Mark Tremonti On The Possibility Of A Creed Reunion: “We Just Have To Wait Till The Time Is Right”

During recent interview with Ghost Cult, Mark Tremonti was asked about the possibility of a Creed reunion once again. The guitarist responded with the following:

“You never know. It’s just one of those things where whenever it comes up, either our camp or Scott [Stapp] has something going on at the moment. So our stars have to align. In fact, right now if a promoter said, ‘Hey, we wanna do a huge Creed tour,’ I’d have to bypass all the stuff we’re working on at the moment. So we just have to wait till the time is right.”

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.”

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.”

Alter Bridge Planning To Enter The Studio In April 2022

“We’re doing new music first [before going back on the road]. An then me and Myles [Kennedy] will probably get together on our break in January to go over what we’ve written at that point, and then we’ll go in the studio. We have April scheduled for some studio time. I don’t know if we’ll finish things up in that time or what, but we need to get new music out before we go back on tour. It’s just been too long.”

He also added the following when asked if he has started writing new music:

“Oh, yeah. I’ve written just a few ideas, but just kind of gotten started.”

Mark Tremonti On The Possibility Of A Creed Reunion: “Right Now It’s Just Not Doable”

During an appearance on The Rock Experience With Mike Brunn, Mark Tremonti was asked about the possibility of a Creed reunion. The guitarist responded by saying that the idea is “not doable” at the moment due to his commitments to Alter Bridge and his solo project.

Trmonti said the following:

“Right now it’s almost impossible to do it. I’ve got a solo record coming out. I’m frantically trying to write another ALTER BRIDGE record, and we have touring booked all through next year, all through next Christmas. So to do a CREED tour even, we’d have to jam it in, and there’s no [way we can do it]. I leave it up to the people that run our business — from our managers to our agents to everybody involved. They are nice enough to let me be an artist and only present things that are doable when they are doable, and right now it’s just not doable.”

He also added the following when asked what it’s like to be associated with Creed:

“It’s definitely both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because I wouldn’t be sitting here talking to you right now if it weren’t for CREED; I wouldn’t have this career, this long career. But at the same time, for my entire life, I will be that guy from the band CREED, which is good and band. ‘Cause certain people loved CREED, certain people hated CREED. So no matter what I do artistically, I’m gonna be the guy who was in CREED that was, at certain points critics liked to come after us. So I’ve kind of lived in both worlds — I was in a band that sold lots of records but got some critical attacks, but I also got to be in a band that didn’t sell as many records but got critical praise. So I got to see both sides of it. It would be great to have it all in one. But it’s tough.”
