Tremonti, the band led by Creed and Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti, took some time out of its European tour last week to visit U.S. troops stationed in Heidelberg, Germany. The members of the group signed autographs and took pictures, while Tremonti also answered some questions for American Forces Network. A video of the visit has been posted online.
Tremonti has been on tour in Europe behind All I Was, the guitarist's solo debut which came out in July 2012. He also recently took time out to work on songs for the fourth Alter Bridge album with singer Myles Kennedy and told us how it was going: "We've got about five songs outlined and all of them are kind of real high energy, just real fun rock-slash-metal-slash -- you know, we kind of want to not be predictable. We want to make it a little surprising and we're having fun with it."
The last Alter Bridge album, AB III, came out in 2010.
Tremonti's solo band includes Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen. The son of Eddie Van Halen made his debut as part of Tremonti's touring lineup in September 2012 after bass player Brian Marshall dropped out.
This marks the first time Wolfgang has played with anyone outside of his father, his uncle Alex and singer David Lee Roth.
With Van Halen not active at the moment, Tremonti has said that he hopes Wolfgang will play bass on his next solo disc and continue touring with him.
