Multi-platinum-selling headliners Alice In Chains are touring in support of Black Gives Way To Blue, which was named “Album of the Year” at the recent Revolver Golden Gods Award show. Fueled by the Grammy nominated smash “Check My Brain,” which rocketed to number one on the Billboard Rock Songs Chart, Black Gives Way To Blue entered Billboard’s Top 200 at number five. They maintained momentum with follow-up hit “Your Decision,” which also hit to top spot on the Rock Songs Chart, along with a string of sold out headlining tours around the world. The Boston Globe wrote “Alice In Chains is back in business and business is good” and a Guitar World magazine readers poll voted Black Gives Way To Blue “Rock Album of the Year.”
Deftones, one of the most enduring and influential forces in modern rock, recently released their newest album, Diamond Eyes on May 4. The sixth full-length studio effort by the Grammy-winning, platinum-certified group was recorded after their best friend and bassist Chi Cheng sustained a debilitating brain injury from a car accident in November of 2008. “After Chi’s accident, it would have been easy for us to make a sad record,” says singer and guitarist Chino Moreno. “But really, this is an optimistic record.”
Globally celebrated, critically revered, hard rock masterminds Mastodon have created one of the most daring and praised albums in recent years with their current and fifth full-length effort Crack the Skye, which entered the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at number 11. Time magazine placed it third on its list of the top ten “Best Albums of 2009,” writing, “Thunderous, disciplined and expansive…the ambition and tenacity of Mastodon’s music makes Crack the Skye sonically unforgettable.”
“BlackDiamondSkye” tour featuring Alice In Chains with special guests Deftones and Mastodon is part of the Belle Tire Concert Series.
