'Darker' ALTER BRIDGE Album On The Way

July 20, 2010

According to The Pulse of Radio, ALTER BRIDGE's yet-to-be-titled third album is scheduled to tentatively arrive in September and will follow up 2007's "Blackbird". Lead singer Myles Kennedy told The Pulse of Radio that fans can expect a "darker" effort this time around. "There is certainly a common thread throughout the, almost the entire record," he said. "It's lyrically a pretty dark album, probably the darkest record I've been a part of. Just a lot of questions personally that I had over the last few years, just things I was struggling with, and it was a very cathartic record for me, just to kind of get that all out. I mean, that's generally the way I personally like to write lyrics, for things that are honest and from the heart."

Although Billboard reported that the band has signed a new deal with Roadrunner Records, that may be for Europe only with the group remaining on the Universal label in the U.S.

ALTER BRIDGE plans to hit the road in October after the album is out, starting with a European tour.

A spring 2011 supporting slot with GODSMACK is planned for next March.

Kennedy is currently touring with Slash as his live lead vocalist, after singing two numbers on the guitarist's debut solo album.

The instrumental members of ALTER BRIDGE are touring this summer in their other band, CREED.
