Alter Bridge releases ‘Silver Tongue,’ lead single from upcoming album ‘Pawns & Kings’

Alter Bridge has released “Silver Tongue,” the lead single from its upcoming seventh studio album, “Pawns & Kings,” due Oct. 14, 2022, via Napalm Records (pre-order here).

“Silver Tongue,” one of the heavier songs in the band’s recent catalog, is available from all digital service providers, and all digital pre-orders will receive an instant download of the single, along with the previously released album closer “Pawns & Kings.”

The music video for “Silver Tongue” follows two characters who fall under the spell of a painting that comes to life. The painting drags the characters into a dark world and forces them to fight for survival in a classic battle of good versus evil. The animated video was created and directed by Ollie Jones of Better Feeling Films (Myles Kennedy, Prodigy, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets) and is available to view below.

“Pawns & Kings,” which consists of 10 new songs, found Alter Bridge reuniting with longtime collaborator and producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette.

From the opening riffs of “This Is War” to the title track album closer, Alter Bridge returns with an album of intense tracks that were born after the cycle for its last album was cut short by the global pandemic. Songs like “Dead Among the Living,” “Silver Tongue” and “Holiday” showcase the band’s signature songwriting. The album offers numerous epic adventures, with three songs clocking in over six minutes each. The opus “Fable of the Silent Son” clocks in at 8:29 and is the longest recorded song in the band’s catalog–a distinction held by “Blackbird” until now. Guitarist Mark Tremonti steps out of his backing vocal role to take the lead on the introspective ballad “Stay.”
