Alice In Chains detail Rainier Fog film project Black Antenna

Alice In Chains are sharing details of a new film project inspired by their latest album, “Rainier Fog.”

Produced and directed by Adam Mason, “Black Antenna” is a 90-minute science-fiction movie which will be rolled out in ten episodic segments/videos beginning at the start of 2019, with each clip set to a different song from the record.

"I'm a long-time fan of the band," says Mason. "And this was an opportunity to do something fresh and inspiring from an indie filmmaking side. The sound and vision between album and film are closely intertwined - it was a brilliant synergy that led to a really unique project."

"We've always toyed with the idea of creating videos for every song on one of our albums," adds drummer Sean Kinney. "Not only did we do that for Rainier Fog, it got totally out of hand and we made a whole goddamn movie. Everything that will be seen in the videos will be footage from 'Black Antenna' to preface the complete film's release."

Alice In Chains are streaming a video preview of the “Black Antenna” project ahead of its launch next month.

Recorded with producer Nick Raskulinecz at studios in Seattle, Nashville and Los Angeles, “Rainier Fog” debuted at No. 12 on the US Billboard 200 this fall.

The project has been nominated for Best Rock Album honors at the upcoming 61st Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.

Alice In Chains’ sixth record is a Best Rock Album finalist at the annual event, where it will compete against Fall Out Boy’s “Mania”, ”Prequelle” by Ghost, Greta Van Fleet’s “From The Fires”, and “Pacific Daydream” by Weezer.

The 61st annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on the CBS-TV Network from the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday, February 10 at 8pm ET.
