Everything about the album

Alter Bridge has set October 9th as the release date for the new album; Blackbird.

First single is called "Rise Today". And now; here's a clip of the song: http://media.putfile.com/Alter-Bridge---Rise-Today

Here's the official lyrics for Rise Today, posted by Michael Tremonti

Quote: (Originally Posted by Rise Today) The wind is blowing cold
Think we lost our way tonight
Think we lost our hope to sorrow

Feels like were all alone
Running further from what’s right
And there are no more heroes to follow

So what are we becoming?
Where did we go wrong?

YEAH
YEAH
I WANT TO RISE TODAY AND CHANGE THIS WORLD
YEAH
YEAH
OH WON’T YOU RISE TODAY AND CHANGE THIS WORLD?

The sun is beating down
Are we ever gonna change
Can we stop the blood from running?

Our time is running out
Hope we find a better way
Before we find we’re left with nothing

For every life that’s taken
So much love is wasted

YEAH
YEAH
I WANT TO RISE TODAY AND CHANGE THIS WORLD
YEAH
YEAH
OH WON’T YOU RISE TODAY AND CHANGE THIS WORLD?

This world
Only love
Can set it right

This world
If only peace
Would never die

Seems to me that we’ve got each other wrong
Was the enemy just your brother all along?


YEAH
YEAH
I WANT TO RISE TODAY AND CHANGE THIS WORLD
YEAH
YEAH
OH WON’T YOU RISE TODAY AND CHANGE THIS WORLD?

Think that's all for now folks. For you "out of the loopers" Alter Bridge have officially left Wind-Up Records and signed with Universal Republic. And they have switched management team as well.

Re: Everything about the album

at some points the lyrics are complex; other times, they're fairly simple & Creed-ish.

Re: Everything about the album

Yeah, it's good, but I expected something heavier. This had more of a classic rock-feel to it. Also I'm not crazy about the albumtitle; Blackbird. Sounds a Guns 'N Roses/Lynyrd Skynyrd name. Sounds like a "wannabe rock title", honestly. Very impersonal!

Re: Everything about the album

This song's kinda mellow and not what I expected. It's very, well...One Day Remains-ish. If this song is a blueprint for the rest of the album it appears nothing has changed.

Who wrote this song? The song wouldn't have looked out of place on the last album - I'd guess Tremonti wrote it.

I've got nothing against the song - it sounds quite a solid effort. Lyrically nothing special.

Wikipedia definition on blackbird vocalisations:

-a mellow fluted song
-a clattering alarm call

I was kinda hoping for more of the latter definition

Re: Everything about the album

Average, kind of expected the 1st single would sound something like this. Disappointed really, wanted to be surprised by something alot more heavier. As Robin said it really feels like ODR part 2.

Re: Everything about the album

I like the song but like others have said, I expected something a lot heavier.
This song is very radio friendly, so lets hope the rest of the album is different.

Re: Everything about the album

I can't wait for you to hear the rest of this album. This is the fourth song off of the album that I have heard that wasn't played live. The other songs are amazing.... Blackbird (the 'epic') was the first that I heard and it was very emotional for me having waited so long... It's very hard to explain what those songs were like in any way that a person that plays music would want to hear, but I can say that I cried, my jaw was on my chest, my heart was in my throat, heart pounding and I literally stopped breathing during parts.
One song ... it was hard to pinpoint for me but it was really dark. The best way that I could describe it was that it reminded me of Maiden and Dio.
I wish that I was better at this.

I personally LOVE this new song. I hope that everyone will remember the reason that this song was chosen as the first release.

I hope you all will have the same awesome experience listening to the new album that I did only hearing the rough cuts. It's going to be effin' amazing.

They'll do that, just hang in there and get ready to get your balls kicked.

Don't forget they spent 3 years practically with no exposion, so they need to get their name out there so people are aware they're releasing a new album on October 9th.

The first single is always supposed to be radio friendly, but it'll do good to the band in the near future. Besides, the label probably wanted to play safe as well. Rise Today marks the transition from ODR to Blackbird.

The second single will be different, the whole album will be. I think only Watch Over You is in the same vein as Rise Today.

Besides, the song is catchy, imagine the whole crowd singing it along on the concerts.

Not to mention there's much improvement from ODR: two guitars, Mark's voice in the harmonies, the bass is louder and Flip keeps getting better.
