With the band releasing more content in advance of an album release than ever before, ALTER BRIDGE is back with the fourth song from their upcoming album Pawns & Kings. “This Is War” is the bombastic album opener that sets up the musical journey that listeners can expect from a new ALTER BRIDGE album. With Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums, the band is at their songwriting finest on the aggressive track that showcases the musicianship that has earned them a global army of fans. The haunting vocal intro sounds like an internal battle is waging as Myles belts out the lyrics: “Fight for your life, can’t you see what’s coming. Fight for your mind, this is war.” The lyric video was created by ALTER BRIDGE visual collaborator Wayne Joyner and can be seen BELOW.

Pawns & Kings – the band’s seventh studio album – is scheduled for worldwide release on October 14th via Napalm Records. From the opening riffs of “This Is War” to the title track album closer “Pawns & Kings”, ALTER BRIDGE returns with an album of intense tracks that were born after the cycle for their last album was cut short by the global pandemic. Songs like “Dead Among The Living”, “Holiday” and “Last Man Standing” showcase the signature songwriting the band is known for. The album offers numerous epic adventures, with threesongs clocking in over six minutes each. The opus “Fable Of The Silent Son” clocks in at 8:29 and is the longest recorded song in the band’s catalog – a distinction held by “Blackbird” until now. Mark Tremonti steps out of his backing vocal role to take the lead on “Stay”, an introspective ballad that is sure to become a fan favorite live. Known for its signature dual-guitar attack backed by a driving rhythm section, the album’s fast-rising chart-climber “Silver Tongue” is one of the harder songs in the band’s recent catalog. Its animated music video was created and directed by Ollie Jones of Better Feeling Films (Myles Kennedy, Prodigy, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets) and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/snl8OANQ948. Pawns & Kings found ALTER BRIDGE reuniting with longtime collaborator and producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette to create a collection of memorable new additions to the band’s impressive catalog.

  • "This Is War"
  • "Dead Among The Living"
