ALTER BRIDGE RELEASE MUSIC VIDEO, ‘WOULDN’T YOU RATHER’

The band has also been announced as part of the inaugural Exit 111 festival in October and as a headliner of the sold-out 2020 sailing of Shiprocked

On the heels of the recently announced US co-headline tour with Skillet, Alter Bridge has released the first song and music video from their upcoming sixth studio album, Walk The Sky. “Wouldn’t You Rather” has already started to make noise at radio and the companion video is now available. The clip, directed by Dan Sturgess, is a performance video that showcases the quartet comprised of Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums. The video for “Wouldn’t You Rather” can be seen here:https://youtu.be/bAz1vYAwVKE.

For over 15 years, Alter Bridge has been a band known for blurring the line between hard rock and heavy metal. Recorded in a way never done before, the album was born from complete song ideas created by Kennedy and Tremonti. These songs would then be worked on by the entire band to create the fourteen songs that would make Walk The Sky the listening experience it is. This varies from the band’s previous method going back to their sophomore release Blackbird where Kennedy and Tremonti would combine individual ideas and riffs alongside producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette to form some of the band’s most revered songs. From the opening vocal melody on “One Life” to the moving finale of “Dying Light,” Alter Bridge have created a formidable addition to their music catalog. Songs like “Godspeed,” “Native Son” and “Walking On The Sky” are sure to be early additions to the live set. “Forever Falling” also marks a lead vocal return from Tremonti with Kennedy taking the chorus as done previously on the Fortress favorite “Waters Rising.”

The album is now available for pre-order at https://smarturl.it/WalkTheSky.
