Myles Kennedy discusses Alter Bridge’s new album and stripped down solo offerings

Myles Kennedydiscusses Alter Bridge’s new album and stripped down solo offerings.

Two days before speaking to us about his cinematic debut, Myles Kennedy and his bandmates in Alter Bridge gave 350 fans and close friends at The Beacham in Orlando, FL a special treat. Not only did they perform a set of fan favorites, but hosted a listening party to their new album The Last Hero, due out on October 7. “We’re really excited with how it turned out, and with the response so far,” Kennedy told us following the listening party. “It was a lot of work, as they always are, but we’re happy with the outcome. This morning, SiriusXM’s Octane channel debuted the album’s first single, “Show Me A Leader,” and it can be streamed on the satellite service’s website now.
Kennedy also gave us a deeper look into the lyrical theme behind Alter Bridge’s last album during our conversation. He also provided an update on his long-awaited solo record, and discussed how he approaches recording with Alter Bridge differently than with Slash. Check out what the powerhouse singer had to share below, and catch Alter Bridge on tour with Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin this summer. 

The band just signed with Napalm Records in Europe. Is that an indicator of any label changes in the U.S./North America?
We went with Caroline here [in North America, as part of the band’s own imprint Alter Bridge Recordings]. They’ve done a great job, and now we’ve got Napalm doing the rest of the world. It’s still pretty early in the game, but they both have expressed very passionate interest in the band, which we were hoping to see because obviously you’re putting your career in the hands of total strangers. So yeah, right now we’re at the beginning stages of our relationship.
