Alter Bridge done recording new album
Finally! A post where I can mention Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips and it’s not about Creed! It’s a good day.
The band called Alter Bridge which features Tremonti, Marshall and Phillips together with singer Myles Kennedy have finished recording their third album and are already hyping it up (via ). The band released a statement talking about the recording process.
We are pleased to inform you that the recording of our third album has been completed. It was an amazing journey and we believe that the songs that we have created are our most inspired and dynamic work to date.
We all worked very hard on these songs, over a long period of time, and we are all fiercely proud of what we have recorded.
The band has also said that this new album is already better than their previous record, Blackbird, which was released in 2007.
We have played some of the rough mixes of the songs to a few of our ‘trusted ears’ and they are telling us that we have absolutely topped the Blackbird album. The true test will come when we get to hear what all you fans think and we are very much looking forward to that day.
The next step in the process will be mixing, which will begin in mid-April, in New York. The mixing will probably take a few weeks and once that is finished, we will begin the difficult task of deciding which songs will make the album. The goal is to release the album in September, before our planned October tour in Europe that will start in the U.K.
I’ve always been a fan of Alter Bridge. Primarily because the members of Creed left the douchenozzle that is Scott Stapp and teamed up with a guy who can actually sing. So if the album does come out this fall, I’ll be sure to head over to my record store and grab a copy…while laughing at all the Creed records in the clearance bins.
