Alter Bridge update posted on Myspace
Alter Bridge posted a new blog on their myspace page regarding the band's tentative schedule and Myles' solo work.
Alter Bridge hopes to resume writing their third album during the first week of December, and complete the writing by the end of January so that recording may begin in early February.
Myles is currently in the studio finishing up the tracking for his solo record. He was also recently tapped to sing on a song that will appear on Slash's solo album.
The official post, found here, is as follows:
Hello Alter Bridge Nation,
We are pleased to announce that full band writing sessions for our third album will resume in the first week of December when Myles will fly down to Florida. We hope to get the writing done by the end of January so that we may start recording in February. Mark is hard at work writing songs (he never stops) for the upcoming album as we speak. We are very excited to meet up in December and we will keep you posted when the process starts.
Right now, Myles is locked up in a recording studio until December laying down tracks for his solo project. We are all psyched to hear what our brother in music comes up with as we are sure it will be astounding. We’ll update you with more on this once Myles emerges from the studio.
For those of you who have yet to hear… Myles was tapped by none other than Slash to co-write and sing a song on Slash’s upcoming solo record. We know it was a dream come true for Myles as GNR was very influential to him. Here is a link to read some news on this…
We also want to thank all of you fans for spreading the word and keeping our Live In Amsterdam DVD in the Top Ten on Amazon.com in Music DVD’s. We do not have any new news to report on when it will be available worldwide or for digital download, other than the fact that our management says they are working on it. You never know how long all this legal stuff will take, so our advice is to take advantage of the Amazon opportunity. Here is a direct link to purchase (the DVD should work on all computers)…
The only other news that we would like to convey is that we will be back with a vengeance in 2010. Don’t listen to what anyone else says. We are all very supportive of each other in all the projects we do, but never doubt that Alter Bridge is our soul. The plan is to have a new album out for you fans in the second half of 2010. We will tour again as soon as we get the album out. Thank you, again, for being patient while Mark, Brian, Myles and Flip all work on different projects.
We’ll let you know how the writing is coming along once we all get together to work out ”ABIII” (Working Title) in the first week of December. Until then, we hope you enjoy our DVD!
