Rock powerhouse Alter Bridge are no stranger to the festival scene. They’ve been establishing and growing their very loyal (and passionate!) fanbase from the ground up since 2004.
Come Jan 16-20th 2017, Alter Bridge will set their sights on taking over the high seas as part of one of the best rock cruises around, Shiprocked!
Guitarist Mark Tremonti is no stranger to the event, having performed with his other project aptly titled TREMONTI, in 2014 & 2015. This time around, however, Mark will be accompanied by his longtime bandmates: Myles Kennedy, Scott Phillips & Brian Marshall.
As we learned from Shockwave’s interview with Mark & Myles at Louder Than Life 2016, Myles confesses a slight fear of boats stating, “ever since I saw Titanic… I’m not a big fan of the idea of sinking.” (You can read more from that interview here: http://shockwavemagazine.com/alter-bridge-myles-kennedy-and-mark-tremonti-interview-at-louder-than-life-2016/) Not that he should have anything to worry about, but worst case scenario… I’m sure there are at least 1 or 2 fans who would be willing to throw him a life line!
If you are one of the lucky few (thousand) who will be in attendance and have somehow not seen Alter Bridge perform live, then I hope I don’t need to be the one to convince you to do so. They put their heart and soul into each and every performance and this should prove to be no different. The only thing I can imagine that will be disappointing about this is that I will not be there to document it! (Editor’s note: Also disappointed we’ll be missing you this year, Eric.)
In the meantime, check out Alter Bridge’s latest video for ‘My Champion,’ from the bands latest release, The Last Hero, also a personal favorite. https://youtu.be/WTTkNlvrYeQ
