Alter Bridge to Tour This December
Fri, 05 Nov 2010 13:10:07
Alter Bridge have lined up a series of headline dates in support of their forthcoming third album, the simplistically titled AB III, which will widely available on November 9, 2010 on Alter Bridge Recordings via EMI. The band features members of Creed, in case you forgot.
That’s right -- Alter Bridge consists of Grammy Award winning guitarist, Mark Tremonti (Creed), frontman Myles Kennedy (lead vocalist for Slash's solo touring band and Mayfield Four) and former Creed members, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips. AB III finds the guys picking up exactly where they left off on their road to rock 'n' roll domination.
AB III showcases its fair share of explosive tunes from the psychedelic pummeling of "Slip to the Void" to the careening chaos of "Ghosts of Days Gone By." However, Alter Bridge make room for a few heart-wrenching ballads as well, including the undeniably epic "Wonderful Life."
There's a pronounced urgency to the album that the band will no doubt conjure on stage. Kennedy commented in a statement: "This album definitely captures a moment in time for us. It's certainly a snapshot of where we were earlier in this year, and it's meant to be played loud." Crank it.
You can hear Alter Bridge live and loud, and in the flesh, on the following confirmed tour dates.
