Alter Bridge is an American rock group located in the Orlando, Florida. Alter Bridge was established in the year 2004 by then-former members of Creed, Mark Tremonti (the lead guitar, backing vocals), Brian Marshall (the bass guitar), and the Scott Phillips (the drums), with Myles Kennedy (who is the lead vocals, rhythm and lead guitar), previously of The Mayfield Four. The group is named after an actual bridge that was situated in the Detroit near Tremontis home on Alter Road.
The bridge led to a bad division of town and the neighborhood children, who saw the other side of the bridge as the "unknown", were not having the permission to cross it. Thus, according to Tremonti, the name of the band symbolizes going into the unknown and beginning something new.
Alter Bridge introduced their first album, One Day Remains, in the Aug., the year 2004, followed by their 2nd album, Blackbird, in the Oct., the year 2007. Both of those were highly successful. The bands 3rd album cautiously titled the Alter Bridge III is lined up for a 2010 introduction. The band was established in the year 2004 by the Mark Tremonti and the Scott Phillips, both of whom were at the time previous members of the Creed, who had freshly disbanded due to affairs with singer Scott Stapp.
