Alter Bridge - My Champion

The American rock band ALTER BRIDGE is out on tour and make a stop at Annexet, Stockholm, Sweden for a show. With them they have the brand new studio album "The Last Hero". Support on tour is LIVING, see the dates below.

The Last Hero was written during the winter of 2015 while both singer Myles Kennedy and guitarist Mark Tremonti were on tour with their respective projects, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators and Tremonti, with the recording process being finished during the spring of 2016. Regarding the sound of the album, Tremonti stated it to be similar to Fortress and Blackbird but they were planning on darker sound. The album name comes from the subject of being a hero in society and people's feelings of disillusionment with their current leaders. It also marks a departure from the band's previous visual style, with the grungy aesthetic of previous albums replaced with a more streamlined logo.

Today's tune "My Champion" is taken from Alter Bridge's new album "The Last Hero". "The lyric was actually inspired by thinking back to my situation as a kid," Myles says. "I was this really small, underdeveloped kid who had to work extremely hard to keep up with all of my peers. It was very frustrating. I would hear a lot of words of encouragement from parents, coaches, or teachers though. A lot of those things were stored away, and they manifested themselves in this song. I've been able to apply some of those concepts in my life a thousand times over since then."
