Alter Bridge to release new EP “Walk the Sky 2.0” on November 6th 2020

Alter Bridge Walk the Sky 2.0 EP cover
Since the band announced the cancellation of their entire 2020 touring schedule, Alter Bridge has taken time to do what they are known best for – creating. Never a band to take a lot of personal time off, the band reviewed live recordings from their shows in January/February 2020 to pick a few of their live favorites of songs from their latest album, “Walk the Sky”.

This led bandmembers Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips to begin sharing ideas for a new studio song. Those collective ideas would yield a new, original song entitled “Last Rites” – a track written, recorded and completed entirely during the Covid-19 lockdown. 

The final version of “Last Rites”, along with live versions of “Wouldn’t You Rather”, “Pay No Mind”, “Native Son”, “Godspeed”, “In the Deep” and “Dying Light”, will form a new 7-song EP, “Walk the Sky 2.0”, out on November 6th, 2020, via Napalm Records. See below for format configurations available for pre-order!
 
In other news, Alter Bridge have released a new single from their latest album, “Walk The Sky”, entitled “Native Son”, which has racked up over five million worldwide streams to date. In celebration of this announcement, the band have released an official video for the song. The video – an animated short created completely using stop-animation techniques and incorporating origami to create a unique visual effect – starts by following a dark figure set in a prairie farmland setting. The viewer finds the character struggling to survive as that backdrop then morphs and gives way to industrialization and a city overtaking the original landscape. The visuals echo the lyrical sentiment: “I’m a native son in a foreign land. I’m just living in a world I can’t understand”. The video for “Native Son” was created by Stefano Bertelli.

Watch the new music video for “Native Son” below.
