Alter BridgeThe wait is over for the U.S. fans of Alter Bridge as the pre-order for the band’s long-awaited fourth album, “Fortress”has gone live.

Due on October 8 via EMI Label Services“Fortress” is Alter Bridge‘s most aggressive record to date. From the opening acoustic guitar work on “Cry Of Achilles” to the closing riff of the epic title track, it is clear Alter Bridge are back to reclaim their place as one of hard rock’s standout acts. The album was helmed by longtime Alter Bridge producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, known for his work with Falling In Reverse, Story Of The Year and Incubus, to name a few. 

The debut single, “Addicted To Pain”, is currently impacting radio and is looking to continue the chart-topping success Alter Bridge has come to know around the world. The track has already received adds at WIIL in Chicago, WRTT in Philadelphia, WJJO in Madison and on SiriusXM‘s Octane channel. The band released a visualizer video on YouTube on August 7 so fans could hear the new single and that has been viewed over 250,000 times to date.

The official video for “Addicted To Pain” is being shot by award-winning director Dan Catullo and will be released worldwide in September.

Alter Bridge recently announced their only US show in 2013 in Orlando, Florida on October 4 at the House of Blues. Tickets for this show will go on sale on Friday, July 26 and can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com. The band then heads over to Europe where they will begin an extensive headlining world tour that will run from October 16 through November 16 and will feature Shinedown and Halestorm joining the band on select dates. Alter Bridge will also make a triumphant return to Wembley Arena in London on October 18, a venue they sold out on “ABIII” and documented with the CD/DVD, “Alter Bridge Live At Wembley”.
