AB3 Update Plus Myles/Slash Tour News
Hello Alter Bridge Nation,
We wanted to let all of you know that we are in the middle of Pre-production on our third album (which we are calling AB3 for now) with our producer, Michael "Elvis" Baskette. Pre-production is the process in which we bounce all our song ideas off Elvis, finalize the arrangements, and choose which songs ultimately make the album before we record. If you would like an eyewitness report from Myles, be sure to read his blog entitled "Still in the Womb". He also breaks some news about Slash appearing on his solo project. Here is the link...
We are very excited with how the songs we wrote for our third album are turning out so far and, as of last night, we have 10 songs fully arranged. We are going to keep writing and arranging right up until we feel we are ready to record and we still have about 10 more songs that are in various stages of completion we still need to go through and finalize. The ultimate goal is to whittle it down to about 15 songs that we will end up recording. All 15 may not make the final cut on the album but we always feel it is a good idea to record a few extra songs just in case. The first day of recording is drawing closer and we will let you know when it happens in a future update.
In other news, Slash has announced on his blog that our brother in music, Myles, will be fronting Slash's Tour this spring. You can read the news here...
We are absolutely thrilled that Myles will be able to showcase his talent with one of the greatest and most influential guitarists in rock music today. After Myles finishes laying down the vocal tracks for our third album, he will join Slash for this tour and then will re-join us in time for our own planned tour of Europe in October. We support Myles 100% in his upcoming road adventures with Slash and we're looking forward to hearing his upcoming album.
But right now, finishing the pre-production on our third album is very important to us so we are going to get back to it. Stay tuned for further updates and please know that we read all the comments that are left for us so fire away.
