With their new single “Holiday” currently in the Top 30 at Active Rock radio and a bunch of recent sold-out U.S. tour dates, acclaimed rockers ALTER BRIDGE are announcing a May run of headline tour dates in support of their recent album Pawns & Kings. The 2023 Pawns & Kings US Tour will be adding nine new stops to the tour as well as a recently announced festival appearance at Welcome To Rockville on May 20th. The new headline dates will kick off on May 6th in Greensboro, NC and wrap up on May 19th in Dothan, AL. Special guests SEVENDUST will be joining ALTER BRIDGE on the tour that will make stops in Charlotte, NC (May 9th); Chattanooga, TN (May 14th) and New Orleans, LA (May 17th) to name a few. More information on tickets and VIP experiences can be found at https://alterbridge.com/pages/tour.

Pawns & Kings – the band’s seventh studio album – was released worldwide on October 14th via Napalm Records. From the opening riffs of “This Is War” to the title track album closer “Pawns & Kings”, ALTER BRIDGE returns with an album of intense tracks that were born after the cycle for their last album was cut short by the global pandemic. Songs like “Dead Among The Living”, “Holiday” and “Last Man Standing” showcase the signature songwriting the band is known for. 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. Mark Tremonti steps out of his backing vocal role to take the lead on “Stay”, an introspective ballad that is sure to become a fan favorite live. The latest single “Holiday” has been a fan favorite since it was made public and is currently one of the most added songs at Active Rock radio. The “Holiday” video marks the return of longtime video collaborator Dan Sturgess of Sturge Media – known for capturing the band’s iconic performance with the Parallax Orchestra on Alter Bridge: Live At The Royal Albert Hall. The song is currently impacting US radio and the video for “Holiday” can be seen on KNAC.COM HERE. The band have also released lyric videos for the title track “Pawns & Kings”, the popular “Sin After Sin” and album opener “This Is War”. These songs all found their way into the band’s set list during their European tour. Known for its signature dual-guitar attack backed by a driving rhythm section, the album’s debut single “Silver Tongue” shot up the charts around the globe and is currently still in the Top 25 in Canada. Its animated music video was created and directed by Ollie Jones of Better Feeling Films (Myles Kennedy, Prodigy, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets) and has garnered over 1.5 million views and counting. Pawns & Kings found its way on numerous 2022 year-end lists around the world and was produced by longtime collaborator Michael “Elvis” Baskette.

  The track listing for Pawns & Kings is:

  • "This Is War"
  • "Dead Among The Living"
  • "Silver Tongue"
  • "Sin After Sin"
  • "Stay"
  • "Holiday"
  • "Fable Of The Silent Son"
  • "Season Of Promise"
  • "Last Man Standing"
  • "Pawns & Kings"
ALTER BRIDGE’s Pawns & Kings is now available for streaming via all digital service providers and for order in various physical configurations here: https://lnk.to/PawnsAndKings.

ALTER BRIDGE is currently in the middle of the first leg of the US run of their Pawns & Kings Tour. The tour is the band’s first in the market in almost three years. The 30-city tour – split into two legs – kicked off on January 25th in Tampa, FL and wraps up April 1st in Highland, CA, making stops in Toronto, ON (February 11th); Kansas City, MO (March 11th) and Seattle, WA (March 23rd). MAMMOTH WVH will join them as direct support on the entire tour, with rockers RED playing on the first leg of the tour and newcomers PISTOLS AT DAWN playing on the second leg. Tickets for all shows are now available and more information on tickets and VIP experiences can be found at https://alterbridge.com/pages/tour.
