An extended trailer for “All I Was”, the debut solo album from ALTER BRIDGE and CREED guitarist Mark Tremonti, can be seen below.
The CD, which was released on July 17 via Fret 12 Records, a company Mark started with his brother, Daniel Tremonti, and Tom Stanley, sold more than 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 29 on The Billboard 200 chart.
United Stations‘ nationally syndicated radio show “HardDrive” recently announced the 2012 “HardDrive Live Tour” featuring TREMONTI and MAN THE MIGHTY. The fourth annual trek will begin in Flint, Michigan on September 20, and is scheduled to hit thirteen cities across North America. TREMONTI with CHARM CITY DEVILS will be doing two warm-up dates, “The Road To HardDrive”, on September 11 in West Greenwich, Rhode Island and September 12 at the Highline Ballroom in New York City.
“HardDrive” host Lou Brutus will be on hand for some of the dates.
With two bands and a solo career, The Pulse Of Radio asked Tremonti how he knows which project the songs he writes are best suited for. “I’ve just gotten this filter, this intuition that tells me what songs go to which band, and with my solo stuff, the rhythm section is so different from the other bands, I think it really stands apart,” he said. “I think it’s a little more aggressive than both the other bands, but you just have to hear it, I guess.”
His solo band, also billed TREMONTI, features ALTER BRIDGE and CREED bassist Brian Marshall in the lineup along with guitarist Eric Friedman and drummer Garrett Whitlock.
