After spending a good portion of the year in the studio recording the upcoming Alice in Chains album, singer-guitarist Jerry Cantrell is in the mood to get out and play. Cantrell was a surprise guest of the Walking Papers during their performance at the Crocodile Café in Seattle Saturday night (Dec. 15).

Seattle station KISW 99.9 FM reports that Cantrell joined the band, which features Duff McKagan, the Missionary Position’s Jeff Angell and Ben Anderson, and former Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin, for two songs during their performance. Cantrell rocked guitar on ‘Your Secret Is Safe With Me’ (which can be seen below) and ‘Two Tickets.’

Walking Papers released their debut disc back in October. It features a guest appearance from another Seattle favorite — Pearl Jam‘s Mike McCready — lending some guitar assistance.

As for the upcoming Alice in Chains disc, Cantrell told Revolver (excerpted by Grunge Report) that the as-yet-untitled album stays true to form. He explained, “I don’t think you’ll be surprised by anything you hear. It’s us. It’s also really unique. It’s got all the elements of any record we’ve put out, but it’s unlike any record we’ve put out. Basically, it’s the next chapter in the Alice in Chains book, and it’s going to be a big one.”

Though a release date and title have yet to be announced for the new Alice in Chains record, the new song ‘Hollow‘ just arrived, complete with a fan-generated lyric video.
