Video Premiere: ALTER BRIDGE's 'Cradle To The Grave'
June 23, 2017
ALTER BRIDGE's video for the song "Cradle To The Grave" can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's fifth studio album, "The Last Hero", which was released in October by Caroline Records in the United States/Canada and Napalm Records throughout the rest of the globe. The CD was produced by longtime friend and collaborator Michael "Elvis" Baskette (SLASH, TREMONTI, TRIVIUM) and mastered by Grammy Award winner Ted Jensen.
ALTER BRIDGE vocalist Myles Kennedy told FaceCulture in an interview that even though the band's new album is called "The Last Hero", it's not necessarily a politically oriented record. Kennedy explained: "The trick was not to get too directly political, because all that does is piss people off. One of the key emotions a lot of people seem to be feeling is disillusionment, and what I try to do as a lyricist is touch on these emotions."
Guitarist Mark Tremonti agreed, telling The Pulse Of Radio that the album title and concept is more general in nature. "Myles kind of ran with that as a theme for the record," he said. "It's a calling out for leaders in this world that you can trust and put faith in and, you know, it's just such a circus right now, especially here in the States, with everything that's going on. So it's just, you know, a call out to find new leaders in this world."
ALTER BRIDGE will release a new live album and rarities collection, "Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities", on September 8 via Napalm Records.
One of the biggest moments of the band's career was the monumental show at London's famous O2 Arena on November 26, 2016. That landmark performance was captured in its entirety. The two-CD, nineteen-track recording documents what an enormous presence ALTER BRIDGE have become on concert stages around the world.
In addition, this latest release includes an exclusive full-length rarities CD sure to excite fans everywhere. The disc features the never-before-released tracks "Cruel Sun" and "Solace" that were recorded during the "One Day Remains" sessions, as well as the song "Breathe" from the same time which has only ever been available as a U.S. retail exclusive via Best Buy. These tracks join seven other songs that have only been released in Japan until this collection.
This incredible selection of ALTER BRIDGE gems will be released in multiple formats. In addition to a standard three-CD audio version, fans can also pick up one of the limited deluxe editions (including a four-LP set and a CD/DVD Earbook) which also include an exclusive ALTER BRIDGE documentary featuring extensive interviews with the band, their crew, and family, giving an amazing glimpse behind the scenes of this legendary show at London's O2 Arena.
