Alter Bridge offshoot Tremonti announces North American tour

Alter Bridge offshoot Tremonti have announced dates for a co-headlining tour of North America with Trivium.

The pair will launch the 2015 HardDrive Live Tour in Fort Lauderdale, FL on September 9 before hitting more than 30 cities across the continent.

Exclusive fan club pre-sales for both Tremonti and Trivium will be available starting Wednesday at MarkTremonti.com and Trivium.org.

Tickets for the general public will be available on Thursday via the usual outlets.

“We are really happy to be partnering up once again with HardDrive for our upcoming tour,” says Mark Tremonti. “We are equally as excited to tour with an awesome band as co-headliner. Our friends in Trivium!”

“We in Trivium are incredibly excited to be going on tour with Tremonti,” adds Trivium vocalist and guitarist, Matt Heafy. “It’s awesome to see two fellow metal and rock bands that are grown from metal, grown from the same bands, grown from the same hometown, to be able to go out and show the world our own brand of metal and show the world what we love to do and how we love to do it. We can’t wait to see everyone out there; we know it’s going to be a great time!”

Tremonti recently released their second album, “Cauterize”, the band’s first project with new bassist Wolfgang Van Halen.

The group have brought in Tanner Keegan to handle bass duties in Wolfgang’s absence due to a scheduling conflict with his namesake band Van Halen.

"I am still part of Tremonti and very excited for the release of Cauterize,” explains Wolfgang, “but unfortunately am unable to participate in the upcoming dates due to my prior commitment with Van Halen for the summer tour in support of the Tokyo Dome Live In Concert album.”

Van Halen’s tour wraps up in early October, which may make the bassist available for some of the fall tour with Tremonti.
