New Alter Bridge Album Details
2013-07-24 by Austin | 46 Comments

Florida-based hard rock group Alter Bridge has released details of their upcoming fourth album, Fortress. The album will be released October 8th and will be produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette.

Tremonti opened up about the recording process, saying, “When we started pre-production on this album, we pushed ourselves harder and further than we ever have previously in order to make the most out of every individual arrangement.” He continued, “We wanted this album to be our most unpredictable and exciting one yet. From the early feedback we have received, it looks like we have achieved what we set out to do".

They haven't let me down yet. Myles is so talented, and Mark plays just what's needed.

From what I've seen, the title track will be another epic, so I'm most excited to hear that.

ABIII was... decent. If they'd cut out a few of the weaker tracks and only had around 10 songs I feel it would have been a lot stronger.

I agree with that.

I also thought Tremonti's album was better than AB3.

@Ciperion


Yeah I know what you're saying. Maybe they will have some good surprises in store on this one.

I hope it tops ABIII, but it'll take some voodoo magic to reach Blackbird heights. I believe in them though.


I also like how they've consistently put out an album every 3 years.

Well I couldn't very well let the new AB album get released without hype, could I? Also, regardless of if it ever becomes a regular thing again, come October you can bet I'll be throwing up a review.
