ALTER BRIDGE Video Director: This Is 'Going To Be One Of My Biggest Rock Videos Ever'

Video director Dale "Rage" Resteghini (SHADOWS FALL, FEAR FACTORY, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN) has just completed work on his latest project — the clip for ALTER BRIDGE's new single, "Rise Today". The song is featured on the band's upcoming second album, "Blackbird", which arrives in stores on October 9.

Commented Resteghini: "I feel is going to be one of my biggest rock videos ever. The song is amazing and the way we shot it, on anamorphic and spherical lenses on 16MM using all kinds of film stocks including reversal film, true black-and-white as well as cross processing some of the neg allowed me to really get creative with this video.

"ALTER BRIDGE, for those of you who do not know, is made up of the three original members of CREED, the supergroup that sold millions upon millions of albums through the late '90s and early parts of the 2000s. They now have an even more talented frontman in Myles [Kennedy] whose vocal range is astounding. Their lead single of their new album on Universal has got the goods to be a massive radio smash as it's already climbing the charts.

"We shot this video in Orlando in a raw rehearsal space and created an extremely ominous and hopeful vibe... and their manager, Steve, who is one of the great ones from the glory days of rock and roll was speechless as to how well things went and said that he's never had a video experience that went so well, as did the band!!!"

"Blackbird" will follow up the band's 2004 debut, "One Day Remains".
