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.”
