ALTER BRIDGE Announces U.K. Tour

ALTER BRIDGE will return to the U.K. this October to tour the country once again in support of the band's forthcoming third studio album.

After a hugely successful U.K. tour in support of its second LP, "Blackbird", in November 2008, ALTER BRIDGEMyles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Philips — has been busy. As well as writing a brand new CD, the band has been pursuing individual projects — Myles has co-written and lent his vocals to two tracks from the new album from ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash, which has been met with huge acclaim from both fans and critics alike.
