Creed recently kicked off their tour celebrating the 15th anniversary of their debut disc ‘My Own Prison,’ but guitarist Mark Tremonti is gearing up for a milestone of his own later this summer. On July 12 Tremonti will release his debut solo disc titled ‘All I Was.’
Samples of three of his solo tunes were recently released. Listen to clips of ‘So You’re Afraid,’ ‘The Things I’ve Seen,’ and ‘You Waste Your Time’ below to see what’s in store. With a heavier sound than both of Tremonti’s other gigs (don’t forget he also plays in Alter Bridge), Tremonti called it a melody-driven disc that’s more up-tempo and heavy riffing.
Tremonti will also be breaking ground in another area, for the first time he’s singing lead on the disc. He toldIHeartGuitarBlog.com that it was a challenge, explaining, “I’ve always been a songwriter, so I’ve sung while I was playing, but I write in my falsetto, so I’m hitting very high notes and all over the place, but I’ve always had a low range, so for my solo stuff I tune it way down.” He also talked about working up the courage to just go for it, saying, “Y’know, I just never had the confidence before. I think the more I’ve sang over the years, the more I’ve developed the confidence in my voice, and I’m finally ready to do it on my own. But it’s a whole different world.”
In addition to Tremonti on vocals and guitar, the band also features Eric Friedman on guitar, Brian Marshall on bass and Garrett Whitlock on drums.

James Schmid from Waterloo, Ontorio. Alter Bridge provides everything you'd expect from a rock radio hit, while also giving die hard AB fans everything they expect from their beloved band with My Champion.
The song opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Def Leppards "Photograph" before hitting you square in the face with a "heavy for radio" sound that remains catchy without disappointing their "we like it fast and hard" fans. Their fan base, and music ranges in such a wide spectrum, it…
the colorful and music inspired Minneapolis, Minnesota comes the
unique blend of female fronted Metal/Rock/Industrial that is Gabriel And The Apocalypse. The
band delivers a fierce yet beautiful array of female fronted aggression that
will give their predecessors a run for their money.
brainchild of vocalist Lindy Gabriel, Gabriel And The Apocalypse independently
put out 2 releases which were backed by numerous national support tours around
the United States. Their intense and and professional style videos also paved
the way for the group to become an underground sensation. It was this
self produced success that led GATA to ink a deal with Pavement Entertainment
to which they immediately began work on their new album "The Ghost Parade". This new release (available October 7, 2016) is sure to propel the
band to new heights with major worldwide distribution and exposure. To kick off
the album's release GATA will tour with horror rock favorite Wedn…
