ALTER BRIDGE/CREED Guitarist Working On Speed/Thrash Metal Album

San Antonio cult TV show "Robb's MetalWorks" has released a four-minute preview of an interview with Mark Tremonti of ALTER BRIDGE and CREED conducted on May 3, 2011 at the House of Blues in Chicago, Illinois. Mark discusses ALTER BRIDGE's new album, "ABIII"; the rumors of an ALTER BRIDGE/CREED tour; his upcoming "Tremonti Project" release which will include speed and thrash metal; and why Texas crowds rule.

Regarding his upcoming solo project, Tremonti said, "I just had three months off while [ALTER BRIDGE singer] Myles [Kennedy] was touring with Slash, so I figured it was a good time to get some music put together. I collaborated with Eric Friedman [a.k.a. Erock] and Garrett Whitlock. All this stuff that I wanted to see the light of day that never really got used for ALTER BRIDGE and CREED is what I'm putting on the record. There's a lot of speed metal and thrash stuff in there riffs that I had sitting around that I'm putting on this record. So it's definitely a heavier-sounding album."

The full 15-minute interview will be released later this year via cable in the south Texas region.

"ABIII" was released by the band on Alter Bridge Recordings via EMI Label Services and debuted at #17 on The Billboard 200 chart.

ALTER BRIDGE is Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips.
