Tremonti, the band led by Creed/Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti, will release its third album, Dust, on April 29 via Fret 12. The cover artwork can be seen below. According to a teaser video featuring a clip of the new song “Catching Fire,” which also can be seen below, new tour dates will be announced soon, as well.

Dust was recorded during the same sessions as last year’s Cauterize. It features Tremonti on vocals and guitar, Eric Friedman on guitar, Wolfgang Van Halen on bass and Garrett Whitlock on drums. (Tanner Keegan replaced Van Halen last year in the touring band.) Michael “Elvis” Baskette produced both albums.

“I wanted both records to flow nice within themselves,” Tremonti told Live Metal in an interview last year. “If I had two slower songs, I’d put one on one record and one on the other, and try and make the records evenly.” (more…)

After conquering the world with two bands (Creed and Alter Bridge), Mark Tremonti is on his way to doing it again leading a third, the appropriately named Tremonti. The group—which, in addition to its namesake on lead guitar and vocals, features guitarist Eric Friedman, drummer Garrett Whitlock and bassist Wolfgang Van Halen—is an outlet for Mark’s heavier side, a nod to the music on which he grew up. Its second album, Cauterize, will be released June 9 via Fret 12, and record number three, Dust, is already in the can, too. As the band wrapped up a U.S. tour and prepared to head to Europe, Tremonti called in to Live Metal’s Greg Maki to discuss his eponymous band, the new album and more. (more…)
