Biography

In 2004 guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips teamed up with singer Myles Kennedy to try and recapture their erstwhile Creed success under a different name. Following the release of the second Alter Bridge album, the band members returned to their alternative musical endeavours. Fuelled by the hit single ‘Isolation’ (2010), Alter Bridge’s third album ‘AB III’ opened the door to more commercial success. Everyone continued their involvement in their respective side projects until the recording and release of ‘Fortress’ (2013), an album that cemented Alter Bridge’s reputation for providing a unique mix of (hard) rock, alternative metal and post-grunge. Carrying that momentum forward, ‘The Last Hero’ (2016) featured on many a shortlist for album of the year. It is a bombastic heavy rock album that was universally praised for its lyrical themes as well as Tremonti’s and Kennedy’s performance. Expect the set list to include songs from their 6th studio album ‘Walk the Sky (2019), yet another ball-breaking effort with recent single ‘Take the Crown’ and the heavy-hitting ‘Godspeed’ as two of the standout tracks.
