Alter Bridge/Creed guitarist/songwriter, Mark Tremonti, is
gearing up for his first-ever solo project this summer. 'All I Was'
is scheduled for release on July 10 via Fret 12 Records, the
company Mark started with Daniel Tremonti and Tom Stanley.
Mark's solo effort, being released under the name Tremonti,
showcases his acclaimed guitar playing and incomparable
songwriting. The release also marks his debut on lead
Tremonti features Eric Friedman on rhythm guitar and Garrett
Whitlock on drums. Mark's Alter Bridge/Creed bandmate, Brian
Marshall, will be stepping in for the bass duties when Tremonti
takes to the road later this year. Long time friend and
collaborator Michael "Elvis" Baskette, known for his work with
Alter Bridge, Chevelle and Ratt, produced the album.
From the first riffs of album opener "Leave It Alone" to the
final notes of the closer "Decay," it is apparent that Mark's
playing and songwriting are at a new level. The metal influences he
grew up on ring throughout the album on songs like "So You're
Afraid," "Wish You Well" and "Giving Up." Mark finds his voice;
literally, stepping up to the microphone for the first time in his
career as a lead vocalist. The depth of his voice carries the
melodies on songs like "New Way Out" and "Proof." The first single,
"You Waste Your Time," will be unleashed at Active Rock radio over
the next few weeks and will continue the success at the format that
Mark has achieved with both of his other projects.
The lead single, "You Waste Your Time," will hit Active Rock
radio in the coming weeks.
