William DuVall (Alice in Chains) Releasing All-Acoustic Debut Solo Album in October

Rock Cellar Magazine

You may know William DuVall as the rhythm guitarist and vocalist for Alice in Chains, a role he’s held since taking over for the departed Layne Staley in 2006 — but he’s always had several other projects going on, too.

On October 4, he’ll add “solo artist” to the mix for the first time when he releases his debut solo album, One Alone. The news was revealed recently and came with a music video for “‘Til the Light Guides Me Home,” depicting DuVall walking around town with his guitar:

The album is an entirely acoustic affair, which is obviously a stark contrast with what he’s done with Alice in Chains, as the alt/grunge band led by DuVall and Jerry Cantrell has long been known for its sludgy, buzzsaw guitar riffs.

Here’s the album’s track listing:

  1. “‘Til The Light Guides Me Home”
  2. “The Veil Of All My Fears”
  3. “The 3 Wishes”
  4. “Strung Out On A Dream”
  5. “White Hot”
  6. “Still Got A Hold On My Heart”
  7. “Smoke And Mirrors”
  8. “So Cruel”
  9. “Chains Around My Heart”
  10. “No Need To Wonder”
