Somewhere between Myles Kennedy touring with Slash and Mark Tremonti and Scott Phillips reuniting Creed and releasing a new album followed by a tour, the three managed to get back together with their old friend Brian Marshall to write and record the next installment in Alter Bridge history. Over achievers much? It’s alright though, their insatiable appetite to burn the midnight musical oil works to our advantage because the results were their latest offering AB III, released earlier this month.
AB III offers up a new side of Alter Bridge – a little bit more sinister and a little darker than one might expect, the songs lyrically take listeners down a path of lost innocence and questioning everything that you once thought was real. Alter Bridge runs you through a gamut of churning emotions from song to song.
Enlisting the help of producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette again, the band set out to create an album that pleased them all artistically without anyone or anything getting in the way. The writing collaboration between Kennedy and Tremonti has always been one of the best in the business and the collection of songs put forth on this album only solidifies that. The reviews have been rolling in and AB III is definitely a contender for one of the best rock albums of the year.
We recently tracked down Myles out on the road in support of their new album to talk to us about it!
