Since ALTER BRIDGE announced the cancellation of their entire 2020 touring schedule, members Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips have taken time to do what they are known best for – creating. Now, they are back with their new EP, Walk The Sky 2.0, to be released on November 6 via Napalm Records.
I’m not really a fan of live albums, but ‘Walk The Sky 2.0’ is a testament to the quality of Alter Bridge’s live performance awesomeness. Their new studio cut, Last Rites, is along the hard rock lines that the band often puts together. Having been to several Alter Bridge shows, I did get a feel for “being there” while listening to this release. It really drives home the feeling of missing so many shows in 2020 and ‘Walk The Sky 2.0’ had me really missing the whole experience. I sure hope that we can get back to live shows in 2021. – Sean Varvel
