Alter Bridge to release new single "Addicted to Pain" on August 20

8-3-2013

Alter Bridge are set to release "Addicted to Pain", the first single off of their new album Fortress, on August 20th in the USA.  The Alter Bridge Nation originally discovered this on AllAccess.com.  Both Mark Tremonti and Alter Bridge confirmed the news when they retweeted The Alter Bridge Nation's announcement:

Interestingly, AllAccess.com lists Alter Bridge's label as "Alter Bridge/Caroline".  Fortress will be released by Alter Bridge Recordings via EMI Label Services.  Caroline is a subsidiary of Universal Music Group, through whom the band released their second record, Blackbird.  However, they terminated their contract with Universal prior to releasing their third album, AB III.  So, the mention of Caroline may be an error.

Fortress is scheduled for release on October 8th in the USA, and on various dates throughout September elsewhere across the world.  Alter Bridge recently revealed the cover art (below) and track listing for the record.  More information can be found here.
