The battle awaits, but Alter Bridge is ready to meet it head-on. And they have the perfect song to put that feeling to music, as the band released the title track of their Pawns & Kings album as well as the details of the next release.
After venturing out for their other respective projects, Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti are back with drummer Scott Phillips and bassist Brian Marshall to put the finishing touches on their Pawns & Kings album, which is on track for an October 14 street date via Napalm Records.
The new track, which closes the upcoming album, is filled with the haunting and uplifting vocal work we’ve come to expect from frontman Myles Kennedy, while the band delivers a full-throttle backing filled with hard-hitting drums and Tremonti’s standout solo riffs. It’s a heavy and aggressive start for this last chapter added to the band’s legacy.
For this latest effort, the band once again worked with longtime producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette. They continued to push the boundaries of their storytelling, with the opus “Fable of the Silent Son” now becoming the longest song in their catalog, with an epic 8:29. Other hits include the album opener “This Is War”, “Dead Among the Living”, “Silver Tongue”, “Holiday” and more. Pre-orders are currently underway at this location.
Meanwhile, Alter Bridge will end 2022 on the road in Europe and the UK in November and December. Dates can be seen below and ticketing information can be found here.
