Due October 8, the band's fourth studio album and first since 2010's "AB III" was overseen by long-time Alter Bridge producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Falling in Reverse, Story of the Year, Incubus).
"When we started pre-production on this album, we pushed ourselves harder and further than we ever have previously in order to make the most out of every individual arrangement," says guitarist Mark Tremonti. "We wanted this album to be our most unpredictable and exciting one yet. From the early feedback we have received, it looks like we have achieved what we set out to do."
Alter Bridge recently announced their only US show in 2013 in Orlando, FL on October 4th at the House of Blues, following which the band will then head to Europe where they will begin an extensive headlining world tour; the first leg runs from October 16th through November 16 and will feature Shinedown and Halestorm on select dates.
