Continuing the build up to the most eagerly awaited live CD and DVD of the year, Alter Bridge have given us all another treat in the form of a second clip from the DVD of Live At The Royal Albert Hall. Having released the performance of Addicted To Pain shortly after the announcement of the September 7th release date, we’ve now got another song to enjoy, and it’s a special one.
Any longtime Alter Bridge fan will tell you what a rarity Words Darker Than Their Wings is. Prior to the two Royal Albert Hall shows, the band had never played it live. So to play it for the first time with The Parallax Orchestra was something quite special. Check it out for yourselves below:
For an insight into the track, straight from the full length concert movie on the DVD, here’s Alter Bridge shredder extraordinaire Mark Tremonti:
“Words Darker Than Their Wings’ was a song that we never played before ever and its been one of our favourites, especially me and Scott Phillips. That’s been one of our top 3 Alter Bridge songs since we wrote it and its just one of those songs that we have been trying and trying and trying to play live and Myles is always kind of pushing back about it and finally, you know with this orchestra he [Myles] said this is the perfect time to do it. We did and it was the biggest reaction of both nights”
The pre-order for the release is live and fans can order various audio and video configurations including Blu-Ray, DVD, CD and Vinyl as well as other unique bundles with exclusive content. The preorder is currently live here: http://smarturl.it/LiveFromTRAH and at www.alterbridge.com. A portion of the proceeds from all sales will go to the Future Song Foundation; an organization that Myles Kennedy is closely involved with.
The full track listing for the CD and DVD can be read in our original announcement here, along with the aforementioned clip of Addicted To Pain. Rock Sins was lucky enough to be present at the second of the two Royal Albert Hall shows, and our review of that incredible evening can be found right here.
Stay tuned for further updates about the release.
