Alter Bridge released a new song from their upcoming album, “Walk The Sky” which will be released on October 18th via Napalm Records, titled “Wouldn’t You Rather”. The album contains 14 songs in total is a “complete career retrospective drawing upon elements from each of the band’s previous releases to create something new.” “It’s hard to completely get away from who we are — the same four guys in the band — but everyone who’s heard the record says it has its own personality and doesn’t sound like any particular Alter Bridge record. But that being said, it’s familiar Alter Bridge territory, and Myles has said it’s kind of the answer to ‘AB III’. That was a very brooding and dark lyrical record, whereas this one is the yang to the yin of that. ‘AB III’ was kind of about a loss of faith and not believing. Myles was having a dark moment in that time and he wrote the majority of the lyrics. This is more of an enlightening, Zen kind of record. It’s not a preachy record by any means; it’s more of a free-spirited kind of thing”, says Mark Tremonti.
