On “Year Of The Tiger”Kennedy embarks on his first venture as a solo artist by embracing musical elements and influences he hasn’t explored until this point in his career. His appreciation for the blues and acoustic based music can be heard throughout the 12-song concept record inspired by the loss of his father when he was a child.

“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.

Alter Bridge is expected to take most of 2018 off from the road while the bandmembers focus on other projects.

Writing for the follow-up to 2016’s “The Last Hero” will begin later this year, with tentative plans to release the effort in 2019.
