ALTER BRIDGE burst onto the music scene in 2004 with the release of their gold-selling debut, One Day Remains. In 2007, the band released Blackbird, the album that established the band’s profile worldwide. The epic solo in the title track was voted 'Greatest Guitar Solo Of All Time' by the UK’s Guitarist Magazine. ABIII was released in 2010 and the single Isolation gave the band their first #1 radio single in the USA. The critically acclaimed Fortress was released in 2013 and achieved Top 10 status in 5 countries and Top 20 in another 5. The band’s highest worldwide chart positions to date rapidly led to arena-sized tours around the globe. When ALTER BRIDGE is on hiatus, singer Myles Kennedy can be found fronting Slash’s band, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. Guitarist Mark Tremonti released his third effort from his band Tremonti, titled Dust, in April 2016. Bassist Brian Marshall is also a respected studio musician. Drummer Scott Phillips formed Projected with John Connolly and Vinnie Hornsby of Sevendust and released their debut in 2012.
