You'll want to crank this one up! Alter Bridge are ready to drop a new song from their upcoming album, The Last Hero, and they've teamed up with Loudwire to exclusively bring you the track "Poison in Your Veins."

After Scott Phillips' opening cymbals, you're met with a wall of guitar heaviness from Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy as they, Phillips and bassist Brian Marshall blast your ears with an infusion of high octane rock before Kennedy's vocals bring lyrical life to the track.

“This song showcases the inner dialogue in one’s head; serving as a reminder to live life courageously, take chances, and ultimately believe in yourself. It’s not a new theme for us, but definitely one that can never be overstated," explains Kennedy, while Tremonti adds, “We wanted to make it as musically interesting as possible, while preserving a hook.”

As stated, "Poison in Your Veins" is featured on Alter Bridge's upcoming album, The Last Hero, which is due in stores Oct. 7. The album also features the current single "Show Me a Leader" as well as the preview track "My Champion." You can pre-order the disc in a variety of physical formats and bundle options at this location, or digitally here.

Alter Bridge are currently on tour in the U.S. through Oct. 10, then will take a bit of a break before heading off to Europe to finish the year. They will start their 2017 touring with an appearance on the ShipRocked Cruise in January. See all of their scheduled dates here.
