Mark Tremonti: Solo Album Details Revealed
4
Alter Bridge/Creed axesmith/songwriter, Mark Tremonti, is gearing up for his first-ever solo project this summer. All I Was is scheduled for release on July 10th via Fret 12 Records, a company Mark started with Daniel Tremonti and Tom Stanley. Mark's solo effort, being released under the name Tremonti, showcases his acclaimed guitar playing and incomparable songwriting. The release also marks his debut on lead vocals. Tremonti features Eric Friedman on rhythm guitar and Garrett Whitlock on drums. Mark's Alter Bridge/Creed bandmate, Brian Marshall, will be stepping in for the bass duties when Tremonti takes to the road later this year. Long time friend and collaborator Michael "Elvis" Baskette, known for his work with Alter Bridge, Chevelle and Trivium, produced the album. From the first riffs of album opener "Leave It Alone" to the final notes of the closer "Decay," it is apparent that Mark's playing and songwriting are at a new level. The metal music influences he grew up on ring throughout the album on songs like "So You're Afraid," "Wish You Well" and "Giving Up." Mark finds his voice; literally, stepping up to the microphone for the first time in his career as a lead vocalist. The depth of his voice carries the melodies on songs like "New Way Out" and "Proof." The first single, "You Waste Your Time," will be unleashed at Active Rock radio over the next few weeks and will continue the success at the format that Mark has achieved with both of his other projects. The track listing for All I Was is: 01. Leave It Alone 02. So You'e Afraid 03. Wish You Well 04. Brains 05. The Things I've Seen 06. You Waste Your Time 07. New Way Out 08. Giving Up 09. Proof 10. All I Was 11. Doesn't Matter 12. Decay

    Let me make it clear that Creed being "offensive" is your opinion. It is not fact. My opinion? I don't like you. But that's not a fact.

    Heard these a couple days ago; has a chance to be best album of year. One of the most gifted guitar players in the world, though in my estimation he is extremely underrated.

    I love how he used to think he wasn't a good singer. My mind is stil blown at how awesome his voice is.

    I've thought Mark was one of the best since I heard Human Clay 12 or 13 years ago. "Wrong Way" got me hooked on his style. Funny enough the first time I heard Alter Bridge I thought Mark Tremonti was playing the guitar. I don't wanna start something with the die-hard Dimebag fans (I'm one myself) but I think he's this age's equivilent.

    I hear alot of Dimebag in Alexi Laiho's playing... this Tremonti guy has a weird style of phrasing his solos, kinda like Dimebag aswell. This album will be sick if his vocals are up to par, itll be great.

    Why does everyone see "Mark Tremonti" and think Creed? I think Alter Bridge which is a LOT more similar...

    They won't drop Scott as a singer, because without him, it would not be Creed. Scott's voice goes with Creed's style as well.
