Alice in Chains Unveil Music Videos for ‘Voices’ + ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’
Alice in Chains have just debuted two new music videos from the group’s mainstream rock-salvaging album ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.’ Along with a clip for the record’s title track, the legendary band has unveiled a video for ‘Voices,’ as well.
2013 has been a monster year for Alice in Chains. The act absolutely crushed fans with the new tracks ‘Hollow’ and ‘Stone’ before Alice in Chains’ fifth studio album was even released. After ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ received mostly positive reviews, the song ‘Voices,’ a decidedly softer single, was officially put out in August and now is accompanied by its own music video (watch above).
Accompanying the haunting melodies of ‘Voices,’ pushed further by a vocal structure led by Jerry Cantrell, comes an equally haunting music video. Alice in Chains perform the song in a room illuminated by chandeliers and wayward light bulbs while on the outside, the lyrics sung by Cantrell and William DuVall occupy a somewhat bleak cityscape through neon letters.
The title track for ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ also boasts a powerful video, more than worthy of the heavy MTV rotation Alice in Chains received in the early ’90s. ‘The Devil Puts Dinosaurs Here’ explores the indoctrination of children through television, and more directly, religion. Ironically, fans can no longer be affected by this music video through television, as pregnant teens and disastrous award shows have polluted the MTV airwaves for quite some time. However, we can rest assured that Beavis and Butthead would give ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ four thumbs up.
