Mark Tremonti Talks Alter Bridge, Future Solo Project Plans + More With Loudwire Radio

Mary Ouellette, SheWillShootYou.com The man of many bands, guitarist Mark Tremonti , will be the special guest on this weekend’s Loudwire Radio show with host Mike ‘Sandman’ Sanders. The rocker took the time to discuss his solo band, Creed and Alter Bridge . Tremonti, the band, are currently winding down their North American dates, with the final show scheduled for March 5 in West Hollywood. Meanwhile, Alter Bridge recently announced that they’d be releasing a new album and touring in 2013. Find out the latest on all of Tremonti’s project, including some big news about bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, in the Q&A with Sandman below: Can you share the backstory on the new Tremonti single ‘Wish You Well’ with us? Well, that song is probably the oldest song that I’ve ever put on a record. I started writing it back in 7th or 8th grade and had demos made of it, then I made another demo for the first Alter Bridge record but it never made the record. So, I’ve been waiting for this song a long time to finally get it out there. Obviously people know you from being the guitarist in Creed and Alter Bridge, but your solo album has done really well. How long was the album in the planning in your thoughts, as far as going out and putting your own record out? For years, I knew I had a lot of song ideas that would never see the light of day unless I did something about it. And then when I saw my schedule open up when Myles left on the Slash tour for about three months, I just kind of decided that was when I was going to get busy and record those ideas. We should mention that the album is titled ‘All I Was’ and, although he’s not on the album, he is on tour with you: Wolfgang Van Halen . Are you going to return him to his father someday or are you going to adopt him and keep him? He’s going to be an official member of the band. He’ll be on our next album and doing all the tours, it’s just … we’re going to have to … just like we work around the Alter Bridge schedule, this year we’ll have to work around the Van Halen schedule, as well. Fantastic. Now, I know you’re on tour for a little bit longer. What is the time table, as far as, heading back into the studio to work on your next Tremonti album? I’m not sure right now. I’m really focused on getting this Alter Bridge record written and finalized and getting to the studio and then once things die down a little bit from that I’ll see if I’ve got any breaks — again, probably when Myles is out with Slash — to get going on writing another Tremonti record. I know there was a report at Loudwire.com that had you and Myles in the studio together for at least a brief time in between his U.S. tour with Slash and then him going overseas. So, you guys have gotten a little bit of work done I’m assuming? Yeah, we’ve got about five songs that I think are album worthy and ready to go to pre-production at this point. And I guess my next question would be about your other band — the first band that brought you to prominence is Creed. Is there a future for that band? Do you see putting out another record with those guys? Well, we just toured extensively last year with Creed and did about all the touring we could do in the States and we went to South America and Indonesia and I think I’m going to take a rest from Creed and get back with some Alter Bridge music and see what happens from there. Also, I noted that you recently visited some U.S. troops over in Germany, and I’m sure that meant a lot to them. What does that mean to you, to be able to go out and support our Armed Forces? Any time you can make [members of the military] happy by just showing up and shaking some hands and talking to folks, it’s a great thing. It’s just part of one of the bonuses of what we do. People like meeting their favorite musicians and when you can go and visit somebody that’s away from their family and risking their lives for you … to make them happy, I’m all about it. Editor’s note: Tremonti just revealed to Entertaim.net that Alter Bridge are currently planning to start production on their forthcoming disc in April, with tentative plans to tour this fall.

Dave Grohl Performs With Stevie Nicks and Sound City Players on ‘Late Show With David Letterman’

