On top of all that, the quartet have announced a huge return to the UK and Europe for later in the year.

"We are honoured to be returning to the UK with our friends in Shinedown and Sevendust this winter," says Mark Tremonti. "See you all very soon, we couldn’t be happier with the line-up and can’t wait to share our new tunes with you!”

"It is such a profound and distinct honour to be accompanying Alter Bridge on tour this November and December," adds Shinedown frontman Brent Smith. "We have such deep respect for them and their fans. When the opportunity was presented to us, we jumped at the chance to be able to tour with our friends in Alter Bridge. So come one, come all to the rock’n’roll event of the year, and let’s celebrate… together!"

Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust adds: "So excited to come back to the UK and to be with our brothers in Alter Bridge and Shinedown. It’s going to be an amazing run!"
