Alter Bridge Hits Billboard At #13
October 24, 2007
Universal Republic Artists Alter Bridge prove it ain’t a bad thing to be good and lucky, joining an elite group of artists on Billboard’s Top 15 Album Chart this week by locking down the lucky #13 slot with their high flying debut album 'Blackbird'.

The soaring foursome’s much buzzed about opening is even more eye-popping when you consider they edged out legendary rockers like Eric Clapton and gritty icons Puddle Of Mud. Alter Bridge is celebrating the hearty welcome from rock fans in reciprocal fashion – bringing their searing brand of hard rock live to concertgoers across the U.S. on one of the fall’s most talked about tours. The former Creed members – Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips, and Brian Marshall, joined by riveting vocalist Myles Kennedy – round out Alter Bridge and are winning over critics with the same power and bombast that enlivens the songs from their sophomore album 'Blackbird'.

Joined by fellow Universal Republic rockers Another Animal, (comprised of members of Godsmack), the tour, which runs though December, has become one of the most eagerly tracked rock two-lanes on the internet, igniting rock networking sites with set-list chatter and after-show critiques from fans of the two rock bands that have set myspace sites aglow.

For Alter Bridge, 'Blackbird' is an imposing follow-up to their Gold-plus album debut 'One Day Remains'. Advancing the themes of that critically acclaimed effort, but with an even more ominous edge, the album has become a mainstay of modern rock charts and digital platforms, and includes fan-favorites such as their #1 most-added kick-off single “Rise Today,” “Break Me Down,” and “Ties That Bind,” among others.

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2005
MEMBERS:
Whit Crane - Vocals
Tony Rombola - Guitars
Vocals
Lee Richards - Guitars
Vocals
Shannon Larkin - Percussion
Vocals
Robbie Merrill - Bass

The band name couldn’t be more perfect. Another Animal features three members of Godsmack – guitarist Tony Rombola, bassist Robbie Merrill and drummer Shannon Larkin. Joining them are original Godsmack guitarist Lee Richards (ex-Dropbox) and ex-Ugly Kid Joe singer Whitfield Crane. Yet the music they’ve created for their self-titled debut is a different beast altogether.

Incorporating elements of hard rock, metal, punk and grunge, Another Animal is an eclectic tribute to the sounds the members grew up with. Recorded in a mere three weeks in Boston with engineer John Shipp, the songs resonate with newfound freedom and excitement that’s as spontaneous as it is sincere.

"It was so organic and fun to do," says Rombola. "It was a great experience because there were no preconceptions. We just did what we felt like in order to create some really cool songs without worrying about what audience it was for."
