Forming from the ashes of platinum-selling rock band Creed, Alter Bridge recruited the soaring iron lungs of Myles Kennedy to take the world of rock by storm. Now they're doing it, one album of arena-filling tunes at a time. Looking to find out more about tickets to see Alter Bridge on tour? Read on!
Alter Bridge formed in 2004 when former Creed members Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips invited Myles Kennedy to join as their new lead vocalist. The four-piece released their first album One Day Remains later that year. Featuring the singles 'Open Your Eyes', 'Find the Real' and 'Broken Wings', it went gold in the US and sold 750,000 copies worldwide.
Alter Bridge soon signed with Republic Records and released their second album Blackbird in 2007. Blackbird went silver in the UK and attracted critical acclaim, especially for its singles 'Rise Today' and 'Watch Over You' and its eight-minute title track. Alter Bridge went on a successful world tour for Blackbird which inspired a popular Live From Amsterdam DVD.
Alter Bridge's third album AB III came out on Roadrunner Records in 2010. Its lead single 'Isolation' topped the US Mainstream Rock chart. AB III also became the band's first album to reach the UK top ten, a feat repeated by all their records since. Alter Bridge went on tour again to promote the album. They capped it with a huge show at Wembley Arena, their largest headline show to date.
The band's fourth studio album Fortress came out in 2013 and reached #6 in the UK Albums Chart. Meanwhile, 2016's The Last Hero did even better as it reached #3 in the chart, also hitting #8 in the US. Their more electronic sixth album Walk The Sky hit #4 in the UK in 2019. Alter Bridge supported it with a European tour featuring Shinedown, Sevendust and The Raven Age.
Alter Bridge's rise may have been slow and steady. However, there's no denying the potency of their blend of huge riffs, even bigger choruses and cross-over appeal. Rock fans in the UK and Europe just can't get enough of their arena and amphitheatre filling songs and their stunning live shows.
