Biography

Alter Bridge resurrected the music-making portion of Creed. After that band's 2004 dissolution, guitarist Mark Tremonti and drummer Scott Phillips tapped ousted bassist Brian Marshall for the new project. Ex-Mayfield Four frontman Myles Kennedy was soon on board as well, and Alter Bridge made their Wind-Up debut in August 2004 with One Day Remains. Written largely by Tremonti, the record tried to lean more toward a hard rock/metal sound than the post-grunge grandstanding of his previous group. After touring the world to support the album, the band decided to leave Wind-Up and sign with the Universal imprint Republic. In late 2007 the label released Blackbird, an album that featured more songwriting contributions from Kennedy. In 2009, the band took a break as Creed re-formed and went on tour, and Kennedy joined Slash's touring band, as well as working on a solo album. However, Alter Bridge were soon back together and their third album, AB III, was released in 2010, followed in 2012 by the concert recording Live at Wembley: European Tour 2011. After getting off tour, the band went back into the studio to record their fourth album, the critically acclaimed Fortress, a more thrash-influenced album that arrived in October of 2013. In 2016, the band released their much anticipated fifth studio long-player, The Last Hero, which included the single "Show Me a Leader." ~ Johnny Loftus
