If you haven’t heard ‘My Champion,’ then you’ve missed out on the anthem of the year.” The single comes from the band’s latest release The Last Hero that was released in October and brought the band their highest first-week chart appearance since their 2004 debut. The lyric video for “My Champion” has been viewed over 1.2 million times and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/WTTkNlvrYeQ.

The Last Hero Tour wraps up in Seattle, WA on February 22nd. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.alterbridge.com/tour.

Alter Bridge burst onto the music scene in 2004 with the release of their gold-selling debut, One Day Remains. In 2007, the band released Blackbird, the album that elevated the band’s profile worldwide. The epic solo in the title track “Blackbird” was voted “Greatest Guitar Solo Of All Time” by Guitarist Magazine. ABIII was released in 2010 and the single “Isolation” gave the band their first #1 single. In 2013, the band reached an elevated creative and critical plateau with Fortress. It bowed at #12 on the Billboard Top 200, moving over 30,000 copies first-week and earning unanimous tastemaker praise. The record garnered perfect scores from Total Guitar and KERRANG! as well as acclaim from Billboard,The Guardian, Loudwire, Ultimate Guitar, and many more. In between sold out tours in Europe and North America, the guys appeared on VH1 and graced the cover of Classic Rock Magazine who labeled Fortress, “The best thing they’ve ever done,” while Eddie Trunk called it, “A top 10 album of the last 10 years.” Alter Bridge has appeared on The Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live and their music has been used by the WWE, Major League Baseball and NASCAR to name a few.  The Last Hero was just named one of Revolver Magazine’s Top 20 Albums of 2016 and Alter Bridge won Best Rock Band, Best Rock Album and Best Rock Song (“Show Me A Leader”) in the 6th Annual Loudwire Music Awards.
