Alter Bridge will be hitting arenas from one end of Europe to the other this winter, and they’re bringing quite the bunch of support acts. The line-up varies a little but for the UK these will be Volbeat, Gojira and Like a Storm.
Volbeat will be touring in support of the rather excellent Seal the Deal and Let’s Boogie and I doubt we’ll see them touring again until well into 2017, so fans of the band may well be inclined to go and see them with Miles and Co. Gojira, also, have a recent release which is going down incredibly well – Magma. Either of these bands could easily be headlining venues of the next size bracket down – this looks like a great value for money package.
Like a Storm are the relative unknowns on the package, but will be getting some great experience from the trip as they will be coming in all the way from New Zealand. They’re currently touring the US with Slipknot so they must know what they’re doing!
Alter Bridge themselves are scheduled to release a new album, their first through their new deal with Napalm Records, in October so expect some new tunes from them as well.
