As we reported in the Newswire last week, Jerry Cantrell -- guitarist, vocalist and creative mastermind behind the legendary rock band Alice In Chains -- has officially signed to Roadrunner Records. Cantrell played a major role in formulating Alice's signature sound and continues to build upon this sound in his solo work.

After touring in support of his first post - AIC solo effort, Boggy Depot, Cantrell went into the studio with trusted friends and musicians, Robert Trujillo (Suicidal Tendencies, Ozzy Osbourne) and Mike Bordin (Faith No More, Ozzy Osbourne) to record Degradation Trip. "It sounds unlike any other record I have ever done. It's is probably one of the heaviest records I have put out including Alice," says Jerry. The album took close to 2 years to record.

Degradation Trip was the last record to be recorded in the "haunted" studios of A&M in Los Angeles, CA. Jerry Cantrell and Jeff Tomei (Smashing Pumpkins, Matchbox Twenty, Soul Asylum, Collective Soul) produced this monumental effort. "Jerry's new material picks up right where Alice In Chains left off. This is the style of music he was born to write and play - and the sound that the fans have been craving from him. The new material sounds fresh yet instantly familiar," Monte Conner - VP of A&R for Roadrunner Records enthuses. "It's not every day that you get to work with a musician and songwriter of Jerry's caliber. He has written some of my favorite songs - modern classics that people will still be listening to 30 years from now. How many musicians can you say that about these days?"

Last week in Calgary and Edmonton, Canada Jerry met up with labelmates Nickelback and performed the Alice in Chains classic, "It Ain't Like That" from the AIC 1990 release, Facelift. Both nights Cantrell took the stage to the sound of deafening chants of "Jerry, Jerry, Jerry". The exclusive live performance at Edmonton's Sky Reach Centre will be featured on Nickelback's upcoming DVD release.

The performance buck does not stop in Canada. The stage has been set at Stubb's BBQ in Austin, TX on March 16th for Jerry Cantrell to give fans old and a new a preview of the material that will appear on his upcoming Roadrunner release, Degradation Trip. The album is set for release in the summer of 2002.
