Alter Bridge 'Fortress' Pre-Order Goes Live
The wait is over for the US fans of Alter Bridge as the pre-order for their long-awaited fourth album "Fortress" has gone live. The album is available for pre-order via iTunes, at Amazon at and the official website. The album, which is slated for release via EMI Label Services on October 8th, is the band's most aggressive record to date. From the opening acoustic guitar work on "Cry of Achilles" to the closing riff of the epic title track "Fortress," it is clear Alter Bridge are back to reclaim their place as one of hard rock's standout bands. The album was produced by long-time Alter Bridge producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette, known for his work with Falling in Reverse, Story of the Year and Incubus to name a few. The debut single "Addicted to Pain" is currently impacting radio and is looking to continue the chart topping success Alter Bridge has come to know around the world. The debut single "Isolation" from the band's last album "ABIII" went all the way to #1 on the Rock chart giving the band their first career chart-topper. "Addicted to Pain" has already received adds at WIIL in Chicago, WRTT in Philadelphia, WJJO in Madison and on SiriusXM's Octane channel. The band released a visualizer video on YouTube on August 7th so fans could hear the new single and that has been viewed over 250,000 times to date. The video can be seen below. The official video for "Addicted to Pain" is being shot by award winning director Dan Catullo and will be released worldwide in September. Alter Bridge recently announced their only US show in 2013 in Orlando, FL on October 4th at the House of Blues.
