In 2004, Alter Bridge emerged from the demise of Creed. With the release of its Wind Up Records debut, “One Day Remains,” Alter Bridge went about collecting a loyal fan base that included longtime fans of Creed as well as newcomers to the band’s post-grunge sound.
Alter Bridge will be filling the evening with crowd-favorite selections from its catalog as well as new cuts from the band’s upcoming release, “Walk the Sky.” The group has provided a preview in the form of four singles. Tracks such as “Take the Crown” and “Wouldn’t You Rather” are a fresh taste of the band’s edgy brand of intelligent mainstream metal.
Local favorite Skillet is lending support for this tour. Even though this band maintains a solid Christian foundation, this quartet’s melodic, new-school metal shows no mercy. “Victorious” is the latest album from Skillet. This group’s tendency for creating intricate, symphonic metal has not tarnished over the years. Those who have yet to witness this band in a live environment should expect just as much intensity as Skillet’s studio album.
Dirty Honey completes this three-band bill. This group has built its sound on a foundation of classic ’80s metal. Dirty Honey comes to Mobile with a self-titled debut EP in hand. Newcomers to Dirty Honey’s sound should expect AC/DC vocals with Van Halen arrangements.
