Alter Bridge is an American rock band formed by Brian Marshall (bassist), Scott Phillips (drummer), Mark Tremonti (guitarist) (members of Creed) and Myles Kennedy (lead vocals, guitar, and formerly of The Mayfield Four). Alter Bridge released their debut album One Day Remains in 2004, with the first single Open Your Eyes. Alter Bridge prefers to think of themselves not as "Creed with a new singer", but as an entirely new band. The name "Alter Bridge" comes from a bridge in Mark's childhood. Their studio album Blackbird, was released on October 9, 2007, with the single Rise Today.
