Special Edition gatefold cover with 2 clear vinyl LPs. Drugs ravaged Alice in Chains in the 1990s. Heroin and cocaine ultimately killed singer/guitarist Layne Stanley in 2002. Eventually, the surviving band members reunited to create and release "Black Gives Way to Blue" in 2009. The best part about their reunion is they picked up seemingly where they left off after their last album. With little changing about their sound in 14 years, the band replaced Stanley with singer William Duvall. Producer Nick Raskulinecz (who helped Rush and The Foo Fighters) guided the recording and songwriting process. With fans still hungry for much more, "Black Gives Way to Blue" opened at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart! The singles "Check My Brain" and "Your Decision" each hit #1 on the Billboard Rock chart. Surprisingly, Elton John plays piano on the title track! This special edition double vinyl album is pressed on clear vinyl and housed in a gatefold cover.
