Tremonti stream new song As Silence Becomes Me

Tremonti are streaming the track “As Silence Becomes Me” as the latest preview to the June 8 release of their fourth album, “A Dying Machine.”

The Alter Bridge offshoot’s first concept album tells the story of humans and fabricated beings trying to co-exist at the turn of the next century.

“I’ve never in my entire career, ever wanted to do a concept record or ever thought it was something that I could wrap my head around; it was never something that was on my radar,” frontman Mark Tremonti tells Metal Wani. “I’ve been a songwriter since I was eleven trying to tinker around writing tunes and it was never something that I wanted to do but, the only record I can really remember owning that were concept records were my King Diamond albums, and it just, it wasn’t something where I ever sought out to do it.

“I just wrote the song A Dying Machine and it fell on my lap. I was like, I really love how I feel in the moment of this song and this story and I don’t wanna lose that. I wanna continue it; maybe it could be three or four songs that could have that theme and the rest is different. But then I got so far deep into it I was like, ‘you know what, if we’re gonna do this, let’s do it the whole way’ and I finished writing … even the songs that were written before A Dying Machine that went on this album I had to retrofit the lyrics to make them fit as closely as possible to the storyline and by the end I was like, ‘I gotta do this in long form and tell the whole story with the novel.”

The rocker is working on turning the tale into a full-length work of fiction with the help of American author John Shirley.

Tremonti will launch “A Dying Machine” on a summer tour of Europe that will begin with an appearance at the Firenze Rocks festival in Florence, Italy on June 17 followed by headline dates starting in Munich, Germany the next day.
