While we patiently await final word on Alice in Chains' upcoming studio album, the band have just announced their third U.S. tour leg this year, with dates booked in October to promote the forthcoming disc.

The trek starts on Oct. 14 with the band's headlining set at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento and continues across the Southwest into the Southeastern U.S., eventually wrapping Oct. 28 in Hollywood, Fla. All the newly announced dates are listed below and tickets will go on sale this Friday (June 22) at 10 AM local time. Stay tuned to Alice in Chains' website for ticketing details.

Alice in Chains have already shared the first song from the upcoming disc. You can check out "The One You Know" right here. Their forthcoming disc will be the band's third with co-vocalist William DuVall in the fold.

Speaking recently with Eddie Trunk, co-vocalist Jerry Cantrell said that the band's original goal upon reuniting was to celebrate the music, but after that goal was achieved, it "felt right" to move on with DuVall in the band.

“William was willing to take on that challenge, and we never looked at it as a part of somebody is replaceable, because Layne Staley is not replaceable, Mike Starr is not replaceable," Cantrell stated. "Their period of time with us in the band, on those records is indelible and completely unique. When Mike [Inez] joined the band and when William joined the band, those were new eras and important additions, and equally as important."
