Alter Bridge is nearly finished with their as-of-yet untitled third album, which is currently being mixed. In a post on the band's website, they said they are targeting a September release.

"The next step in the process is mixing, which already began in mid-April, in New York," the band stated in a post on their website. "The mixing will probably take a few weeks and once that is finished, we will begin the difficult task of deciding which songs will make the album."

The post also stated the band plans to tour Europe in October starting with dates in the UK.

Last fall Alter Bridge lead singer Myles Kennedy announced plans to release a solo album, while his band mates tour with Scott Stapp and Creed. Earlier this month Kennedy stated that his solo album was put on hold to focus specifically on the new Alter Bridge album.

Thanks for the report to Alternative Addiction.com.

    Sean 117, couldn't agree more. Can't wait, this is gonna be one awesome album!

    IMO, Tremonti needs to let Creed die...Alter Bridge is where it's at...but I guess it's hard to turn down huge sums of money to play old music with your buddies...

    If it's anything near Blackbird, it will be amazing! This time the expectations are really high, so I'm curious if it will ever be good enough !

    The cd is in the mixing process, so it doesn't really require the entire attention of the band. Since they are in the mixing process, the cd will definitely be out this year

    Idk what you're talking about...on this album I expect to hear quite alot more of Myles riffs. One Day Remains was basically all Mark. On Blackbird Mark realized Myles had chops and shared the writing process more. On this one they've said it to be heavier but I hope they don't stray away too much from Mark's bluesy style & Myles jazz based roots that imo makes them more unique then other bands. Can't wait til they tour the US again.

    go listen to some lamb of god...theyre the best right now

    Eifler121, I don't doubt that there are some good bands that need some recognition. But do you mean better than Alter Bridge? Or better than most stuff they play on the radio? Because that's all in opinion. IMO, nothing is better than AB, but AB is my favorite band. And Megatallica18, Lamb of God isn't really underrated. They're pretty popular among the metal crowd. But they're not exactly radio friendly, that's why some people haven't heard of them. I don't care for them too much, but to each their own I say.

    Oh yes! I'm so stoked to have another Alter Bridge album. I'm not gonna lie, I was fully concerned when I heard Creed had gotten back together.

    Ooops. He said prominent ROCK band, and that, Lamb Of God, definitely is not. They're metal. Big difference.

    F*ck yeah! Blackbird was incredible, but I've listened to it so much that I've been craving for new material for a while now. Great news about an European tour, too! Hope they'll come to Finland.
    Jahmper
    Woohoo. One of my favorite bands. It's good that Mark writes all the rubish to Creed and the best is making to AB. They never disappointed before. I hope, they won't this time also

    Blackbird was incredible.... I can't wait to hear what they've got waiting for us this time around.

    I have been waiting for this album since the last one came out. One of the best rock acts out there today, hands down.

    Agreed. Blackbird (the song itself) was one of the best songs I've heard in a while. The whole album was incredible, including the bonus tracks.

    how did he manage to do all that you ask? cause the gentleman is nothing short of amazing. you are correct, it is incredible! he is one of the best guitar players around right now to say the least, and his work ethic is phenomenal. best part is too that he has so many more years ahead of him and he has only been writing better and better music since the 1st creed album. other then the last creed album aka the scott stapp show (dude just sang non stop on the whole album, didnt let much room in for the rest of the band to have their piece) he has never disappointed. so excited for another alter bridge album!

    You can't keep Mark & Myles down. Mark writes awesome riffs and Myles has got a great vocal range. Can't wait!

    Good, now kick Creed to the curb, and curb stomp it. Alterbridge will benefit the world more.

    QFT. And to make it even more epic, they'll just use the money they make from touring with Stapp as Creed to put into more AB albums. Ah, sweet justice...

    Actually kennedy's album will be released sometime in 2011.All these men have to be very creative to make some great albums,especially when they are all the time busy.i think that they should take a breath and stop doing simultaneously so many things(kennedy-->solo,slash,alter bridge.the others-->creed,alter bridge)To sum up i doubt the success of the upcoming album

    these guys have an amazing ear for tunes that can be loved by absolutely anyone. you see people ranging from pre-teens to pensioners at their gigs. i can't ever see them putting out rubbish.

    It's kinda hard to believe it would be out that quick since Creed is touring right up through August. And when did Tremonti find time to do this between making Full Circle and touring? Incredible either way.
