New Stephen Gyllenhaal Film to Feature Never-Before-Heard Layne Staley Tracks
Grassroots, a Seattle-centric film from director Stephen Gyllenhaal, will feature two never-before-heard songs from deceased Alice in Chains frontman Layne Staley. The film stars Jason Biggs as the campaign manager for an alt-weekly music critic who suddenly decides to campaign for a highly competitive spot on the Seattle City Council.
Layne Staley passed away in 2002 after a long battle with drug addiction. He formed the iconic metal grunge group in Seattle back in 1987. Grassroots will be out June 22, but in the mean time check a trailer for the film below.
