Alice In Chains have announced that their new album, The Devil Put the Dinosaurs Here, will be released in May.

The album, which was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones), is the followup to 2009's Black Gives Way to Blue, which earned two Grammy nominations and saw the band headlining a sold-out international tour that wrapped up at Madison Square Garden.

The band have several 2013 dates lined up, and you can see them below.
