Alter Bridge Announce Title And Release Date For New Album


Hard rockers Alter Bridge have announced that they will be releasing their new studio album Fortress on October 8th via EMI. The album is the follow up to 2010’s ABIII and was produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Falling In Reverse, Story Of The Year). There are going to be 13 tracks on the album with confirmed titles being “Cry Of Achilles”, “Bleed It Dry”, “Farther Than The Sun”, “All Ends Well”, and the titled track “Fortress”.

Guitarist Mark Tremonti (ex-Creed) states, “When we started pre-production on this album, we pushed ourselves harder and further than we ever have previously in order to make the most out of every individual arrangement. We wanted this album to be our most unpredictable and exciting one yet. From the early feedback we have received, it looks like we have achieved what we set out to do.
