With his solo band starting their first tour in over 30 months today, Myles Kennedy is releasing another music video from his chart-topping sophomore release, The Ides Of March (listen to the title track, here). The video for A Thousand Words finds Myles reconnecting with director Stefano Bertelli (Alter Bridge’s Native Son, and his own, In Stride video, which can be seen here) for another animated masterpiece. The video shows Myles reflecting on life at an open grave as he sings the thought-provoking lyrics, “Cause in times like these, we must live and learn.” Watch the clip below (Dana’s note: as always refresh your browser, if you are having issues viewing).

This guy is super-talented, one of my favorite singers.
I agree Doug! Alter Bridge is one of the greatest bands in the world and I believe Myles helps to make Alter Bridge much much better than Creed. Everything is better from the vocals to the music to the guitar solos, etc.
The song is OK, he is a great singer ,great range, alter bridge is also a great great band , but I think their popularity is really centered in Europe, but here just in pockets of the country , scott t. Is such an amazing guitarist and songwriter , this is one of those bands that have a great fan base but I don’t think have fully broken through , I’m not sure if they tour or record together anymore?