CBS Dave Grohl is making the talk show rounds this week, hitting up ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ to discuss and promote his ‘Sound City’ documentary. After an appearance on ‘Colbert’ earlier this week, last night (Feb. 14) was Letterman’s turn. During his interview with Letterman, Grohl recalled his first experience with the Sound City studio in Los Angeles, recording Nirvana ‘s ‘Nevermind’ album there in 1991. He explained, “We booked into that studio cause it was cheap. It was $600 a day and they were sort of kind of past their prime and their heyday. In ’73, they were state of the art, brown shag carpet on the walls was cool, but by 1991 it was not. So we walked in and it was a dump. It looked like a burned out Chi-Chi’s.” However, Grohl said the sound of the studio was undeniable and they got the “big” feel they were hoping for when recording the classic ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit.’ He adds, “The 16 days we were there changed my life forever. ” In addition, Nirvana drummer-turned- Foo Fighters frontman added a performance to his ‘Letterman’ appearance, bringing out his ‘Sound City Players’ with Fleetwood Mac ‘s Stevie Nicks on vocals for ‘You Can’t Fix This’ from the film’s soundtrack. Nicks has a history with the Sound City studios as well, first meeting Mick Fleetwood there prior to she and Lindsey Buckingham joining the band. The group also recorded some of their finest music at the studio.

Five Finger Death Punch Eye Summer 2013 Release for Next Album

Instagram: Zoltan Bathory Five Finger Death Punch have been working on new music and fans will be happy to know that there’s now a target date for the band’s next album. Guitarist Zoltan Bathory reveals via a series of Instagram posts that 5FDP are currently recording songs in the studio and aiming for a summer 2013 release. Bathory’s photos, which can be seen here , here , and here , show him having fun jamming with the band in the studio, one with the comment, “Recording the new album. Out this summer.” Another pic teases in its caption, “At the recording studio tracking guitars for new #fivefingerdeathpunch album … Out 2013 summer – the title is … .” Bathory’s photo postings go along with drummer Jeremy Spencer’s recent comments that the band had been “cocooned up” working on a new album. In addition, guitarist Jason Hook revealed last summer that the band had taken a recording rig with them on their tour. At the time, Hook stated, “The idea behind that is just to keep the creative muscle worked out. It’s just like going to the gym; if you stop for a year, you lose all your strength. It’s easy to get lazy and get sort of soft. We’re in the business of making music; touring is great, but we should always be prepared and always exercising that creative muscle — in my opinion, anyway.” He also added that they had “six to eight songs” worked up at that point for when they headed into the studio. Hook said the preparation would make things easier once they hit the studio and gave them plenty of options to work with when it came time to record. 5FDP’s new disc will be the follow-up to 2011′s ‘American Capitalist,’ which has yielded such singles as ‘Under and Over It,’ ‘Remember Everything’ and current hit ‘The Pride.’ [button href=”http://loudwire.com/five-finger-death-punch-the-pride-video/” title=”Next: Watch Five Finger Death Punch’s Video for ‘The Pride'” align=”center”]

David Draiman Explains Disturbed Hiatus, Produces New Trivium Album

Ethan Miller, Getty Images David Draiman is an incredibly busy man at the moment. Along with creating the debut album for his new industrial band  Device , the vocalist is currently in the studio with Trivium to help produce the metal band’s next album. Draiman also recently gave an update about the on-hiatus Disturbed , revealing, “The beast certainly is not dead — it’s just sleeping for a little while.” During an interview with Artisan News  (watch below), Draiman spoke about the relationships he shares with his Disturbed bandmates and stresses that personal differences were not a factor in the band’s hiatus. “We’re all on great terms and we continue to have a very, very huge mutual respect and admiration for another; we check in on each other’s families,” Draiman says. “This was not a hiatus that was brought about by bad blood, this was not a hiatus that was brought about by any sort of legality or for me to decide to start a family or any of the rest of the nonsense that gets thrown out there. All the rest of the guys have families and we’ve been touring on the road with them the entire damn time. So one has nothing to do with the other.” Disturbed’s John Moyer is currently lending his talents to Adrenaline Mob, while Draiman reveals that guitarist Dan Donegan and drummer Mike Wengren may be working on a side project of their own. As mentioned, when not working on the upcoming debut album from Device, Draiman is also producing the next Trivium record. Draiman’s gig behind the soundboard was revealed by Metal Injection after photos of Draiman in the studio with Trivium were posted by the band. After Metal Injection asked, “Is David Draiman producing your new album?” Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto responded, “Yes sir, we just started pre pro in Austin.” Stay tuned for more news on Disturbed, Device, Trivium and all things David Draiman.
