Hello Alter Bridge Nation,
This just in from Roadrunner UK…
Alter Bridge’s highly anticipated third album AB III, which is set for a release on October 11th in the UK, is now streaming in full exclusively over at http://www.nme.com and the album, which has already been cited as an ‘album of the year contender’ in Total Guitar’s 5/5 review is well worth checking out!!!!
AB III is an incredibly intense and dynamic album proving Alter Bridge continues to grow and evolve with each recording. “We went into the process of putting the record together with a lot of confidence,” guitarist Mark Tremonti reveals, “but we didn’t go into it looking to be commercial, or to have radio singles. We just wanted this to be an album that pleased us artistically, through and through.”
The band have also evolved lyrically as well as musically, “This record is definitely a departure from the last two albums in terms of its subject matter.” says vocalist Myles Kennedy, “It touches on the thoughts and emotions of someone who has come to question everything that was once regarded as an absolute truth. It’s the realization that everything you once believed in might not exist.”
