MTV conducted an interview with ALTER BRIDGE at the Rock am Ring festival, which took place June 3-5, 2011 in the German town of Nürburgring. You can now watch the chat below.
ALTER BRIDGE last month completed another national headlining tour with support from BLACK STONE CHERRY and LIKE A STORM. In addition, ALTER BRIDGE teamed up with Abbey Road Live to give fans even more access to their music. Abbey Road Live was recording select shows from ALTER BRIDGE‘s tour and was offering fans the chance to purchase that night’s show on a USB drive they can take home that night.
ALTER BRIDGE‘s latest album, “AB III”, sold 28,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at position No. 17 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released in North America on November 9, 2010 through Alter Bridge Recordings via EMI Label Services.
“AB III” is an incredibly intense and dynamic offering proving ALTER BRIDGE continues to grow and evolve with each album. “We went into the process of putting the record together with a lot of confidence,” guitarist Mark Tremonti revealed, “but we didn’t go into it looking to be commercial, or to have radio singles. We just wanted this to be an album that pleased us artistically, through and through.”
