Veteran Seattle rockers Alice In Chains' sixth album, "Rainier Fog", has debuted at No. 12 on the US Billboard 200, according to the music industry magazine.
Recorded with producer Nick Raskulinecz at studios in Seattle, Nashville and Los Angeles, the project delivered opening week sales of 31,000 equivalent album units - including 29,000 in traditional album sales - according to Nielsen Music.
"Rainier Fog" also debuts at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Rock Albums, Alternative Albums and Hard Rock Albums charts, marking the second time the band has topped all three. The last time, for 2013's "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here."
"Rainier Fog" marks the group's third album with singer William DuVall, who was brought into the fold in 2006 when the Seattle outfit regrouped following an extended hiatus after the 2002 passing of Layne Staley.
