Alter Bridge Pay Tribute To COVID-19 Frontline Workers With “You Will Be Remembered” Video

Alter Bridge have released a new video for “You Will Be Remembered” in honor of the workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. That track appears on the band’s 2016 album “The Last Hero.” The group commented:

“We wrote ‘You Will Be Remembered‘ as a tribute to anyone who gives themselves in service to others. In this current climate, those stories are around us every day and we just wanted to offer our own small visual tribute to some of those people. There are numerous stories and we want to thank everyone that is doing their part to get us through this unprecedented time. Thank You.”

Alter Bridge Postpone Spring Tour With Black Stone Cherry & Saint Asonia

Alter Bridge have postponed their spring tour with Black Stone Cherry and Saint Asonia due to the coronavirus pandemic. The shows will be rescheduled at a later date.

Alter Bridge commented:

“We hoped that it wouldn’t come to this, but as some of you have already heard unfortunately, due to recent changes around the globe created by the recent Covid-19 situation, the May headline tour of the United States with Black Stone Cherry and Saint Asonia will be postponed.

The health and safety of everyone attached to these shows (fans, artists, crew members, venue staff, etc) is our main priority. More information regarding rescheduled dates will be available in the future.

We look forward to the time when we can all come together and celebrate music as the community and family we are. Until then, Stay Home, Stay Healthy and Stay Safe…”

Sevendust’s Morgan Rose Hospitalized, Band Drop Off UK Tour With Alter Bridge & Shinedown

Sevendust have revealed that their drummer Morgan Rose is currently sick in the hospital. As a result, the band have been forced to drop off their UK tour with Shinedown and Alter Bridge.

Sevendust commented:

“U.K. Family –

It is with a heavy heart we have to say that we will not be able to join our brothers in Alter Bridge & Shinedown on the upcoming U.K. tour dates on the #WalkTheSkyTour.

Morgan is sick, in the hospital and under Doctor orders not to move or leave the country.

We WILL make it up to you all!

See you guys at the Acoustic Xmas shows.

Best,
7D”

UPDATE: Trevor Omar, who works for Rose’s Alien Freak Wear clothing line, also commented on his condition:

“Hey, everyone. Just wanted to pop on here will quick and post a message. First I want to thank everyone for keeping Morgan in your thoughts and prayers. Believe me it is truly appreciated.

I know everyone would like an update & information as to what is going on, but all I can say for right now is that Morgan is in the hospital & stable. We will hopefully have a more clear idea of what’s next tomorrow. So unfortunately there isn’t many details that I or anyone else can give. Once there are details available to give, it will he passed on in the proper channels. And please do not believe something unless it comes from one of those channels.

All the messages of support have been amazing, but unfortunately I cannot respond to each message. I am sorry. And just speaking for myself, I can only imagine how many messages everyone in 7D & MGT have received also. Please, be aware that it will be really difficult for anyone to respond to messages at this time. And that we all thank you for your love and support or Morgan.

As soon as there is information that is able to be passed on, it will be. Trust me.

Again, Thank You for all your Love & Support.”
