It's been three years since the last Alter Bridge studio record, ABIII was released in the US, but it is clear their fans have been waiting for them to return. Now the band comprised of Myles Kennedy (vocals), Mark Tremonti (guitar), Brian Marshall (bass) and Scott Phillips (drums) return with their fourth album, Fortress slated for release on Rocktober 8th.
The record was produced by long-time Alter Bridge producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, known for his work with Incubus, Falling In Reverse and Story Of The Year.
Alter Bridge recently announced their only US show in 2013 in Orlando, Florida on Rocktober 4th at the House of Blues. The band then heads over to Europe where they will begin an extensive headlining world tour that will run from Rocktober 16 through November 16 and will feature Shinedown and Halestorm joining the band on select dates. The band will also make a triumphant return to Wembley Arena in London on Rocktober 18th, a venue they sold out on ABIII and documented with the CD/DVD, Alter Bridge Live At Wembley.
