Alter Bridge's Tremonti says album 'well under way'

Alter Bridge

Mark Tremonti confirms Alter Bridge are back in the studio recording their fifth album.

The guitarist says the band have begun tracking for the follow-up to 2013’s Fortress and they aim to launch it this year.

He tells Metal Wani: “I’m actually tracking today. We don’t have a specific date set yet but we’re trying as hard as we can to get the album out this year.

“We’re in the studio now. We’ve already tracked the bass and the drums for the album, I started my guitar tracking yesterday and I continue today. We’re well on our way.”

Tremonti last year told TeamRock Radio: “The album could go in any direction. I’ve got a ton of ideas in all different styles. Last time it was just one heavy idea after another – hopefully this time we can branch out and bring something new to the table.”

Meanwhile, Tremonti is set to release his third solo album Dust on April 29, as Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy enters the studio with returning Guns N’Roses guitarist Slash next month

Tremonti will trek Europe, with an appearance scheduled at Download festival in June. Alter Bridge will also tour North America later this summer.
