I doubt many of you regular readers will know (unless you cheated and checked my Last.fm) that Alter Bridge are one of my all time favourite bands. So it has pleased me no end to see this latest press release over at AlterBridgeBand.net:
“We are proud to announce that the entire recording process on our third album is completely finished. All of the seventeen songs we worked so hard on have been recorded, painstakingly mixed and we now hold the final mastered versions in our possession. These songs have turned out even better then we could have imagined and we are fiercely proud of the efforts of everyone involved that made our vision a reality.”
“We want all of our fans to know that we created these songs with no outside influence whatsoever, just like we did with the One Day Remains and Blackbird albums. And, like the Blackbird album, we financed our latest project with our own funds, without the support of our current record label. We want you to know that our artistic vision is never compromised and that the songs you will hear later this year are exactly what we have intended. We can not wait to unleash this new album on the world.”
Trust me guys, we can’t wait either.
I thought I’d upload something to accompany this post, and the first track that sprung to mind was In Loving Memory which is a song that has taken on a new meaning for me in the past year. Enjoy.
