Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy has signed with Austria’s Napalm Records for the release of his debut solo album, “Year Of The Tiger”. The 12-song effort was helmed by Alter Bridge‘s longtime producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette and will arrive in the spring.

Myles states: “I’m excited to announce I’m teaming up with Napalm Records for the release of my first solo record, ‘Year Of The Tiger’. This record is something I’ve always wanted to make and I’m grateful to Napalm for believing in me enough to get behind it.”

“Year Of The Tiger” was described by Kennedy in a recent interview with Metal Wani as “probably the closest thing to a full-on concept record that I’ve ever written. I mean, the story is congruent throughout the entire… It basically tells a story from start to finish, and it documents when my father passed away when I was a kid and basically what happened after that with my mom, my brother and I — it tells that story,” he said. “So it’s a full-on concept from start to finish.” Continue reading »

Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy will release a 12-song solo album, “Year Of The Tiger”, in 2018. The effort was helmed by Alter Bridge‘s longtime producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette and was described by Kennedy in a recent interview with Metal Wani as “probably the closest thing to a full-on concept record that I’ve ever written. I mean, the story is congruent throughout the entire… It basically tells a story from start to finish, and it documents when my father passed away when I was a kid and basically what happened after that with my mom, my brother and I — it tells that story,” he said. “So it’s a full-on concept from start to finish.”

“Year Of The Tiger” is actually the second solo album Kennedy recorded, having previously completed a full-length record’s worth of material over a several-year period beginning in 2009. Although that album was mixed in early 2016, Myles “decided not to move forward” with the project because “I’m kind of a firm believer that songs can have a shelf life with an artist,” he told Metal Wani. “And what happened was I’d been chipping away at the solo record for quite a while when I had time. Obviously, I was very busy playing with Alter Bridge and touring with that, but in my spare time, I was chipping away at this record, so when I actually documented it and finished it, I had to step back and look at it with a fresh perspective and say, ‘You know what? You’ve gotta be honest with yourself as a writer. Continue reading »

Fans of Alter Bridge will be happy to hear that the group has announced a new tour! The band will be gigging through America this November and December, as they hit up some great venues across the country. Their trek will also feature All That Remains, who will bring a good mix of straight metal to things on the upcoming tour.

Alter Bridge’s live show has been making some waves as of late. Recently the group released their new “Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities” collection, showcasing a recent performance at the legendary London venue. The 19-song set demonstrated the intensity and excitement the guys bring to each live performance, and why they’ve been such an enduring act after all these years.

All That Remains have been keeping active these past couple of months as well. Back in August, they released their cover for Garth Brooks’ ‘The Thunder Rolls.’ It’s all a part of Phil Labonte‘s plan to never let All That Remains become formulaic, as he said in our recent interview with him. “That’s something that I don’t want to happen with All That Remains. I don’t want to be a formula band, I don’t want people to think that they know what the next All That Remains album is gonna sound like,” explained the vocalist. Continue reading »
