Alter Bridge have announced their biggest ever tour, with European arena shows set to tale place this winter. Bringing along with them Danish rockers Volbeat, French technical metalers Gojira and rising stars Like A Storm, the trek is set to include seven shows across the U.K. Their biggest headline shows yet, the twenty-four date tour will hit fifteen countries, and kicks off on November 4, 2016.
The tour is set to be preceded by the release of the quartet's fifth studio album. Produced by Michael 'Elvis' Baskette, Alter Bridge’s new disc is planned for release in October 2016, via Napalm Records. 'Fortress', the band’s widely acclaimed 2013 album, swept into charts worldwide - including the U.K. at #6, USA at #12 (Billboard 200), Germany at #7, and Austria at #4.
Special guests include Danish rockers, Volbeat, who released their sixth album, 'Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie', earlier this month. French metal group, Gojira, will be giving fans a taste of their crushing new album, Magma, and up-and-comers, Like A Storm, jet in from New Zealand to get the party started.
