Alter Bridge - Fortress - Drops October 8th (USA)

ALTER BRIDGE RETURN WITH LONG-AWAITED NEW ALBUM FORTRESS SLATED FOR RELEASE ON OCTOBER 8th  

Only Confirmed US Show in 2013 Scheduled For October 4th at the House Of Blues in Orlando, FL 

(July 24, 2013 – New York, NY) It has been three years since Alter Bridge’s last studio album, ABIII, was released in the US, but it is clear their fans have been waiting for them to return.  Now the rock juggernaut band comprised of Myles Kennedy on vocals, Mark Tremonti on guitar, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums return with their fourth album, Fortress slated for release on October 8th via EMI Label Services.  The latest record builds upon the sound that Alter Bridge has been known for with their uncompromised vocal melodies, untouchable dueling guitar work and pounding rhythm section.  The album was produced by long-time Alter Bridge producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, known for his work with Falling In Reverse, Story Of The Year and Incubus to name a few. 

“When we started pre-production on this album, we pushed ourselves harder and further than we ever have previously in order to make the most out of every individual arrangement.  We wanted this album to be our most unpredictable and exciting one yet.  From the early feedback we have received, it looks like we have achieved what we set out to do,” exclaims Tremonti. 

From the opening acoustic guitar work on “Cry Of Achilles” through the other 12 songs on Fortress, it is clear Alter Bridge are back to reclaim their place as one of hard rock’s marquee bands.  The band showcases some of their heaviest material ever in tracks like “Bleed It Dry” and “Farther Than The Sun,” but also shows their signature softer side with songs like “All Ends Well” and the epic title track “Fortress.”  Fortress is is full of unapologetic, searing hard rock that Alter Bridge has come to be synonymous with around the globe. 

Alter Bridge recently announced their only US show in 2013 in Orlando, FL on October 4th at the House of Blues.  Tickets for this show will go on-sale on Friday, July 26 and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com.  The band then heads over to Europe where they will begin an extensive headlining world tour that will run from October 16th through November 16 and will feature Shinedown and Halestorm joining the band on select dates.  Alter Bridge will also make a triumphant return to Wembley Arena in London on October 18th, a venue they sold out on ABIII and documented with the CD/DVD, Alter Bridge Live At Wembley.  

Alter Bridge burst onto the music scene in 2004 with the release of their gold-selling debut, One Day Remains.  In 2007, the band released Blackbird, the album that elevated the band’s profile worldwide.  The epic solo in the title track “Blackbird” was voted “Greatest Guitar Solo Of All Time” by Guitarist Magazine.  ABIII was released in 2010 and the single “Isolation” gave the band their first #1 single.  Alter Bridge has appeared on The Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live and their music has been used by the WWE, Major League Baseball and NASCAR to name a few.  When Alter Bridge is on hiatus, singer Myles Kennedy can be found fronting Slash’s band, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.  Guitarist Mark Tremonti recently released his fist solo project All I Was that found Wolfgang Van Halen playing bass with Mark on the road. Scott Phillips formed Projected with John Connolly and Vinnie Hornsby of Sevendust and released their debut in 2012.

I pre-ordered the album and it has been delivered this morning (it was released on the 30th Sept in the UK) and I had heard the album before by streaming it online and I must admit, the more you listen to this album the better it gets!

My favourite album has always been Blackbird but I must say, this album surpasses it in my opinion (probably cause it's all i've been listening to) every song is spot on in reference to harmonies, melody, guitar playing etc...

The lyrics are also spectacular, as always, and I am yet to find a song from Alter Bridge that I dislike... I will be seeing you guys on the 16th in Nottingham & I cannot contain my excitement; the range of Myles Kennedy's voice matches the best rock vocalist of all time; Freddie Mercury and of course as you'd know the solo in Blackbird got voted the best of all time, with stats like that it's clear that Alter Bridge are so overrated and deserve a wider fanbase but I hope that you keep sticking to the genre you're in now and don't change a thing cause in my eyes, you're the best band I have come across & I hope nothing changes!

I Heard the new single. I love the 1st 3 albums so much, I was kinda scared about hearing the new stuff because with bands I like there always seems to be that point where the music turns a corner and just isn't as good. But, judging by that one track you guys have done it again! It's been stuck in my head for days, I love it! I love the quick up-tempo sound of it. I do hope there is some darker melodic moments as well along the lines of ABIII though. (ABIII has moved its way into my personal GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME cacagory!!! Not a lot of bands/albums qualify!) I can't wait to hear the rest of the album. I will be purchasing it as soon as it's available. Here's an idea for a US tour, you guys with Stone Sour would be killer!

I'm SOOOO looking forward to your new album! Im 43 years old & grew up listening to hard rock / metal. In the 80s when I was a teen it was Maiden & Priest, to Megadeth & Slayer I loved it all. The 90s was great as well with Alice in Chains & Nirvana, to Soundgarden & Stone Temple Pilots. The 2000s, for me however there didn't seem to have as many important bands. By then, most of the rock stations had disappeared & the focas on "music" seemed to be pushed to the backburner for the pop & rap garbage.

But we, the hard rock faithful would always find a station that would play stuff that was good & new. I'd heard Alter Bridge songs on the radio thru the years & always liked every song I heard, but being older strapped with kids & bills I kinda quit buying music & such. But a bud of mine sent me a proshot concert from Germany I think. I watched it & loved the show. Miles' voice was spot on & the band was perfect! I watched it with my son & he was impressed as well. So the next day he bought all 3 CDs off Itunes. He put them on my ipod for me & I have been addicted ever since! (the power of unofficial performances can really work for ya sometimes!)

ABIII has special meaning for me. My daughter, who once was on the right track & on her way to collage, has went down the wrong path. She is/was a smart girl & knew better about a lot of things but chose a rocky road. Every song about the struggle of the character seemed like it was written about her. On top of the connection I felt, the musicianship, song writing is fantastic!

I have since went out & bought all 3 CDs (us old schoolers like a hard disc lol!) & live at Wembley, FANTASTIC GUYS! What a show! I WILL be buying this as soon as it's available! Thank you guys sooo much for doing REAL music with heart & emotion in a time when there is so much garbage out there! Ron
