ALTER BRIDGE JOIN FORCES WITH ROADRUNNER RECORDS
Roadrunner Records are delighted to welcome American rock band ALTER BRIDGE to the family. The band will be represented by Roadrunner worldwide, with the exception of North America (an announcement regarding North America will be released in the near future). Since they formed in 2004, Alter Bridge have built a loyal fan-base through relentless touring and their stellar live performances, selling more than a million albums and in the process becoming one of the most respected rock bands in the world.
Grammy-winning songwriter/guitarist Mark Tremonti comments, “There is a real sense of excitement in the Alter Bridge camp to be able to partner-up with Roadrunner. With their proven track record worldwide and the hard work we have put in touring internationally, it seems like the perfect combination.” Wally van Middendorp, Roadrunner’s Snr VP International, states, “I am extremely pleased that we have added Alter Bridge to our international artist roster and I am confident the band will reach the next level with their upcoming record.”
Alter Bridge’s first release with Roadrunner will be their forthcoming third studio album, succinctly titled AB III. Set for release on October 11 with Michael “Elvis” Baskette producing, the band – completed by vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Myles Kennedy (who also fronts Slash’s touring band), bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips – recently unveiled the song titles on their official website at www.alterbridge.com and also on their Myspace page at www.myspace.com/alterbridge. The full track listing is set to be:

NEGLIGENCE launch landing page and first song off upcoming new album ‘Coordinates Of Confusion’!
NEGLIGENCE have launched a landing page that includes pre-order deals for the new album Coordinates Of Confusion and that is featuring a brand new song.
On the same site you can watch the official video clip for ‘Warmachine’, taken off the bands debut album Options Off A Trapped Mind.
Coordinates Of Confusion has been mixed by Ruzz (drums) in their own Negligence studio in late spring of 2010 and was mastered at West West Side Music in New York by Alan Douches.
Comments NEGLIGENCE: “We really feel that what we’ve done on this record, is a big step forward for us. We took a different approach in writing the songs, since we wrote them altogether. This resulted in a more mature and heavier album opposed to our first album ‘Options of a trapped mind’. That being said, we’ve still remained loyal to our own sound, our own thing so we’re really just can’t wait for our fans to get hold of the new album and hear for themselves.”

NEGLIGENCE was formed in 2000 by Dyz and Jey, two excellent Slovenian guitarists who shared the same passion for music and decided to start working together. They soon found a proper and stable line-up and played lots of shows in their homeland Slovenia including a gig at the infamous Metal Camp festival. Between 2003 and 2005 they also released three unnamed demos.
2005 marks a turning point in the history of NEGLIGENCE when they parted ways with their old singer and presented the 15-year old Alex as their new frontman. The band gathered a bigger fanbase and in 2007 NEGLIGENCE independently released their debut album Options Of A Trapped Mind. The album opened many new doors for the group and got a good reception amongst metal fans and received great reviews worldwide. Following the release, the band went on to promote their album supporting some of the biggest acts in metal, such as Exodus, Forbidden, Heathen, Sadus and Death Angel among others.
At the end of 2009, long-time member Dyz parted ways with the band but was still part of the production for the second album. NEGLIGENCE have recently found a second guitar player – his name is Aljo – who will help increasing the sheer power the band is able to deliver on stage!
Alex – vocals
Jey – guitars
Aljo – guitars
