Alter Bridge to release sixth studio album, ‘Walk the Sky,’ on Oct. 18

Alter Bridge will release its sixth studio album, “Walk the Sky,” on Oct. 18 via Napalm Records. The 14-track opus marks a creative highpoint for the quartet comprising Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums.

Recorded in a way never done before, the album was born from complete song ideas created by Kennedy and Tremonti. These songs then were worked on by the entire band to create the 14 songs that would make “Walk the Sky” the listening experience it is. This varies from the band’s previous method going back to its sophomore release, “Blackbird,” where Kennedy and Tremonti would combine individual ideas and riffs alongside producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette to form some of the band’s most revered songs.

From the opening vocal melody on “One Life” to the moving finale of “Dying Light,” Alter Bridge have created a formidable addition to its music catalog. Songs like “Godspeed,” “Native Son” and “Walking on the Sky” are sure to be early additions to the live set. “Forever Falling” also marks a lead vocal return from Tremonti with Kennedy taking the chorus as done previously on the “Fortress” favorite “Waters Rising.” The first single, “Wouldn’t You Rather,” will released in two weeks. 

The album is available for pre-order at https://smarturl.it/WalkTheSky.
