Alter Bridge have announced that a new version of their third studio album, "III", is released on 17 October as "III.5". The special edition will include three additional songs - "Zero", "Home", and "Never Born To Follow" - making a total of 17 tracks on the album, as well as an extraordinary hour-long DVD documentary called "One By One". "One By One" is a documentary by award-winning filmmaker and "Live From Amsterdam" director Daniel E Catullo III, intended to be an intimate behind-the-scenes look into the rise of Alter Bridge. The DVD features brand new interviews and concert footage shot all over the world, plus special interviews with Slash, Alter Bridge's management team, and dozens of fans from every corner of the globe. Thanks for the report to PlanetRock.com.

    It'd be nice if they let us buy the dvd separate from the updated album, if we already have the 'unreleased' songs.

    I found it amusing a guy who is the III in his family is directing a documentary on AB III All three of these songs are bonus tracks on the american and japanese editions, just compiled together on one CD. Doesn't really seem like a fair deal.

    I'll probably pick this up for the DVD. "Zero" and "Home" were included with most CD's, as far as I know. "Never Born To Follow" is a really nice track, and Myles hits some really nice high notes near the end. I'm a bit shocked that those three songs didn't make the album "proper", because they're really damn good.

    I actually have all three songs, and never born to follow is pretty good... i have to say they have a different feel to the rest of the album. DVD sounds pretty good tho

    To be honest I believe this version is/was only meant to come out in europe and uk. Their version didn't have any bonus tracks.

    I agree. even on itunes zero and home are there. kind of a bummer. similar to when slash released his solo album a second time. "if you want the bonus cd, then just buy my album again."

    It was on mine.

    Yea, Zero and Home were already on my CD. I'm curious about the "Never Born to Follow". I wish they weren't taking a break in 2012 to focus on side projects. Alter Bridge is really one of the best modern rock bands out there today.

    I love these guys and I own all their releases thus far, but I don't think there's any way to disrespect fans more than saying, "Hey, we've got an updated version of an album you all bought on day one, a year ago."
