Jerry Cantrell gets ready to hit the road, the iconic singer, songwriter, guitarist, and Alice In Chains co-founder Jerry Cantrell today releases the animated video for “Siren Song”, off of his most recent album Brighten.
Bloody Disgusting exclusively premiered the new video saying, “The new animated video, directed and animated by Nate Merritt, shows a western-themed fantasy world that could be a trip through the mind of the songwriter but can also be interpreted by the viewer as a metaphor for life’s challenges: work, love, and loss mixed with the beauty of a life well-lived. Lots of easter eggs for Jerry fans but also fun and haunting video for the song itself, rife with wildlife, wilderness, and wandering travelers.”
Jerry begins his North American tour in support of his new LP, Brighten, released late last year. The tour kicks off next week at the Palace Theater in St. Paul, MN on March 24, 2022 and winds its way around North America hitting major cities such as Toronto, CN, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, NYC, Philadelphia, Seattle and Los Angeles to name a few. See full tour routing below.
Tickets for the Brighten Tour are available via Jerry’s website, through Ticketmaster and wherever tickets are sold. Check local venues.
Jerry’s touring band for this tour includes: Tyler Bates (Guitar), Greg Puciato (Backing Vocals), Gil Sharone (Drums), George Adrian (Bass), Michael Rozon (Pedal Steel) and Jason Achilles (keys). The set will encompass songs from Brighten along with favorite hits from his catalog.
Jerry spent most of late 2021 celebrating the release of Brighten, including performing an intimate showcase of the songs at “An Evening With Jerry Cantrell” at the Grammy Museum in LA. Watch the live performance of “Brighten” here and stream here.
