ALTER BRIDGE Not Likely To Return Until 2013

According to The Pulse Of Radio, ALTER BRIDGE drummer Scott Phillips told Stereoboard that it's unlikely fans will hear from the band again until 2013, but that they shouldn't take that as a bad sign. Phillips explained, "We'll certainly be visible next year, but it'll be on various projects and then probably 2013 will be the reunion there of ALTER BRIDGE and we'll diligently get to work on a new record and tour as soon as we can."

ALTER BRIDGE spent much of 2011 on the road behind its last album, "AB III", but 2012 will see singer Myles Kennedy return to work as the lead singer in Slash's band, while the other three members of the group will reunite with vocalist Scott Stapp for a new CREED tour and album.

Phillips said, "Each of us have our own thing. I think we've got a lot of different paths we're heading on in 2012," adding that in addition to working with CREED, guitarist Mark Tremonti is prepping his first solo album for release.

Meanwhile, "AB III" was probably ALTER BRIDGE's most acclaimed effort so far and Tremonti told The Pulse Of Radio why he thought it worked so well. "I think we figured out what our sound was from the 'Blackbird' record, and we, I guess we were just more prepared to build on that sound and to make it more dynamic and that's all we really set out to do, is just make the best record we could, make it a dynamic record, and make it something that was uncompromised by record labels and singles and all that stuff," he said.

Earlier this fall, ALTER BRIDGE released a special edition of "AB III" featuring three previously unheard songs and an hour-long documentary on the group's career.

The band also filmed a concert last month in London's Wembley Arena for release on DVD sometime in 2012.

CREED will be playing its first two albums, "My Own Prison" and "Human Clay", in their entirety at a series of intimate shows next April, while also prepping a new studio album.
