Tremonti said the following when discussing future plans: "All of 2017 we're all dedicated to Alter Bridge, so we'll be touring all year long. The following year is when we'll go our separate ways for a little while.

The Sixx:A.M. mastermind refuted the fake news reports via his Facebook page. He said, "FYI.. A radio station recently posted a bullsh*t article that is getting picked up by the press because the press only wants 'press' SAD... Mötley is not getting back together...
"I wish the press had more credibility and wouldn't sh*t on fans feelings... Anything to get someone to click on their website so they can sell advertising... SAD. The press is suppose to report the news not make up gossip or spread it."

Frontman Matt Tuck had this to say, "Live at Brixton Chapter Two marks the end of a massive 18-month global touring cycle, so to mark the success of Venom and to celebrate our debut album The Poison, we thought we'd capture both nights so that everyone could be a part of it. It was an incredible couple of nights at a venue that means so much to us, so make sure you grab a copy and enjoy the madness."

The band is on the road to continue supporting Gore, which came out last year and was regarded by many as one of the best albums of the year. Watch the video of Moreno breaking his foot
The group had this to say, "Our band has always strived to take the negative in our lives and use it to fuel positive change. To foster good in a world that can be so bad. That and to cause the biggest ruckus with our fans while doing so. The relationship we share with you all and with our music has brought us to places we never dreamed of going; countries we never thought we'd step foot on, stages we only dreamed of playing. But the biggest impression left is the overwhelming sense of family that this scene has given us and let us be a part of. It's helped us become the men we are today and, in a way, is partly responsible for different parts of our lives blossoming.
"After touring for over 10 years, living our lives on the road and on the stage, it's time for us to go chase those other dreams that may have waited on a shelf. We've started families, careers, and new lives, all the while spending our nights sweating in a club or a Warped Tour parking lot with you and those sides of us and our lives need attention as much as Vanna did."

The album's first single, "Busted," also exemplifies the sonic leap taken by the band. Spotlighted by Beebe's slinky jazz vocals, the song mixes traditional American music styles, like the blast of R&B horns and the in-the-pocket drums, with some inventive touches, such as a mandolin plucked like a hip-hop inspired piano, and the upright bass and fiddle played through wah-peddles. The group has said that recording "Busted" was like a door opening for them to create something familiar yet stylistically fresh.
Even the album's more acoustic number, like "Debtors' Prison" and "Got Over," aren't as old-timey as they might first appear. "Debtors' Prison" initially suggests a throwback busker tune, but a closer listen reveals an all-too-contemporary ode with Lupetin singing about the struggles of trying to survive in today's troubled economic times. Similarly, on "Got Over," Lupetin delivers another modern-day portrait about a scuffed-up soul battling a whirl of problems who winds up "sitting on the kitchen floor … eating all the ice cream, 2 a.m. on a Tuesday." Things get a little more optimistic on the sunnier, Bill Withers-inspired "Honey I Love You." Featuring a guest spot by multi-Grammy-winner and fellow genre-bender Keb' Mo', this track serves up a timeless slice of sweet, silky soul music. Read morehere.

"That environment can be extremely helpful and constructive. And hopefully entertaining." Read morehere.
The band had this to say, "White Horse was written after watching too many of our friends and family members getting sucked into the vacuum of substance abuse and spat out as a shell of who they once were. This song is for anybody who's ever lost somebody to addiction."

The lyrical concept of the song Guardians was inspired and is a philosophical / ritualistic connection to the gateway of the individual's daemons of the psyche. I was taught and took this inspiration from what I learned from reading books from the famous psychologist 'Carl Jung' and from the most notorious Magickian 'Aleister Crowley' and other various books on the subject.
The whole cosmology of the Left Hand Path is to dig within and mold your subjective universe in order to create the ideal objective universe so you can be a god / master of both worlds.
The psyche needs to reach totality by connecting with these archetypes within the spiritual matrix or what Jung called the 'collective unconscious'. This is the goal of Black Magick. The ability to mold the inner and outer world and connect with these various archetypes. Basically, your Guardians
