Alter Bridge have posted a video for This Is War, the fourth song to be taken from their forthcoming album Pawns & Kings. The single follows Sin After Sin, which was released last month.

Pawns & Kings is the band’s seventh studio album and is produced by longtime collaborator Michael 'Elvis' Baskette. It will be released on October 14 via Napalm Records. 

The full-length has been described by the band as their "most aggressive collection of songs to date" and This Is War certainly ticks all the boxes for those seeking a thick slice of classic Alter Bridge.

Check out the soaring four-minute riffathon below.
