Sounds | Tremonti, Marching In Time

Ook de tweede single van het nieuwe album kan boeien en ligt als vanzelfsprekend goed in het oor. Rustiger dan de voorganger en toch even groots/episch, maar wat wil je van de co-songwriter van bands als Creed en Alter Bridge. Geleidelijk aan komt de shredder met zijn soloproject aan de oksels van die net vernoemde bands. Ook zijn zang weet steeds meer te overtuigen.

Marching In Time verschijnt op 24 september via Napalm Records. Luister ook naar: If Not For You


As the band’s debut single “If Not For You” impacts at Active Rock radio, Tremonti has released another song from their upcoming fifth studio album. The epic album closer and title track “Marching In Time” clocks in at 7:34 and is now available on all streaming platforms. “Marching In Time” tells the story of a father having a child during a global pandemic and how he prepares for life during that time – something Mark Tremonti recently experienced in his own life.

Mark Tremonti is no stranger to storytelling. Throughout his years with top-charting bands Alter Bridge and Creed, and most recently his solo band, Mark has never strayed from his love of writing memorable songs. With the upcoming fifth album, Marching In Time, the band looks to continue this trend while exploring their love for heavy music, drawing from current events from the last year to form the basis of each song. While its predecessor, A Dying Machine, was an overall concept album seeped in darker sentiments and story, the vibe of Marching In Time is different – emerging as a charging rock/metal offering that takes the listener on 12 individual journeys.

From the driving drum beat of opener “A World Away” to the epic closer “Marching In Time,” the new album is a reflective look at the world around us today. Tremonti 's unmatched musicianship bleeds through the album, showcased on tracks like “Thrown Further,” “In One Piece” and the thought provoking “Would You Kill.” Alternatively, the band displays their softer side on pensive tracks “The Last One Of Us” and “Not Afraid to Lose.” Debut single “If Not For You” shows the evolution of the band’s sound in 2021 and the music video is a frenetic, high-energy performance video that visually compliments the single that is currently impacting at radio.

Marching In Timew as produced by longtime friend and collaborator Michael “Elvis” Baskette – the producer Mark has worked with exclusively since 2007.
