Alice in Chains' Jerry Cantrell says he and his bandmates are big fans of their Uproar Festival co-headliners, Jane's Addiction.  The guitarist says they've always admired Perry Farrell and company, adding that they were thoroughly impressed whenever the band would come through town in their early days. 

Cantrell says Jane's Addiction's first few albums are very important to him, while Alice in Chains drummer Sean Kinney notes that "there's nobody like them."  The two rockers - who are also gearing up for the release of Alice in Chains' new album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here on May 28th - say Jane's Addiction's participation in this year's traveling Uproar fest was a big reason they signed on.  Cantrell says they "wanted to go out with another really great band." 

The outing - which will also include Coheed and Cambria, Circa Survive and others - is scheduled to start August 9th in Scranton, Pennsylvania.  The full lineup and other details are available at
