Alter Bridge Land A Lucky 13

posted October 24, 2007

Alter Bridge Land A Lucky 13Universal Republic Artists Alter Bridge prove it ain’t a bad thing to be good and lucky, joining an elite group of artists on Billboard’s Top 15 Album Chart this week by locking down the lucky #13 slot with their high flying debut album Blackbird.

The soaring foursome’s much buzzed about opening is even more eye-popping when you consider they edged out legendary rockers like Eric Clapton and gritty icons Puddle Of Mud. Alter Bridge is celebrating the hearty welcome from rock fans in reciprocal fashion – bringing their searing brand of hard rock live to concertgoers across the U.S. on one of the fall’s most talked about tours. The former Creed members – Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips, and Brian Marshall, joined by riveting vocalist Myles Kennedy – round out Alter Bridge and are winning over critics with the same power and bombast that enlivens the songs from their sophomore album Blackbird.

“One of the greatest things to happen to hard rock since David Lee Roth joined Van Halen” raved Metal Edge. Joined by fellow Universal Republic rockers Another Animal, (comprised of members of Godsmack), the tour (which runs though December) has become one of the most eagerly tracked rock two-lanes on the internet, igniting rock networking sites with set-list chatter and after-show critiques from fans of the two rock bands that have set MySpace sites aglow.
