“We’re excited about this album,” vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell recently told Rolling Stone“We made a record that’s completely different from anything we ever did. You see growth and that the band is moving ahead in new territory that we haven’t been to before, but we haven’t lost our identity.”

Album track listing is as follows:

“Pretty Done”
