Alice in Chains guitarist/vocalist Jerry Cantrell will embark on a solo tour of North America soon. The outing begins on March 24 and comes in support of his new solo album, Brighten, which marked Cantrell’s first such release since 2002’s Degradation Trip.

On Wednesday, Cantrell debuted an animated music video for “Siren Song”:

Said Cantrell of the video in a statement:

“I had a great time working with the very talented Nate Merritt and Josh Richman on this video to bring ‘Siren Song’ to life through animation. Nate’s imagery is beautiful and impactful, a perfect visual companion to the music that tells the story I started out with, and travels far beyond it. A true collaborative effort, great work guys.”

Brighten finds Cantrell accompanied in the studio by a number of special guest musician pals, among them Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses, Greg Puciato (vocals/guitar), Tyler Bates (bass), Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums), Gil Sharone (drums), Vincent Jones (piano) and more.

Some of those musicians will accompany Cantrell on the road; his band for the gigs will feature Tyler Bates (guitar), Greg Puciato (backing vocals), Gil Sharone (drums), George Adrian (bass), Michael Rozon (pedal steel) and Jason Achilles (keys).

A news release says the sets will feature songs from Brighten alongside “favorite hits” from his back catalog, which of course probably means a few choice Alice in Chains songs.
