As the debut track “Wouldn’t You Rather” becomes the next Top 20 Active Rock single in the band’s career, Alter Bridge have dropped another lyric video and song from their upcoming release Walk The Sky (October 18th via Napalm Records).
“In The Deep” is now available on all digital service providers around the globe and the underwater-themed lyric video for the track can be seen here:
The song opens with a driving intro that breaks down to an inspirational verse and powerful chorus that has become a calling card for Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums. Walk The Sky, the band’s 6th studio album, is produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette.
For over 15 years, Alter Bridge has been a band known for blurring the line between hard rock and heavy metal. Recorded in a way never done before, the album was born from complete song ideas created by Kennedy and Tremonti. These songs would then be worked on by the entire band to create the fourteen songs that would make Walk The Sky the listening experience it is. 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 the band’s most revered songs.
From the opening vocal melody on “One Life” to the moving finale of “Dying Light,” Alter Bridge have created a formidable addition to their 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.”
