Alice in Chains is one of my favorite bands. After Layne Staley passed, I didn’t think they could press on, but they did with Wiliam Duvall and they still sound excellent. Alice In Chains’ catalog is so diverse and well done. Thankfully, their EP “Jar of Flies” is getting reissued on March 22nd. We’re going to take a look at 5 reasons you should pick up the reissue of Jar of Flies by Alice in Chains.
Alice in Chains knows how to turn it up and get heavy, dark, and rockin’. But on Jar of Flies, they proved they weren’t a one-trick pony. The EP showed their acoustic side and it was a hit. Jar of Flies became the first EP to top the Billboard 200 album chart. That’s a pretty impressive feat.
What are the options?
What we’re looking at for the reissues of this album are various packages to choose from. There’s a standard black 12-inch vinyl available from all retailers. Plus, the band’s official website offers tri-colored vinyl, a cassette, and a clear variant with “flies” embedded in the vinyl. And if that wasn’t enough for you, there’s a deluxe box set.
The deluxe version features the following:
The EP on tri-colored vinyl
a logo-embossed jar with touch-activated red LED and faux flies
a 60-page hardcover book a double-sided poster
If you’re a fan of AIC, there’s a bunch to choose from. To go along with celebrating the 30th anniversary of the EP, there’s also exclusive merch coming out as well. You can get limited-edition clothing, a poker set, and even a skate deck.
Besides Alice in Chains showing off their “Lighter” side, this album has it all- emotion, great playing, and beautiful singing. The band showed that they could do something like this on their EP SAP and “Jar of Flies” takes it to another level.
