Alter Bridge have completed work on their sixth studio album.
Bassist Brian Marshall took to Twitter on Saturday (1st June) to confirm they have finished the follow-up to 2016’s ‘The Last Hero’.
He wrote: “AB6 recording and mixing complete. Album artwork looking sick! Cannot wait for you all to hear this.”

The as-yet-untitled album is tentatively due for release in the autumn.
Last November, frontman Myles Kennedy confirmed the band had been penning material while juggling their other musical ventures; Tremonti, Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators and Myles’ solo career.
He told My Global Mind: “There are a whole bunch of ideas being thrown around. It's pretty exciting stuff… Mark and I tend to come up with a lot of ideas that we throw up against the wall to see what will stick. The songs we pick will decide the mood of the record.”
Speaking to Audio Ink recently, guitarist Mark Tremonti said they are “trying to come from a different place” with the new record.
“It's hard to explain. I'm trying to make it not be the same," he said. "We always try to reinvent ourselves with every record… But I'm trying to make it sound a little different than it has in the past. We'll see how it turns out."
Alter Bridge’s last headline UK concert took place at Belfast’s Ulster Hall on 8th October 2017.
Their two shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall earlier on the same tour were later immortalised on the live album and concert film ‘Live at the Royal Albert Hall featuring The Parallex Orchestra’.
