MARK TREMONTI On Recording Process For Next ALTER BRIDGE Album: 'We're Well On Our Way'

Rock powerhouse ALTER BRIDGE has commenced recording the follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed 2013 album "Fortress". The as-yet-untitled fifth LP is once again being produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette and is tentatively set for release in the fall.

In a brand new interview with Metal Wani, ALTER BRIDGE guitarist Mark Tremonti stated about the progress of the recording sessions for the band's new CD (hear audio below): "I'm actually tracking [my parts] today. We don't have a specific [release] date set yet, but we're trying as hard as we can to get the album out this year."

He added: "We've already tracked the drums and the bass for the album, and I started my guitar tracking yesterday, and I continue today. So we're well on our way."

Regarding what fans can expect from the next ALTER BRIDGE album, Tremonti told TeamRock Radio: "It could go in any direction. I've got a ton of ideas in all different styles. Last time, it was just one heavy idea after another and hopefully this time we can branch out and bring something new to the table."

"Fortress" was released in 2013 and featured the Active Rock Top 15 single "Addicted To Pain".

When ALTER BRIDGE is on hiatus, Kennedy can be found fronting Slash's band, SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS.

Tremonti will release the third effort from his band TREMONTI, titled "Dust", on April 29.
