Tremonti list UK tour dates

Tremonti have added five UK dates to their European tour.

Mark Tremonti and co will play Birmingham, Edinburgh, Manchester, Bristol and London in December, supporting second album Cauterize, which was launched in June.

Alter Bridge guitarist Tremonti recently said of the work: “It’s mostly influenced by a mix of being in the back of mum’s car, listening to 70s soft rock and then growing up, then being a Slayer fan and Celtic Frost fan.

“I love black metal, speed metal, the thrash movement. You mix that with 70s soft rock so you’ve got the melody combined with the thrash – that’s what I love.”

Most of the previously-announced European dates take place before the British ones.

Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
