Guitarist Mark Tremonti comments:

Gearing up for AB V, we are happy to be able to offer our fans a few of the things they have asked us for in the past. As a band we also tried to come up with a few unique items which I feel are the ultimate collector’s items!

Vocalist/guitarist Myles Kennedy adds,:

We are very excited to offer these exclusive and unique opportunities for the ALTER BRIDGE fans as we begin the next chapter of our journey!

Alter Bridge burst onto the music scene in 2004 with the release of their gold-selling debut, One Day Remains. In 2007, the band released Blackbird, the album that established the band’s profile worldwide. The epic solo in the title track was voted ‘Greatest Guitar Solo Of All Time’ by the UK’s Guitarist Magazine. ABIII was released in 2010 and the single ‘Isolation’ gave the band their first #1 radio single in the USA. The critically acclaimed Fortress was released in 2013 and achieved Top 10 status in 5 countries and Top 20 in another 5, collectively the band’s highest worldwide chart positions to date; sending them on a number of international arena-sized tours. When Alter Bridge is on hiatus, singer Myles Kennedy can be found fronting Slash’s band, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. Guitarist Mark Tremonti will soon be releasing his third effort from his band Tremonti, titled Dust, in April 2016. Scott Phillips formed Projected with John Connolly and Vinnie Hornsby of Sevendust and released their debut in 2012.
