Alter Bridge have announced that their seventh studio album, Pawns & Kings, will arrive on October 14th via Napalm Records. In advance of the release, they’ve unveiled the title track.
The band — which features singer Myles Kennedy alongside guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips — worked with longtime collaborator and producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette to create the set, which features 10 new songs.
The hard-rocking “Pawns & Kings” is the closing track off the album, with the lyric video streaming below.
According to a press release, one of the highlights of the album is Tremonti singing leads on the ballad “Stay.” The guitarist heads up his own eponymous band and recently released a charity album of Frank Sinatra covers, so he’s becoming a seasoned vocalist himself.
Alter Bridge will also be touring extensively to promote the new album. The band previously announced a tour of Europe for November and December with Halestorm and Mammoth WVH, and they’re expected to announce North American dates soon.
