Alice In Chains will receive the Founders Award from Seattle, WA's Museum of Pop Culture on December 1 virtually via Amazon Music’s Twitch Channel. Among the performers at the online show will be Metallica, Korn, Mastodon, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, and much more.
"It feels truly special to receive the MoPOP Founders Award in our home town of Seattle," said guitarist and vocalist Jerry Cantrell. "It’s also humbling to be joined by so many of our friends, peers and heroes to rock some AIC tunes. Music has the power to unite, heal and inspire. It is all of ours. Let’s continue to create and celebrate that which feeds the soul. Rawk on!"
"When we got to make our first record, I thought, great, we will be able to make one record, do our thing and hope for the best," added drummer Sean Kinney. "Now, 30 years later to get this award and still be touring and making music is the most amazing feeling. We are brothers with all of the craziness that goes with it. This is for Layne, Mike, and for all of us now. We can’t wait to get back out on the road once this hellish pandemic is behind us."
