Alter Bridge announce new album and tour

Alter Bridge will release a new album, “Fortress,” this fall and embark on a European tour to support the project.

Due October 8, “Fortress” is the band’s fourth studio album and first since 2010’s “ABIII.”

The project was produced by long-time Alter Bridge producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Falling In Reverse, Story Of The Year, Incubus).

“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,” says guitarist Mark Tremonti. “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.”

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 this Friday, July 26 and can be purchased at

The band will then head 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.

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.
