Alter Bridge Recording Update (With Photos)

Hello Alter Bridge Nation,

The recording process is moving forward and we could not be more excited about the songs that we are creating. Flip has finished all of his drum tracking and Brian will be finished recording all of his bass tracks by the end of this evening. Then, starting this weekend, Mark and Myles will begin recording guitars.

Our fearless manager, Steve Wood, snapped a few photos while down here in Miami and we thought that we would share them with you. First up, a view from the air of where we are recording.



Here are the how the drums were set up before Flip started recording...



Tony Adams (Drum Tech) and Flip survey the scene...



Flip gets ready to start tracking...



Our producer, Elvis, rules his domain...



Mark stares at Flip transfixed by his mighty drum skills...



Meanwhile, Brian works out his bass part on a song...



Mark finally begins to rock. (Sorry about it being a bit blurry. Steve may have been shaking with excitement)...



And Myles gets completely surprised...



That is all we have got for now. Very few people have heard the songs we are working on (not even our record label) and we are very proud of what we are creating. The word used most to describe what we are creating is dark. We can not wait to unleash our songs on the world later this year. And... we have received word that our tour in October will begin in the UK. We will update you further as more news comes in and also keep you up to date on the recording process so check back soon.

Keep rocking,

Alter Bridge
