Alter Bridge Unleash Live ‘Cradle to the Grave’ Video
Alter Bridge have built a legion of fans while putting on killer live shows over the years, and with their latest video for "Cradle to the Grave," you get to see a bit of that up close.
Though Alter Bridge can power through songs with the best of them, "Cradle to the Grave" starts off in a more solemn and moody headspace, eventually building to the chorus where they accentuate the power of Myles Kennedy's voice complimented with a driving rock sound.
The clip itself showcases the band performance, shot in black in white, in which you can feel the energy exuding from the band while the fans are equally locked in singing along, raising their hands skyward to clap and nodding along to the music. Check out the video above.
The "Cradle to the Grave" video helps the band make the transition from highlighting The Last Hero album, which also features the song, to promoting their upcoming concert-based live album and rarities collection titled Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities. The band recorded their show at the historic London-based venue last November and have turned it into a three-disc package that's arriving for fans on Sept. 8. You can pre-order the collection here.
Speaking of London, Alter Bridge are set to return to play the iconic Royal Albert Hall on Oct. 2 and 3 while backed by the 52-piece Parallax Orchestra conducted by Simon Dobson. Both shows sold out in less than seven minutes, which is a record for the band. In addition to the London shows, the band is currently in the midst of a European trek and will play a handful of U.S. dates in August and South American shows in September.
