Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti joined Planet Rock’s My Planet Rocks show for an interview and revealed his thoughts on swapping duties with Myles Kennedy in the forthcoming Alter Bridge record.
On October 18, 2019, Alter Bridge released their sixth studio album ‘Walk The Sky.’ Around a year after the release, they released a deluxe version of the album, titled ‘Walk The Sky 2.0).’ This album featured additional bonus live tracks, along with a new song, ‘Last Rites.’
Following the release of ‘Walk The Sky,’ Alter Bridge started working on a follow-up album. On the other hand, they also announced an extensive European tour which will kick off in November, with Halestorm and Mammoth WVH as supporting acts.
Alter Bridge also announced the upcoming album would be titled ‘Pawns & Kings,’ and it’ll come out on October 14, 2022. In a recent interview with My Planet Rocks radio show, Mark Tremonti commented on the forthcoming record.
Tremonti said that the album has heavy riffs brought by Myles Kennedy, and even their producers don’t know who brings what to the table. Moreover, the guitarist revealed Kennedy loves playing solos and singing, so they like filling each other’s roles without any pressure.
Here is what Mark Tremonti told My Planet Rocks about the upcoming Alter Bridge album:
“There are some heavy riffs on there. It’s funny because some of the heaviest riffs on the record, Myles brought to the table. It’s funny that even my producers can’t tell who’s bringing what to the table anymore. Because back when the band started, I was the heavy guy, and Myles was the moody guy. And now you never know.
At this point, Myles loves playing guitar solos, and I love singing. So we like to do each other’s roles. I think he doesn’t feel the pressure as a guitar player because he’s known as a singer; I don’t feel the pressure as a singer because I’m known as a guitar player. So we liked filling the other person’s role. It’s fun.”
