Wolfgang Van Halen records bass parts for new Tremonti album

Wolfgang Van Halen has finished recording his bass parts for the forthcoming sophomore album by Alter Bridge side project Tremonti.

“All 20 songs of Bass Are done on the tremonti 2 album with the gifted @wolfvanhalen !,” writes producer Michael Baskette. “Such a pleasure to record when you are working with so much talent:) Looking forward to guitars with @markttremonti starting this weekend and with @ericcfriedman !”

“20 songs in 5 days,” tweeted Van Halen. “That's a lot of notes... Bass tracking is officially complete.”

The band, led by guitarist Mark Tremonti, have scheduled a "Tremonti II" album listening party and live performance for January 31, 2015 in Orlando, Florida.

Wolfgang joined the group at the start of their fall 2012 tour – on 24 hours notice – to fill in on bass for the absent Brian Marshall, who had to pull out for undisclosed personal reasons.

The opportunity arose when Van Halen’s “A Different Kind Of Truth” tour went on hiatus following Eddie’s surgery for a severe bout of Diverticulitis.

Tremonti issued their debut album, “All I Was”, in 2012.
