Alter Bridge Reveal ‘The Last Hero’ Album Details, ‘Show Me a Leader’ Lyric Video
Alter Bridge are on their way back. The band recently revealed that The Last Hero will be the title of their fifth studio album and now we have a full track listing as well as the lead single. The group just unveiled the song "Show Me a Leader" and there's a lyric video to go along with it (watch above).
The Last Hero album is due Oct. 7 via Caroline Records in the U.S. and Canada and Napalm Records throughout the rest of the world. The 13-track album will be available in a variety of fan bundles via the band's online webstore and fans can get exclusive early access to ticket pre-sales by ordering any item in the store. It's now available for pre-order on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play as well.
As for "Show Me a Leader," it's a high energy rocker that speaks to the band's desire to see someone who can guide us through the difficult times. Vocalist Myles Kennedy states, "Lyrically, it reflects the frustrations that a lot of people are feeling with the current state of the world. The world is looking for trustworthy effective leadership and not this undignified dog and pony show that's really made a mockery of our system."
Guitarist Mark Tremonti adds, "It's indicative of our process. Myles had this guitar intro that I loved, and I had the chorus. We put them together. The words call out for a proper leader." Check out the lyric video for the song, which utilizes a red, tan and black color scheme, above.
Alter Bridge have been touring with Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin and Saint Asonia and will graduate to headlining shows this fall. See all of their upcoming dates here.
