VIDEO: Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy talks new album Fortress & more

Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy is sharing his thoughts about the band’s new album, “Fortress”, in a new video released by the band.

“The essential elements were really the idea of pushing ourselves and breaking way from formulas that we knew were tried and true in the past,” Kennedy explains about the band’s goals for the album, due October 8. “I think it’s a certain amount of sonic adventure that we tried with ‘Fortress.’”

The singer also discusses his work with Alter Bridge and Slash, and more in the video below.

“Fortress” is the band’s fourth studio album and first since 2010’s “ABIII” was overseen by long-time Alter Bridge producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Falling In Reverse, Story Of The Year, Incubus).

The group recently released the video for the project’s lead single, “Addicted To Pain”; the clip was shot by award-winning director Dan Catullo.

Alter Bridge will play their only US show in 2013 in Orlando, FL this Friday, October 4 at the House of Blues, following which they will then head to Europe where they’ll begin an extensive headlining world tour; the first leg runs from October 16th through November 16 and will feature Shinedown and Halestorm on select dates.
