Professionally filmed video footage of ALICE IN CHAINS‘ September 19 performance at the Rock In Rio festival in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil can be seen below.

ALICE IN CHAINS‘ fifth studio album, “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here”, sold 62,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart. The disc follows up 2009’s “Black Gives Way To Blue”, which was the group’s first all-new collection of material in 14 years. That CD opened with 126,000 units back in October 2009 to debut at No. 5.

ALICE IN CHAINS was last in the Top Two with its self-titled 1995 set, which debuted at No. 1 on that year’s November 25 chart, according to Billboard.com. It would be their final studio release with singer Layne Staley, who died in 2002.

“The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here” is ALICE IN CHAINS‘ second album with William DuVall on vocals.

DuVall began touring with the group in 2006, four years after the death of Layne Staley from a drug overdose.

ALICE IN CHAINS began working on the new disc in 2011, but the sessions for the album were delayed when guitarist Jerry Cantrell had to undergo shoulder surgery.
