Alter Bridge/Creed axesmith and songwriter, Mark Tremonti, will be unleashing his first ever solo album, "All I Was," on July 17th under the name Tremonti.

The album is being released via Fret12 Records, a company Mark started with Daniel Tremonti and Tom Stanley. The release will be available at Best Buy and WalMart as well as via all digital retailers including iTunes and Amazon.

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 performs live. Long time friend and collaborator Michael "Elvis" Baskette, known for his work with Alter Bridge, Chevelle and Trivium, produced the album.

Tremonti has also just announced the band's first ever-public appearance. They will be playing in Mark's hometown of Orlando FL on July 17. The already sold-out show will take place at The Social and Tremonti will be performing the entire album "All I Was" at the record release celebration. The band will also be creating a video that will include content submitted by the fans documenting their night at The Social.

Tremonti's loyal fan base has also bonded together to create the Army of 12. The Army of 12 is an online community that is being used to support the debut album in territories all around the world. Various chapters of the Army of 12 have sprung up in places such as Russia, Canada, Jordan and in cities such as Virginia Beach, Milwaukee and Tallahassee to name a few. The main Army of 12 page can be found here.

The first single is "You Waste Your Time" and has been creating quite a stir online. The song shot to #10 on the iTunes Rock Singles chart when it was released.

    The single is not bad at all. Dude has some major talent. Good to hear his heavier style
    Also, this music video is live audio. This isn't the "fixed" studio version, what you hear is what you would hear in person.
    Woah, why the hell did he even bother with Creed? This isnt my style of music, but its WORLDS better then Creed.
    Fuck man I gotta wait another week? Shit I thought it was coming out July 10th. I've been waiting all year for this record!
    This article failed to mention that he has samples of 3 other tracks over at Album is going to be amazing!
    Cannot wait for this release, just need to find somewhere in Australia that will have a hard copy of the CD on release date!!
