As the band’s current single, Silver Tongue (listen here), moves up the Active Rock radio charts and its music video crossed a million plays in less than a month, acclaimed rockers Alter Bridge are back with another track from their upcoming album, Pawns & Kings. Sin After Sin is the latest epic track released by the quartet comprised of Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums. The song clocks in at 6:43 and is the second longest song on the new album. The lyric video can be seen below.
Pawns & Kings – the band’s seventh studio album – is scheduled for worldwide release on October 14th via Napalm Records. From the opening riffs of This Is War to the title track album closer Pawns & Kings, Alter Bridge returns with an album of intense tracks that were born after the cycle for their last album was cut short by the global pandemic. Songs like Dead Among The Living, “Holiday”  and Last Man Standing showcase the signature songwriting the band is known for. The album offers numerous epic adventures, with three songs clocking in over six minutes each. The opus Fable Of The Silent Son clocks in at 8:29 and is the longest recorded song in the band’s catalog – a distinction held by Blackbird until now. Mark Tremonti steps out of his backing vocal role to take the lead on Stay, an introspective ballad that is sure to become a fan favorite live. Known for its signature dual-guitar attack backed by a driving rhythm section, the album’s fast-rising chart-climber Silver Tongue is one of the harder songs in the band’s recent catalog. Pawns & Kings found Alter Bridge reuniting with longtime collaborator and producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette to create a collection of memorable new additions to the band’s impressive catalog.

1)   This Is War

  1. So I am arguably one of the biggest fans of Alter Bridge. I liked the title track for Pawns & Kings. But the last two songs I’m honestly just not feeling it. They’re certainly not bad songs by any means but they just aren’t generating that excitement I normally feel leading up to an Alter Bridge new album. Like when Walk The Sky & especially leading up to Fortress being released, the singles made me want more and I was not disappointed. The Last Hero was a good album overall but it also did not get me as excited as I should’ve been leading up to its release and it was a notch below Fortress (and walk the sky). I hope these songs grow on me and it turns out to be a great release. But as of right now, it’s not trending in that direction.
