TREMONTI A Dying Machine 2018 Tour
Every lasting legacy remains rooted in an undying urge to grow. After two decades at the forefront of all things guitar, a GRAMMY®Award win, 40 million-plus units sold between Alter Bridge, Creed, and his eponymous Tremonti, and countless other accolades, Mark Tremonti once again summited an uncharted creative peak in 2018...For the very first time, the guitarist and singer crafted an immersive concept and accompanying novel for Tremonti’s fourth full-length album and first for Napalm Records, A Dying Machine.As passionate about authors like Gene Wolfeand George R.R. Martin as he is about hard rockand heavy metal, the multitalentedmusician architected a big screen-worthy taleamplified by his most cohesive sonic vision to date.“I’ve never done anything like this,” he admits. “I had the vision in mind the entire time. Some songs directly relate to the narrative,while some of them are more ambiguous. Even with the concept, it’s very personal. At it’s core, this is a human story, but with atwist.”Since emerging in 2012, he and his bandmates—Eric Friedman [guitar, bass] and Garrett Whitlock [drums]—have built the foundation for suchan ambitious statement. Their full-length debut All I Wasand the follow up records Cauterize and Dust have earned the band a very strong following. The bandhas supported these recordswith extensive headlining gigs and festival appearances everywhere from Rock on the Rangeto Shiprocked.In the minutes leading up to an Alter Bridge show in Hungary, the idea for this opus serendipitously arrived. “I was warming up on guitar, and I just started writing this chord progression and singing over it,” he recalls. “The words, ‘You’re a dying machine’came out. I thought about the subject matter throughout the night.”That story unfolds asan emotionally charged narrative, spanning obsession, unrequited love, and destruction. The plot takes place at the turn of the next century,and the plan is to have the novel available at the same time as the record release.Once again, he joined forces with longtime producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette [Slash, Alter Bridge] for recording in Orlando duringlate 2017.Beyond generating a pristine tone on Tremonti’ssignaturePRS MT-15 amp, the guys approached the sessions “more prepared than ever in the past.”
