ALTER BRIDGE guitarist Mark Tremonti has told The Spokesman-Review that the band will reconvene in 2022 to record a new album. "That's the plan," he said. "Myles [Kennedy, ALTER BRIDGE frontman] has his solo album, and I have mine. We'll eventually get together as ALTER BRIDGE. We're looking forward to recording and touring."
Two months ago, Myles told the "Lipps Service With Scott Lipps" podcast that ALTER BRIDGE hasn't started working on material for the follow-up to 2019's "Walk The Sky" album. "We are not yet," he said. "I think everybody's kind of hunkered down in their own solo project. I know Mark Tremonti is in that world right now. Obviously, I've got [my second solo album coming out]. So I would say we'll start thinking about that more towards the end of the year, early next year. Speaking for myself as a writer, I need to refill the creative well. Having done the ALTER BRIDGE record, and then the second solo record, I need to get those creative juices built back up again."
ALTER BRIDGE released a seven-song EP, "Walk The Sky 2.0", last November via Napalm Records. The effort contains live versions of a few of the band's favorites from "Walk The Sky" — "Wouldn't You Rather", "Pay No Mind", "Native Son", "Godspeed", "In The Deep" and "Dying Light" — as well as one new studio track, "Last Rites", which was written, recorded and completed entirely during the COVID-19 lockdown.
"Walk The Sky" came out in October 2019 via Napalm Records.
Myles released his sophomore solo album, "The Ides Of March", on May 14 via Napalm Records.
