ALTER BRIDGE have announced their fifth studio album, The Last Hero, will be released in Australia on October 7 through Napalm Records/Rocket. The Last Hero is the follow up to 2013’s critically acclaimed Fortress, which swept into album charts worldwide – including a #6 slot in the UK, #12 in the US (Billboard 200), #7 in Germany and #4 in Austria.
Pre-orders are available in Australia via Nerve Gas
The first single, Show Me A Leader, has premiered via radio stations worldwide.
“Lyrically, it reflects the frustrations that a lot of people are feeling with the current state of the world,” admits Myles Kennedy about the new single. “The world is looking for trustworthy effective leadership and not this undignified dog and pony show that’s really made a mockery of our system.”
“It’s indicative of our process,” Mark Tremonti adds. “Myles had this guitar intro that I loved, and I had the chorus. We put them together. The words call out for a proper leader.”
The band has released an exclusive video visualizer to present the single Show Me A Leader.
