Alter Bridge have released a lyric video for their track Blackbird.

The recording has been lifted from the band’s upcoming album Live At The O2 + Rarities which is set to arrive on September 8 via Napalm Records. The package includes their full 19-track performance at London’s O2 Arena in November last year, plus a further 11 tracks.

A statement on the album reads: “The disc features the never-before-released tracks Cruel Sun and Solace, recorded during the One Day Remains sessions, as well as Breathe from the same time, which has only been available as a US retail exclusive.

“These tracks join seven other songs that have only been released in Japan until this collection.”

Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities will launch on 3CD, quadruple vinyl and CD/DVD, which includes a documentary shot around the O2 Arena show.

In June, Alter Bridge announced they would play two shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall on October 2 and 3 where they’ll be joined onstage by the 52-piece Parallax Orchestra.
