AB III to Hit Stores in USA November 9th Featuring Hit Single “Isolation”

Los Angeles CA – Alter Bridge will release the highly anticipated AB III on Alter Bridge Recordings via EMI Label Services on November 9, 2010. Alter Bridge’s latest release, AB III, comes on the heels of their hugely successful releases “Blackbird” and “One Day Remains.”

AB III is an incredibly intense and dynamic offering proving Alter Bridge continues to grow and evolve with each album. “We went into the process of putting the record together with a lot of confidence,” band founder Mark Tremonti reveals, “but we didn’t go into it looking to be commercial, or to have radio singles. We just wanted this to be an album that pleased us artistically, through and through.”

Mike Harris EVP EMI Label Service’s comments “Alter Bridge is one of the quintessential arena artists. They write music generations can relate to. We are thrilled Alter Bridge decided to make EMI Label Services their home.”

The acclaimed band formed in 2004 by Grammy Award winning guitarist, Mark Tremonti (Creed), features front man Myles Kennedy (lead vocalist for Slash’s solo touring band and Mayfield Four) and former Creed band members, Brian Marshall and Scott Philips.

Lyrically, the first two albums are based on themes immersed in hope and perseverance in the face of adversity. On AB III, however, the theme has shifted. “This record is definitely a departure from the last two albums in terms of its subject matter. It touches on the thoughts and emotions of someone who has come to question everything that was once regarded as an absolute truth. It’s the realization that everything you once believed in might not exist.” Kennedy states.

The first single, “Isolation” is being well received at rock radio as it showcases Alter Bridge’s ability to play and write aggressively while maintaining their signature melodic component. However, Isolation is unlike previous singles in that it’s moody and features very dark lyrics.

    Well, technically in South America we’ll see the album a few days or weeks later than November 9th… but i think i’ll buy it in October 11th by Amazon or another online service like that. I wish you guys to come to Chile, you’re a great band!
    Saludos!

  4. Steven Says:

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  5. Matt Says:

    So wait….we have to wait a month later then everyone else in the world? Like is it gonna be available for everyone online Oct. 11? if not thats completely unfair to your fans in the US.

  6. Michael Says:

    Awesome…Cant wait to hear it. Come back to Oz soon…

  7. Jared Medford Says:

    I was wondering, when blackbird came out you guys signed some copies if they were pre-ordered. Will yall be doing the same with ABIII?

  8. Joe R Says:

    November 9th should be a National Holiday. I would make it Alter Day. Another rock Magna Carta from the BEST BAND EVER!

  9. Robby Says:

    Well, I am listeing to all of ABIII right now - currently to the 5th track (Still Remains). What a great record!!! Looking forward to see AB perform live on November 24!!!

  10. Joe R Says:

    The driving chorus in “Still Remains” is Utopian. It’s what every rock musician should strive for-to be at that level of excellence. The aggression in “Isolation” and the driving, rhythmic vibe like “Still Remains” chorus are the best that can be done musically in rock and roll by anyone. No one can top that.

    I pre-ordered the cd a month ago and today i allready received the cd.

    I am living in the Netherlands, so it was officially released (yesterday/tomorrow) I do think it’s strange that the USA has to wait a month longer,
    but normally Europe has to wait much longer, so for me it is good news.

    Will it be available at Spotify? That would be very nice :)

  13. Lee Says:

    I was under the impression that it was to be available in the US on October 11th? Was I misinformed? Very disappointed to say the least. Another month… not really fair. Just like the DVD, another disappointment. Not impressed man.

  14. Joseph L. Says:

    Nov. 8th is my birthday, so close, it was almost creepy.

  15. benjamin reyes Says:

    I try to go 24 hours between listens until i BUY the record lol
    call me crazy but this album has been long awaited and it is like a part of me …damn

    Can’t wait for the album’s release. Listening at NME, and love what I hear. I am a huge AB fan. Cannot wait to get the disk.
    Day’s Gone By has a little Mayfield sound to it to start, and then takes flight. Already one of my favorite AB songs.
    Sounds great so far. Keep rocking Alter Bridge!

    Ok for all of those complaining about the USA release Just go to this link and listen to it. It is high quality stream. This should settle you till the 9th and Mark had already said the US version will probably get a b-side which means extra material. They didn’t treat us unfair they’re probably working on the CD’s now. GO AB this household loves you guys
