Alice In Chains announce Facelift 30th anniversary packages

Alice in Chains will release a series of 30th anniversary reissues of its debut album, “Facelift.”

The 1990 project, which introduced the signature sound of the Seattle band, featured instant classics like “Man In The Box”, “Bleed The Freak” and “Sea Of Sorrow."

“Facelift” peaked at No. 42 on the US Billboard 200 and went on to sell more than 2 million copies, while “Man In The Box” was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal in 1992.

The project will see a 2LP black vinyl edition issued on November 13, while a deluxe box set will be available on January 29, 2021.

The expanded package features an acrylic deluxe box with gel transparencies, the remastered album on 2 LP picture disc vinyl, an exclusive cassette, custom hard cover photo book, folded two-sided poster, 12″ slipmat, sticker sheet, tour laminate and four art prints.

Alice In Chains will be honored with a Founders Award by the Museum Of Pop Culture during its annual fundraising event on December 1.

The Seattle nonprofit institution is recognizing the work of the group, which formed in 1987 and went on to sell more than 30 million records worldwide.
