TREMONTI, the band led by CREED and ALTER BRIDGE guitarist Mark Tremonti, released its second album, "Cauterize", on Tuesday (June 9). "Cauterize" follows up TREMONTI's 2012 debut, "All I Was", and is the first of two new albums that TREMONTI has recorded. The second, called "Dust", will be out later this year.
Mark Tremonti told The Pulse Of Radio that both sets feature the same level of quality material. "We went in there with the goal of recording 20 songs, and then when it came time to release the songs, I didn't want to put 13 songs on one record and then have seven B-sides," he said. "I wanted all these songs to be thought of as songs that were meant to be on an album. None of these are throwaway songs. So we cut 'em into two 10-song albums that are kind of two dynamic records. If there was two chill songs, one would go on the first, one would go on the second and so on."
The first single from "Cauterize" is called "Another Heart".
Although VAN HALEN bassist Wolfgang Van Halen was part of TREMONTI's touring band in 2013 and played on the new record, he is sitting out TREMONTI's tour schedule because of commitments with VAN HALEN.
TREMONTI is on tour in Europe this month and has yet to announce new North American dates.
Tremonti's other band, ALTER BRIDGE, released its last studio effort, "Fortress", in 2013 and will get to work on album number five later this year.
