ALTER BRIDGE BIOGRAPHY Alter Bridge will remain forever known as a band which has raised the creative team behind the gigantic success of the ”Creed”. After the split up of the band of “My Own Prison” and “With Arms Wide Open” in 2004, the then guitarist Mark Tremonti and drummer Scott Philips brought back the bass guitar player Brian Marshall to their new group and, counting on the help of the prodigious ex Mayfield Flour, Myles Kennedy, Alter Bridge- which the name comes after a bridge in Tremonti´s home town, signed its discographic debut, stamped by Wind Up Records, becoming then available to the fans on August 10th 2005 “One Day Remains”.
Mainly formed by the guitarist of the band, the album has shown the group leaning more towards heavy rock rather than the grunge aesthetic style the band had prior. After journeying the world in a tour, the band abandoned the “Wind Up” in order to sign with “Republic”, a subsidiary of the Universal Music. Having a more thriving structure behind, in the end of 2007 , the band launched “ Blackbird”, an album that, on the contrary to its debut, counted on more participations of Myles Kennedy at a song writing level. In 2009, with the trio base together with the Creed when it set off for a farewell tour, the group then decided to have a break. The vocal singer and guitarist, in his turn, joined the band to follow the iconic Slash in a solo format, known since then as the “Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators”, which started to work on a hypothetical solo album. Nonetheless Alter Bridge has not spent much time apart, and soon in 2010, launched the 3rd album, “AB III” The subsequent tour would originate two years later, a Live at Wembley: European Tour 2011, and with no desire to stop, the musicians were back into the studio to record a 4th album. The Acclaimed “Fortress” was edited on September 30th, 2013, receiving positive and unanimous reactions from the critics and from the public.
In 2016 the band broke the silence after 3 years and at last launched the very long awaited 5th long lasting record. “ The Last Hero”, which included the single of enormous success “ Show Me A Leader” Displaying an impressive work ethics, the musicians entered once more the tour, performing two live shows: “ At The O2 Arena + Rarities» and «Live At The Royal Albert Hall», in 2017 and 2018, respectively and in 2019, they were back into the studio to record the long awaited «Walk The Sky».
