ALTER BRIGE have revealed the artwork for their upcoming album, simply titled “AB III.” The band’s third album is to be released on October 11, 2010 in Europe and possibly one day later internationally. Michael Baskette, who also produced the band’s previous album “Blackbird” handled all production duties for the record. In recent interviews, the band has described the new music as heavy and dynamic and the lyrics as very dark.

ALTER BRIDGE plans to hit the road in October after the album is out, starting with a European tour.

A spring 2011 supporting slot with GODSMACK is planned for next March.

Kennedy is currently touring with Slash as his live lead vocalist, after singing two numbers on the guitarist’s debut solo album.

The instrumental members of ALTER BRIDGE are touring this summer in their other band, CREED.
