Longtime Chicago radio personality Cara Carriveau of "Cara's Basement" conducted an interview with CREED members Scott Stapp and Mark Tremonti about their decision to reunite. Listen to the chat using the player below (click on "Creed is back!" in the menu on the right).
As previously reported, ALTER BRIDGE singer Myles Kennedy has posted a message online in which he said that the band will carry on, despite the fact that three members are part of this summer's CREED reunion. Kennedy wrote, "Many of you are wondering how this CREED reunion tour will affect the future of ALTER BRIDGE. No worries, it won't. I can assure you that as soon as they finish in October, we will move forward. Contrary to false statements that might lead you to believe otherwise, ALTER BRIDGE continues to be paramount to the four of us. The guys have my full support. It's a very complex situation to say the least."
Kennedy also wrote that the third ALTER BRIDGE record is "well on its way," adding, "The guys will embark on their reunion tour, I will make my record, and then we will carry on."
The former MAYFIELD FOUR vocalist revealed that he is working on a solo album, which he described as "dreamy" and more "singer/songwriter."
CREED guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips formed ALTER BRIDGE with Kennedy after CREED split in 2004.
CREED announced its reunion last week, with Tremonti, Marshall and Phillips again working with frontman Scott Stapp. A two-month tour will begin on August 6 in Pittsburgh, with a new album in the works as well.
