Ryan and wife have fused their voices on a new song called “Empty Room.” It’s the first time they’ve officially collaborated, and it comes via a tour-only 7″ backed with what we’re gonna call Adams In Chains: Ryan’s cover of AiC’s Jar Of Flies (and Unplugged) standout “Nutshell” in all of its four-chord, Layne Staley heroin-stained/Jerry Cantrell searingly soloed glory.
