Alter Bridge has released a lyric video for its new song “Last Rites” from the upcoming EP “Walk the Sky 2.0.”
The video uses a dark and mystical aesthetic with a fortune teller making a prediction based on the song’s lyrics. The song was born from an idea that band members Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips began sharing after the cancellation of their entire 2020 touring schedule. It was written, recorded and completed entirely during the COVID-19 lockdown.
“Last Rites” is available on all streaming partners, and the lyric video can be seen below.
“Walk The Sky 2.0”–available Nov. 6, 2020, via Napalm Records–comprises “Last Rites” and live versions of “Wouldn’t You Rather,” “Pay No Mind,” “Native Son,” “Godspeed,” “In the Deep” and “Dying Light,” all recorded during the band’s U.S. tour at the beginning of the year. The EP is available for pre-order in various configurations, including a Jewelcase CD (available worldwide), Jewelcase CD + t-shirt (Napalm Records exclusive worldwide except North America), and CREAM-colored Vinyl Gatefold LP (available worldwide). The album also will be available in a digital bundle with the original “Walk the Sky” and “Walk the Sky 2.0” together, as well as a limited edition 2-CD Earbook with both versions included (Napalm Records Mailorder only).
