Mark Tremonti has broken down latest album Dust track-by-track.
It launched last month via Fret12 and was recorded during the same sessions as 2015’s Cauterize.
The guitarist previously revealed that the title track carried his favourite solo – and he’s picked out two more songs that he thinks stand out on the record.
He tells Blank Slate Creative: “My Last Mistake is one of my favourite tracks from Dust. It’s about having a bad influence in your life that you just can’t break away from. I’ve had many in my life where I had friends who were just a bad influence that you just couldn’t get away from.”
Tremonti also reports that Tore My Heart Out contains the best riff on the record.
He continues: “I remember playing these songs for my friends and John Connolly from Sevendust said this was always his favourite. It’s a song about complacency and seeing people born with a silver spoon in their mouths and not doing anything with what they’ve been given.”
Tremonti kick off a European tour on May 27 in Dortmund, Germany, and will perform at Download on June 10 (opens in new tab).
