First Single Show Me A Leader Premieres On Radio Stations Worldwide

ALTER BRIDGE have announced their fifth studio album, The Last Hero, will be released October 7 through Napalm Records.
The Last Hero is the follow up to 2013's critically acclaimed Fortress, which swept into album charts worldwide - including a #6 slot in the UK, #12 in the US (Billboard 200), #7 in Germany and #4 in Austria.

The band worked with producer and longtime collaborator Michael 'Elvis' Baskette to craft the songs for The Last Hero, recently showcasing those tracks at a special listening party for fans at The Beacham club in the band's home base of Orlando, FL. The sleeve artwork was also revealed.

The first single, Show Me A Leader, has premiered via radio stations worldwide.

“Lyrically, it reflects the frustrations that a lot of people are feeling with the current state of the world,” admits Myles Kennedy about the new single.
“The world is looking for trustworthy effective leadership and not this undignified dog and pony show that’s really made a mockery of our system.”

“It’s indicative of our process,” Mark Tremonti adds. “Myles had this guitar intro that I loved, and I had the chorus. We put them together. The words call out for a proper leader.”

The band has released an exclusive video visualizer to present the single Show Me A Leader.

MARK TREMONTI Talks To Guitar International

Guitarist Mark Tremonti seeks to explore and discover new walls to breakdown in a never-ending quest to master the guitar. As he reaches the horizon of the guitar, he finds a plateau, only to find yet another world of mastery to work toward.
It’s the magic of the instrument and the essence of inventiveness and creativity and for the guitarist, an unquenchable thirst.
What separates the innovators from the followers is the courage to try something different and overcoming the challenges, to break the rules and rewrite them at every opportunity.
We all know that this was the case with guitar greats like Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, and Randy Rhoads. Mark Tremonti can be added to this list of innovators as he is finding that there are still walls in guitar playing to break down.
With his powerful and unfaltering right hand he is known for his horse galloping and string muting. With his left hand he marries sheer speed with technical intricacies. Combine that with his experimentation of tuning and prolific songwriting, there should be not doubts as to why he is a guitar player for a new generation.
He is back with his solo band and putting out the group’s sophomore CD, Cauterize, slated for release on June 9 via Fret 12 Records. The album features Mark on vocals/guitars, Eric Friedman on guitars, Wolfgang Van Halen on bass and Garrett Whitlock on drums. It’s produced by long-time friend and collaborator, Michael “Elvis” Baskette
