Tremonti, the band comprised of Mark Tremonti on vocals/guitars, Eric Friedman on guitars, and Garrett Whitlock on drums, will be releasing their fourth full-length album, A Dying Machine, worldwide via Napalm Records on June 8th. Longtime producer, Michael “Elvis” Baskette, produced the album. The album is now available for pre-order at: http://smarturl.it/ADyingMachine-NPR.
From the militant drum assault of the album opener “Bringer Of War” to the instrumental closer “Found,” A Dying Machine is Tremonti’s most-diverse musical offering to date. Songs like “From The Sky,” “Throw Them To The Lions,” and “A Lot Like Sin” are classic Tremonti that fans have come to love from the trio. Songs like “Trust,” “The First The Last,” and “Desolation” take the listener to new places sonically, all backed by Tremonti’s signature vocal style.
A Dying Machine is the first concept album of Tremonti’s career. The music is inspired by a story that came to Mark while on the last Alter Bridge tour. During that time, the epic title track “A Dying Machine” was born. The story, which is being turned into a full-length work of fiction authored by Mark Tremonti and John Shirley, takes place at the turn of the next century where humans and fabricated beings called “vessels” are trying to co-exist. Tremonti and Shirley are working on finishing the novel to release alongside the record.
The track listing for A Dying Machine is:
Bringer Of War
From The Sky
A Dying Machine
Throw Them To The Lions
Make It Hurt
The First The Last
A Lot Like Sin
The Day When Legions Burned
As The Silence Becomes Me
Take You With Me
Tremonti will be hitting the road in support of A Dying Machine. Following US dates in May, the band heads to Europe mid-June for seven weeks of touring that includes dates as direct support for Iron Maiden alongside headline shows and European festivals.
