    Jerry Cantrell Reroutes His Degradation Trip, Plans Tour

    Former Alice in Chains guitarist's second solo album to be reissued as double LP.

    Expanded director's cuts have been a home video staple for a while, and now Jerry Cantrell is applying the same pure-vision principle to albums.
    The former Alice in Chains guitarist's latest, Degradation Trip, will be reissued
    November 19 as a double album — the way Cantrell originally intended, according to a Roadrunner spokesperson.
    Unlike some "expanded reissues," the retooled Degredation Trip, Cantrell's second solo album, isn't simply the original with some bonus material tacked onto the end. The new tracks featured on Degradation Trip Volumes 1 & 2 were recorded late last year during the same sessions as songs that made the first cut, and the revised track list incorporates the new tunes, rather than treating them as an amendment. Together, the 25 tracks take listeners on a more detailed journey into Cantrell's twisted psyche.
    Track 25
    "I went through a lot, and I had to deal with a lot," he said of his experiences that led to Degradation Trip, not the least of which was witnessing his friend and former bandmate Layne Staley downwardly spiral into a drug addition that ultimately killed him in April (see "Layne Staley, Alice In Chains Singer, Dead At 34"). "It's funny, every record is a different situation, and [the amount of work] that I put into this record is certainly a first for me. It feels really good that it's come around and it came out the way that I wanted it to."
    Meanwhile, "Angel Eyes," the second single from Degredation Trip, has begun to surface at radio. The gentle, melodic song is to AIC's "No Excuses" as Degradation's first single, the ominous "Anger Rising," was to "Again," from AIC's eponymous 1995 LP.
    Having completed his stint opening for Creed and Nickelback, Cantrell will embark on a headlining tour beginning October 9 in Corpus Christi, Texas. Five weeks of dates are confirmed, with additions forthcoming, according to Cantrell's spokesperson. Comes With the Fall, Mad At Gravity and Diesel will serve as openers.
    Track list for Degradation Trip Volumes 1 & 2:
    Disc 1:

    * "Psychotic Break"
    * "Bargain Basement Howard Hughes"
    * "Owned"
    * "Angel Eyes"
    * "Solitude"

    * "Hellbound"
    * "Spiderbite"
    * "Profalse Idol"
    * "Feel the Void"
    * "Locked On"
    * "Gone"
    Disc 2:

    * "Castaway"
    * "Chemical Tribe"
    * "What It Takes"
    * "Dying Inside"
    * "Siddhartha"
    * "Hurts Don't It?"
    * "She Was My Girl"
    * "Pig Charmer"
    * "Anger Rising"
    * "S.O.S."
    * "Give It a Name"

    Think you mean 2CD, not double LP, SO unless technology can fit 35-40 minutes a side on a record.

    Pisses me off that I already spent $$$ to buy it when it came out Too bad they don't offer a partial refund or something--guess it's off to the used CD store to trade it in.

    It's still a damn good album, now we get 2 of 'em
