ALTER BRIDGE Completes Recording New Album

ALTER BRIDGE has issued the following update:

"We are pleased to inform you that the recording of our third album has been completed. It was an amazing journey and we believe that the songs that we have created are our most inspired and dynamic work to date.

"We all worked very hard on these songs, over a long period of time, and we are all fiercely proud of what we have recorded.

"We have played some of the rough mixes of the songs to a few of our 'trusted ears' and they are telling us that we have absolutely topped the 'Blackbird' album. The true test will come when we get to hear what all you fans think and we are very much looking forward to that day.

"The next step in the process will be mixing, which will begin in mid-April, in New York. The mixing will probably take a few weeks and once that is finished, we will begin the difficult task of deciding which songs will make the album. The goal is to release the album in September, before our planned October tour in Europe that will start in the U.K."

ALTER BRIDGE's sophomore effort, "Blackbird", sold 47,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release in October 2007 to debut at No. 13 on The Billboard 200 chart.

ALTER BRIDGE guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips all play in CREED, which announced its reunion in 2009 after a five-year hiatus.

ALTER BRIDGE also features singer Myles Kennedy, who is a member of legendary VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash's new touring band.
