On February 23, "Distortion" radio show, which is hosted by Dave "Higgo" Higgins of Australia's long-running rock station Triple M, conducted an interview with Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy of ALTER BRIDGE at the Sydney stop of this year's Soundwave festival in Australia. You can now listen to the chat below.
ALTER BRIDGE celebrated its 10th anniversary on January 6 with the release of "Alter Bridge X", a massive, 27-disc box set that was limited to just 3,000 copies worldwide. The set includes all four ALTER BRIDGE studio albums, along with DVD, Blu-ray, and vinyl audio copies of "Live From Amsterdam" and "Live At Wembley", including a 3D version of the latter. Also in the box was every webisode to date, hours of unreleased interviews and documentary footage, a coffee table book, a signed poster, and much more.
The complete set contains 16 DVDs/Blu-rays, seven CDs and four vinyl discs.
The hardcover coffee table book contains more than 100 pages of exclusive photos spanning the group's decade-long career.
The 3,000 copies were split between 1,500 for Europe, 1,000 for the U.S. and 500 for the rest of the world.
ALTER BRIDGE recently completed a headlining tour of Europe in support of its latest album, "Fortress", which featured the Active Rock Top 15 single "Addicted To Pain".
ALTER BRIDGE was started by the three instrumental members of CREED and guitarist Mark Tremonti told The Pulse Of Radio how ex-MAYFIELD FOUR singer Myles Kennedy became the final piece of the puzzle. "When we first started the band, we were desperately looking for a singer, and my buddy had brought me a MAYFIELD FOUR CD and, you know, hearing the CD, I was blown away — this guy's, you know, not doing anything right now and he's this good?" he said. "I made demos and sent 'em his way, and he sang over them and he seemed to be into the songs and we loved what he did and he flew down January 2, 2004, and we've been a band ever since."
