Alter Bridge finish tracking fourth album, other details revealed
Alter Bridge have finished tracking their fourth album, according to a Tweet by Mark Tremonti on July 2nd. The band began recording the album on April 26th, and since then the guys have been in and out of the studio as their schedules permit to finish up the tracking process. The album is once again being procued by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, who also produced Blackbird and AB III, as well as Mark's solo album, All I Was. The new record will contain thirteen tracks, including one on which Mark sings lead vocals.
Mark's Tweet, shown below, also includes a classic whiteboard photo, illustrating that each band member's completed parts. The band have released similar photos during the recording of their previous albums, but the song titles are typically obscured, which serves to build hype for each record.
With tracking complete, the album is now in the process of being mixed. Producer "Elvis" Baskette is handling the mixing, unlike previous albums which were mixed by other personnel. A Tweet from Mark yesterday revealed that eleven of the thirteen tracks have been mixed. Once mixing is complete, the record will begin the mastering process.
In a recent interview with Music Radar, Mark provided some of the most detailed information on the new album to date. This includes:
Alter Bridge are embarking on a massive European tour this fall, with Shinedown and Halstorm in support. Prior to that, the band will play a single USA date, which will be announced this Monday. Click here to view Alter Bridge's current tour schedule.
