Alter Bridge

Since forming in 2004, Alter Bridge has seen its stock steadily rise in the hard rock realm, its prominence emphasized by a full-fledged arena tour of Europe to close out 2016. On Jan. 20, the band–vocalist/guitarist Myles Kennedy, guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips–will kick off its first North American headlining tour in support of its latest album (see dates below), the superb 2016 release The Last Hero. Though the album is Alter Bridge’s first since 2013, the band members haven’t taken much time off. Kennedy fronts Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash’s solo band and has been working on his own solo material; Tremonti leads his eponymous, speed metal-influenced band; and Phillips hits the skins for Projected, featuring members of Sevendust and Tremonti’s band. Live Metal’s Greg Maki recently caught up with Kennedy to discuss the new album, tour and more. (more…)

We haven’t finished the fourth month, but I have a surefire candidate for the best show of 2014. And the band pulled it off with its singer fighting a cold or some other malady affecting his voice.

The last time I saw Alter Bridge in concert, they were co-headlining the 2011 Carnival of Madness tour with Theory of a Deadman, also here at Baltimore’s Rams Head Live. It was a midweek show, with Black Stone Cherry and two other bands also on the bill. If I recall correctly, it was a good bit short of a sellout. This time, they came to town on the most un-rock ‘n’ roll night of the week, Monday, with support only from Monster Truck, a Canadian band with which few in the audience were familiar. And they sold it out well in advance. (more…)
