ALTER BRIDGE has completed work on its sixth album for a tentative fall release.
Bassist Brian Marshall tweeted earlier today that the band had finished recording and mixing the follow-up to 2016's "The Last Hero". He added: "Album artwork looking sick! Can not wait for you all to hear this."
Guitarist Mark Tremonti, who has spent much of the last year touring with his band TREMONTI, spoke about ALTER BRIDGE's next LP during a recent interview with Audio Ink Radio.
Asked about the direction of the new ALTER BRIDGE music, Tremonti said that he was "trying to come from a different place. It's hard to explain. I'm trying to make it not be the same," he said. "We always try to reinvent ourselves with every record… But I'm trying to make it sound a little different than it has in the past. We'll see how it turns out."
ALTER BRIDGE's fifth studio album, "The Last Hero", was released in October 2016 via Caroline Records in the United States/Canada and Napalm Records throughout the rest of the globe. The 13-track opus was produced by longtime friend and collaborator Michael "Elvis" Baskette (SLASH, TREMONTI, TRIVIUM) and mastered by Grammy Award winner Ted Jensen.
