With the band releasing more content in advance of an album release than ever before, ALTER BRIDGE is back with the fourth song from their upcoming album, Pawns & Kings. “This Is War” is the bombastic album opener that sets up the musical journey that listeners can expect from a new ALTER BRIDGE album. With Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums, the band is at their songwriting finest on the aggressive track that showcases the musicianship that has earned them a global army of fans.
The haunting vocal intro sounds like an internal battle is waging as Myles belts out the lyrics: “Fight for your life, can’t you see what’s coming. Fight for your mind, this is war.” The lyric video was created by ALTER BRIDGE visual collaborator Wayne Joyner.
