Welcome back to The Rock Show, where it’s all about the music!
Just a brief update – Alter Bridge is going to be re-releasing its most recent album, AB III, on October 25 with some bonus tracks and a DVD documentary. Of the bonus tracks, two of them (“Zero” and “Home”) were on my copy of the album when I bought it back in March, so I’m not really sure what the deal is with that. But there is another bonus track, “Never Born to Follow,” that I haven’t seen before. Either way, the bonus documentary sounds interesting enough. In other Alter Bridge news, the band has mentioned that they’re going to be taking 2012 off – singer Myles Kennedy will be touring with Slash, the other members will be reuniting with Creed, and lead guitarist Mark Tremonti will be doing a solo project. Then, in 2013, the band promises to get back together for a new album. Lots of stuff going on there, so keep your eyes open.
