I’m addicted to all things related to Alter Bridge, in case you didn’t notice. Naturally, that means 2018 is going to be great for me. Myles Kennedy is finally releasing his first (technically second) solo album, entitled Year of the Tiger, in March; and Mark Tremonti’s other band will have a record out at some point next year.
Today, the title track from Myles’s album was released. It is very different from his work with both Alter Bridge and Slash. I love seeing another facet to this artist I admire so much! Check it out and feel free to leave a comment telling me your thoughts!
