ALTER BRIDGE Begins Pre-Production On New Album

According to Ultimate-Guitar.com, ALTER BRIDGE entered a studio in Nashville, TN on February 16 to begin pre-production for the follow-up to their 2004 debut, "One Day Remains". This marks the first time that guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott "Flip" Phillips have recorded outside of Florida; all three CREED albums, as well as ALTER BRIDGE's debut, were recorded within the state.

After their split with Wind-Up Records, ALTER BRIDGE has been shopping for a new label and producer. In online posts, Michael Tremonti, brother of ALTER BRIDGE guitarist Mark Tremonti and official fan liason, informed fans on the message board at AlterBridgeBand.net that the band has indeed found that new label, but is "waiting for the ink to dry" on the contracts before the news can be released. With news of their return to the studio, it's apparent that they've found their producer as well.

Fans who were lucky enough to catch the band's limited tour in 2006 had the chance to get a sneak preview of some of the band's new songs. "Come To Life", "Buried Alive", and "Ties That Bind" (also known by the working title "Bitch Slap") have been heard in early incarnations, but it is not yet known if any (or all) of these songs will make the new album.

The group's sophomore effort, currently known only by the working title "Alter Bridge II", is tentatively slated for a late summer or fall 2007 release.
