Tickets to see rock band Alice in Chains in Augusta on May 1 are on sale now.

Alice in Chains, together since the late ’80s and labeled as a heavy metal or an alternative group, will stop by the Bell Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. as part of their U.S. tour.

Tickets are $39.50 and $49.50 for the pit and can be purchased online at www.georgialinatix.com, by calling 1-877-4AUGTIX or by visiting the Champion’s Box Office at the James Brown Arena.

Recently, the band’s released a video for its latest track “Hollow.”

Fans can expect a new CD from the band later this spring, produced by Nick Raskulinecz. Raskulinecz, known for working with the Foo Fighters and Deftones, produced Alice in Chains’ 2009’s CD “Black Gives Way to Blue,” its comeback CD after more than a decade of being out of the studio.

In April 2002, the band lost its singer Lance Staley, who passed away primarily because of his drug addiction. The song “Black Gives Way to Blue” was written in his honor. Atlanta musician William DuVall later joined the band and lends his voice to the 2009 album.

After its Augusta performance, the group will head up to Virginia. The tour will run until September.

The Bell Auditorium is at 712 Telfair St.
