During a recent interview with 97.7 QLZ, Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti revealed the title of the band’s new album. The effort will be called “Pawns & Kings” and it is currently set to be released on October 14.

Tremonti said the following about his current plans:

“I just got off tour with Tremonti, my solo band and we toured the States with Chris Daughtry and the day after I got home I hit the studio with Alter Bridge.

I’m in the studio now. I’ll be heading there at two o’clock today and then once we finish in the studio I’ll be prepping for the first Sinatra show which is May 14th.

Then I head over to Europe on May 27th to tour with Tremonti. The Alter Bridge record will be getting mixed during this time and setting up for an October 14th release. That record is going to be called ‘Pawns & Kings.”

Then when I’m through with that tour in Europe I hope to put together a handful of shows over in Europe with the Sinatra guys. And you know while we’re over there hit some of our biggest markets with the big band stuff and from there who knows just staying busy.”

Mark Tremonti Says Alter Bridge’s New Album “Should Come Out In September”

During a recent interview with RockSverige, Alter Bridge’s Mark Tremonti offered an update on the band’s new album. According to him, the effort “should come out in September.” He also added:

“Drums are done and bass is starting today [April 19]. I go in next week. We all went in to do pre-production. Myles [Kennedy] and I write demos and then one by one we’ll go through the demos until we’re satisfied with the record. We arranged 14 songs and then the producer’s, like, ‘Hey, here’s the moment of truth: we have to cut two of them.’ That’s the worst thing, so me and Myles were, like, ‘We’ll both cut one of the songs that we brought.'”

Tremonti commented:

“For years, I’ve loved singing along to Frank’s songs. One night, I found an old video of him performing ‘The Song Is You’ from 1944. It made me want to dive into his vocal approach. I was all in and I wanted to do something with it. When we found out about our daughter Stella’s Down syndrome diagnosis, the stars aligned. My obsession with Sinatra had its reason. Frank Sinatra raised more than a billion dollars for charity and that is a fact I wish the public the public knew more about. Beneath his cool and calm persona, he had a big heart. Doing this charity in his name was another way the stars had aligned. I decided to do this record to raise funds for families and individuals with Down syndrome. This project is the start of a new purpose that I will have for the rest of my life.”
