Guitarist/songwriter Mark Tremonti, best known as the lead guitarist of Alter Bridge and Creed, will release “Marching in Time,” the fifth album from his solo band, Tremonti, on Sept. 24, 2021, via Napalm Records. Pre-orders are available here.
While the previous Tremonti album, “A Dying Machine” (2018), was an overall concept album seeped in darker sentiments and story, the vibe of “Marching in Time” is different, emerging as a charging rock/metal offering that takes the listener on 12 individual journeys as it draws from current events from the past year to form the basis of each song.
From the driving drum beat of opener “A World Away” to the epic closer “Marching in Time,” the album is a reflective look at the world around us today. The band displays its softer side on pensive tracks “The Last One Of Us” and “Not Afraid to Lose.” The title track tells the story of a father having a child during a global pandemic and how he prepares for life during that time—something Mark Tremonti recently experienced in his own life—while the upcoming single “If Not for You” shows the evolution of the Tremonti sound in 2021.
“Marching in Time” was produced by longtime friend and collaborator Michael “Elvis” Baskette—the producer Mark has worked with exclusively since 2007.
