ALTER BRIDGE FORTRESS PRE-ORDER GOES LIVE AS DEBUT SINGLE “ADDICTED TO PAIN” IMPACTS RADIO

The wait is over for the US fans of Alter Bridge as the pre-order for their long-awaited fourth album Fortress has gone live.  The album is available for pre-order via iTunes at http://smarturl.it/fortressdigital and at Amazon at http://smarturl.it/fortressphysical and AlterBridge.com.  The album, which is slated for release via EMI Label Services on October 8th, is the band's most aggressive record to date. From the opening acoustic guitar work on "Cry Of Achilles" to the closing riff of the epic title track "Fortress," it is clear Alter Bridge are back to reclaim their place as one of hard rock's standout bands. The album was produced by long-time Alter Bridge producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette, known for his work with Falling In Reverse, Story Of The Year and Incubus to name a few.

 

The debut single "Addicted To Pain" is currently impacting radio and is looking to continue the chart topping success Alter Bridge has come to know around the world.  The debut single "Isolation" from the band's last album ABIII went all the way to #1 on the Rock chart giving the band their first career chart-topper.  "Addicted To Pain" has already received adds at WIIL in Chicago, WRTT in Philadelphia, WJJO in Madison and on SiriusXM's Octane channel.  The band released a visualizer video on YouTube on August 7th so fans could hear the new single and that has been viewed over 250,000 times to date.  The video can be seen at: http://youtu.be/nh_NOkycLCw. The official video for "Addicted To Pain" is being shot by award winning director Dan Catullo and will be released worldwide in September.

 

Alter Bridge recently announced their only US show in 2013 in Orlando, FL on October 4th at the House of Blues.  Tickets for this show are going fast and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com.  The band then heads over to Europe where they will begin an extensive headlining world tour that will run from October 16th through November 16 and will feature Shinedown and Halestorm joining the band on select dates.  Alter Bridge will also make a triumphant return to Wembley Arena in London on October 18th, a venue they sold out on ABIII and documented with the CD/DVD, Alter Bridge Live At Wembley. 

 

Alter Bridge burst onto the music scene in 2004 with the release of their gold-selling debut, One Day Remains.  In 2007, the band released Blackbird, the album that elevated the band's profile worldwide.  The epic solo in the title track "Blackbird" was voted "Greatest Guitar Solo Of All Time" by Guitarist Magazine.  ABIII was released in 2010 and the single "Isolation" gave the band their first #1 single.  Alter Bridge has appeared on The Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live and their music has been used by the WWE, Major League Baseball and NASCAR to name a few.  When Alter Bridge is on hiatus, singer Myles Kennedy can be found fronting Slash's band, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.  Guitarist Mark Tremonti recently released his fist solo project All I Was that found Wolfgang Van Halen playing bass with Mark on the road. Scott Phillips formed Projected with John Connolly and Vinnie Hornsby of Sevendust and released their debut in 2012.

 

Alter Bridge is Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums.
