‘Mark Tremonti’ Says Several Themes Run Through New Album


Alter BridgeAlter Bridge will release its fourth studio album and first new disc in three years, “Fortress”, on October 8. Guitarist Mark Tremonti told The Pulse Of Radio that while there’s no particular concept behind the title or album, there are several running themes throughout the record. “There’s two songs about, like, fictional kind of apocalyptic themes,” he said. “There’s betrayal throughout the record. And then there’s a few songs that just, that like we’ve had in the past where, you know, ‘things are going tough but keep fighting through it’ kind of a deal.”

The arrival of the album will be accompanied by a single U.S. live date, on October 4 in Orlando, Florida, before the band jets off to Europe for a month of shows starting on 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”. Dates & locations are listed below.

Tremonti said recently about the CD, “We pushed ourselves harder and further than we ever have previously . . . We wanted this album to be our most unpredictable and exciting one yet.”
