ALTER BRIDGE will release its sixth studio album, Walk The Sky, on October 18 via Napalm Records. The 14-track opus marks a creative highpoint for the quartet comprised of Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums. Walk The Sky is a complete career retrospective drawing upon elements from each of the band’s previous releases to create something new.

Recorded in a fresh way, Walk The Sky was born from complete song ideas created by Kennedy and Tremonti. This material was then worked on by the entire band to develop Walk The Sky into a unique listening experience. This varies from the band’s previous method, going back to their sophomore release, Blackbird, where Kennedy and Tremonti would combine individual ideas and riffs alongside producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette to form some of their most revered songs. From the opening vocal melody on “One Life” to the moving finale of “Dying Light”, ALTER BRIDGE has 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 be released in two weeks.
