European Tour Including Dates With Iron Maiden Kicks Off On May 27th
One of the busiest musicians in hard rock/heavy metal, Mark Tremonti’s latest album Dust is now available worldwide. The album is the third full-length offering from the band comprised of Mark Tremonti on vocals/guitars, Eric Friedman on guitars, Wolfgang Van Halen on bass and Garrett Whitlock on drums. The newest album comes just 10 months after the sophomore release Cauterize. Dust has been receiving critical praise with outlets like Full Metal Rock raving: “Dust is my album of 2016 so far, and I can’t see anything altering that!” WhatCulture recently declared: “2016 sees the band a learned, masterful and sonically experimental beast; one that’ll warm your heart with a gorgeous chorus one minute, before collapsing the walls with a crushing breakdown the next.
It’s this firm grasp of melody and dynamics that make Tremonti the finest bunch of hard rock musicians working today” The album is available via iTunes at: http://smarturl.it/dustdigital and via Amazon.com at: http://smarturl.it/DustAmazon. Long-time friend and collaborator, Michael “Elvis” Baskette, produced Dust.
The first single from the album is the title track “Dust.” A lyric video was released last month and it has been viewed over 288,000 times since it was release. The song itself is moving up the hard rock charts and getting new station support weekly. The lyric video can be seen here:
Tremonti has also released a retrospective video chronicling the band through the years from the first album to present day. That video is now live and can be seen here:
Billboard premiered an excerpt from the video today that can be seen here: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/7350224/watch-a-clip-from-tremonti-video-retrospective-exclusive.
The band will be heading out on a European tour next month. The tour kicks off May 27 in Germany and lasts four weeks before wrapping up in Denmark on June 24th. The band will be playing Sonispehere, Download, Hellfest and Graspop as well as headline shows overseas. They have also been tapped to open for Iron Maiden on some of their European dates.
