Alter Bridge Streaming New Album 'Fortress' in Full
US rockers Alter Bridge are officially streaming their upcoming record "Fortress" prior to October 8 release through Roadrunner Records. Featuring 12 new songs, "Fortress" marks the fourth release in AB catalogue. Check out exclusive US and UK streams below (via Loudwire). Recorded at Studio Barbarosa in Orlando, Florida, the album was previously announced with lead single "Addicted to Pain" last month. In words of guitarist Mark Tremonti, the band is still in the stage of "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 continued. "It's got a lot of energy. There's only two songs that aren't really big rockers and are more mid-tempo, 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."

"Fortress" track listing: 01. Cry of Achilles 02. Addicted to Pain 03. Bleed It Dry 04. Lover 05. The Uninvited 06. Peace Is Broken 07. Calm the Fire 08. Waters Rising 09. Farther Than the Sun 10. Cry a River 11. All Ends Well 12. Fortress
