According to The Pulse Of Radio, Alter Bridge and Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti‘s first solo single, You Waste Your Time, has jumped straight up to Number 10 on the iTunes Rock Singles chart shortly after being released. Tremonti said in a statement, “I am overwhelmed by the positive response the song has already received. I never imagined it would hit the Top 10 so quickly and that is a testament to the amazing fans I have. I couldn’t have gotten anywhere in my career without them and want to thank each and every one of them for their support. I can’t wait until they hear the rest of it.”
You Waste Your Time is taken from Tremonti‘s debut solo album, All I Was, which is due for release on July 10 via Fret 12 Records, a company Mark started with his brother, Daniel Tremonti, and Tom Stanley.
With two bands and a solo career, The Pulse Of Radio asked Tremontihow he knows which project the songs he writes are best suited for. “I’ve just gotten this filter, this intuition that tells me what songs go to which band, and with my solo stuff, the rhythm section is so different from the other bands, I think it really stands apart,” he said. “I think it’s a little more aggressive than both the other bands, but you just have to hear it, I guess.”
Tremonti has a performance video in the works for You Waste Your Time.
His solo band, also billed Tremonti, features Alter Bridge and Creed bassist Brian Marshall in the lineup along with guitarist Eric Friedman and drummer Garrett Whitlock.
