its distinct vocal style which often included the harmonized vocals of Staley and Cantrell.
Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s, 

along with other Seattle bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden.
In March 1992, the band returned to the studio having new songs written primarily on the road.
The material has an overall darker feel than their previous album Facelift

with six of the album's thirteen songs dealing with the subject of addiction.
On September 29, 1992, Alice in Chains released its second album, Dirt (band's highest selling album to date).

Dirt spawned five top 30 singles: "Rooster", "Them Bones", "Would?", "Angry Chair
and "Down in a Hole", and remained on the charts for nearly two years.
Although never officially disbanding, Alice in Chains was plagued by extended inactivity from 1996 

onwards due to Staley's substance abuse, which resulted in his death in 2002. 
The band reunited in 2005 with new guitarist-vocalist William DuVall, and released their fourth studio album, 
Black Gives Way to Blue, in 2009.The album was a huge success. 
Alice in Chains released their fifth studio album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, on May 28, 2013.
