Tremonti – Cauterize
Alter Bridge’s Mark Tremonti has confirmed his second solo release with his band Tremonti, following the worldwide success of the 2012 debut ‘All I Was’. The new album ‘Cauterize’ features Mark Tremonti on vocals/guitars, Eric Friedman on guitars, Wolfgang Van Halen on bass and Garrett Whitlock on drums. ‘Cauterize’ was produced long-time friend and collaborator Michael “Elvis” Baskette. “We are extremely excited for the fans to hear this album,” enthuses frontman Mark Tremonti. “We feel it’s our best work to date.”
From the first riffs of album opener ‘Radical Change’ to the final notes of epic closer ‘Providence’, it’s apparent that Mark Tremonti’s songwriting has reached a new level. His unmistakable hard rock and heavy metal influences shine throughout the album, particularly on songs like ‘Flying Monkeys’, ‘Arm Yourself’, and ‘Sympathy’. The debut single from ‘Cauterize’ is up-tempo track ‘Another Heart’. The song was recently released on iTunes and promptly shot straight into the Top 5 of the iTunes US Rock Singles Chart. A second companion album of all new material from TREMONTI called ‘Dust’ has also been completed and more information on that will be revealed in coming weeks.

Having sold over 40 million records globally, crafting colossal rock hits and performing at some of the world’s most famous arenas, his recognizable sound has garnered a loyal and growing fan base worldwide.
