Bridge is an American rock band that was formed in 2004 in Orlando, Florida. It consists of lead guitarist and backing vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips, all of whom are also members of Creed, alongside lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Myles Kennedy, formerly of The Mayfield Four and the frontman of Slash's current solo project. Tremonti named the group after an actual bridge that once existed on Alter Road near his former home in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan. Tremonti has emphasized that he is always writing music for both Creed and Alter Bridge. Members of Alter Bridge met in December 2012 to discuss the next album and the future tour of the band. They plan to release their fourth studio record in 2013. Mark Tremonti released a picture on his facebook page of Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti together with the caption "It begins today!!". According to their official Facebook page as of January 2013, Alter Bridge have been making their fourth studio album, with recording done, while Kennedy and Tremonti are touring with their respective projects. Alter Bridge will enter the studio again in April 2013, to produce their new album with an impending tour later in the year. In April 2013, it was announced that the band would tour Europe in October and November with special guests Halestorm and Shinedown.
