ALTER BRIDGE's MYLES KENNEDY Interviewed On 'The Classic Metal Show' (Audio)

ALTER BRIDGE and SLASH singer Myles Kennedy was interviewed on the latest edition of "The Classic Metal Show", which is heard live on Saturdays from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. EST at TheClassicMetalShow.com. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

ALTER BRIDGE's fourth album, "Fortress", is likely to sell between 30,000 and 35,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on October 8 via EMI Label Services.

"Fortress" track listing:

01. Cry Of Achilles
02. Addicted To Pain
03. Bleed It Dry
04. Lover
05. The Uninvited
06. Peace Is Broken
07. Calm The Fire
08. Waters Rising
09. Farther Than The Sun
10. Cry A River
11. All Ends Well
12. Fortress

"Fortress" follows up ALTER BRIDGE's last release, 2010's "AB III". During the break, singer Myles Kennedy toured as part of Slash's solo band and also performed all the vocals on the ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist's second solo effort, last year's "Apocalyptic Love". The Pulse Of Radio asked Kennedy how singing for ALTER BRIDGE is different from working with Slash. "Vocally, each band brings a different approach out," he said. "The feel of the music will dictate that. With Slash, there's definitely more of a bluesy, soulful vibe that just naturally happens. With ALTER BRIDGE, because it's got more of a metal undercurrent, I think there's something that just happens there as well. But the nice thing is is that it allows you to stretch in two different directions."

Guitarist Mark Tremonti recently told Music Radar that the quartet did everything they could to make the new disc as unpredictable as possible, explaining, "We messed with time signatures, tones, key changes. Everything we could throw at these songs, we did. They have you never knowing what you're getting next."

The first single from the new album is called "Addicted To Pain".

ALTER BRIDGE next jets off to Europe for a month of shows starting on October 16, ending in mid-November. Full North American tour plans are still to be announced.
