Alter Bridge premiered music video for "Addicted to Pain."

The song is taken from the band's upcoming fourth album, "Fortress," due out on September 30 ahead of a UK tour.

As Classic Rock points out, Myles Kennedy and co call their 12-track latest work "unapologetic, searing hard rock."

In the most recent news the band axeman Mark Tremonti revealed that with this album the band was "proving" themselves:

"When I was growing up and I'd see a band's fourth album, I'd feel like, 'Wow, they're at the end of their career. I'll be lucky to have four albums in my entire career," Tremonti explains. "I guess since I'm older now I just feel like we're always trying to improve ourselves and trying to build upon what we've done in our past and make each record better."

"It's an exciting record, top to bottom," he continues. "It's got a lot of energy. There's only two songs that aren't really big rockers and are more midtempo, and two others that could be considered more epic-y but still have a really big rock sound. We pushed ourselves really hard to try and improve our sound with it and improve our boundaries.

    Wasn't the pain you are addicted to in association with a person, especially a woman you were hurt from? The video is more about physical pain... I may have been wrong. Great video though! And freaking epic song!
    Fuckin sweet song! Amazing video! Fantastic band! Can't wait for Fortress! Pre-ordered it this afternoon!
    Love their attitude about this album. This song kicks major ass and Tremonti still says "We are still trying to prove ourselves as a band" instead of just talking about how much they've grown and that this is their best work to date. Always trying to work harder. Excited for this album!!
    Their fans are addicted to ear pain.
    Wow, this comment is stupid in so many ways, that it's hard to describe it in words... You may not like their music, but they ARE great musicians, who make good music, no matter if it's you're style or not. It's totally ok for you to dislike them, but this comment...
