Alter Bridge 2019

Alter Bridge burst onto the music scene in 2004 with the release of their gold-selling debut, One Day Remains and for over 15 years has been a band known for blurring the line between hard rock and heavy metal.

Recorded in a way never done before, the new album Walk The Sky was born from complete song ideas created by Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti. These songs would then be worked on by the entire band to create the fourteen songs that would make the listening experience it is. This varies from the band’s previous method going back to their sophomore release Blackbird where Kennedy and Tremonti would combine individual ideas and riffs alongside producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette to form some of the band’s most revered songs.

From the opening vocal melody on One Life to the moving finale of Dying Light, Alter Bridge have created a formidable addition to their music catalog. Songs like Godspeed, Native Son and Walking On The Sky are sure to be early additions to the live set. Forever Falling also marks a lead vocal return from Mark Tremonti with Myles Kennedy taking the chorus as done previously on the Fortress favorite Waters Rising.

The new album is now available for pre-order HERE.

Recently, Alter Bridge announced the VICTORIOUS SKY TOUR beginning in September that will take them throughout the United States co-headlining alongside Skillet with special guest Dirty Honey opening. The European headline tour billed as the WALK THE SKY TOUR is scheduled for November and December and will feature Shinedown, Sevendust and The Raven Age. The band has also been announced as part of the 2020 sailing of Shiprocked.
