Alter Bridge tentatively plans to release its sixth studio album, the follow-up to 2016’s The Last Hero, album in October. Guitarist Mark Tremonti told Audio Ink Radio that he is fully into the songwriting process for the LP now, explaining, “I’m in the process now where I’m up till four in the morning every night writing, writing, writing . . . I’ll be going right into the studio with Alter Bridge through March and April.” As for the direction of the new Alter Bridge material, Tremonti remarked, “We always try to reinvent ourselves with every record. Right now, it’s a little early, ’cause me and Myles (Kennedy, guitar/vocals) haven’t gotten together. So far, it’s been me writing stuff and Myles writing stuff, and when we come together and combine the stuff, we really see what it’s gonna sound like.” Tremonti has been on the road for much of the past year with his self-named solo act, and intends to hit the road with that band one more time in the late spring and summer. Kennedy is currently on tour as part of The Conspirators, who issued their latest disc, Living The Dream, last fall.
