Austria's Stormbringer.at recently conducted an interview with guitarist Mark Tremonti and drummer Scott Phillips of American rockers ALTER BRIDGE. You can now watch the chat below.
ALTER BRIDGE will hit the road for a U.S. headlining trek this fall, beginning on October 4 in Louisville, Kentucky and winding down on October 26 in Los Angeles. This is likely to be the band's final run in support of 2013's "Fortress" album. Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday (July 18) at 10:00 a.m. local time in each market.
Phillips told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that playing live is what it's all about for the quartet. "That's the reason that all of us initially got in a band, was to play," he said. "It's not about the recording process, it's not about, you know, what we're doing now, interviews and all that kind of stuff, it's about jamming."
ALTER BRIDGE is offering VIP packages on the fall tour that include a meet-and-greet and photo opportunity with the band, an autograph session, the chance to check out an ALTER BRIDGE soundcheck, priority VIP check-in, crowd-free merchandise shopping, an on-site VIP host and exclusive VIP merchandise.
Singer Myles Kennedy is currently on the road as part of Slash's band, MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS.
