Re: Walk the Sky Europe 2019 Tour w/ Shinedown, Sevendust (UK), and the Raven Age (non-UK)

Nice! Mark sang on BID again? :eek

Cool that they closed the main set with Metalingus too.

How did you like the new songs?

Re: Welcome to TheAlterBridgeNation.com - Introduce yourself!

I discovered AB in 2011 or 2012 I believe. I was watching the old Palladium channel which broadcast concerts and music documentaries. I stumbled on the Amsterdam show by accident and was immediately blown away by Myles and the energy of that show. That's pretty cool to hear! I never would have thou...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 07

"Calm the Fire" barely edges out "In Loving Memory" for first place in my book. "Calm the Fire" is one of AB's most interesting songs with its unique intro and the way Myles sings the verses slightly overlapping at the beginning and end of each line. It's very dramatic ...

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Tonight's episode of The Walking Dead is titled "Open Your Eyes". I won't be watching it live as I'm a few episodes behind but I just noticed that in the listings. Since so much of that show is set in the woods, I wonder what the odds are that someone will stumble across the guys standing ...

Re: Walk the Sky Europe 2019 Tour w/ Shinedown, Sevendust (UK), and the Raven Age (non-UK)

In this interview it sounds like as of now they only plan to play 7 songs off of WTS (and only 4 per night):



As I recall they've already played 6, so I wonder what the 7th will be. Hopefully they'll decide to add more as the WTS tour cycle progresses.

Right? I love when they play with the arrangements live like this.

Reminds me of how they used to do ILM with most of the song acoustic, and then Scott would Walk back to the kit for the final chorus. The full drums coming in would always hit me in the feels.

Re: Walk the Sky Europe 2019 Tour w/ Shinedown, Sevendust (UK), and the Raven Age (non-UK)

Wow that version of WOY is very cool. Have they done it like that before, with the first half acoustic, and the second chorus onward electric? I've seen full electric and obviously full acoustic versions but never a hybrid like that before. Interesting to close the set with ATP as well! They just po...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

Yeah there's no way they'd ever hold back such a strong track. I'm more enamored with the idea of them doing so; since their music is so consistently good, they could probably afford to pull tricks like that. Speaking of Walking on the Sky, I always thought the chorus said: “Do you feel her alive?” ...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

Random thought: what if the album ended at "Walking on the Sky"? Someone mentioned that song would serve as a great closer, which I agree with. That would leave "Tear us Apart" as a b-side, which would be wholly appropriate, IMO. We would probably appreciate it more, while unders...

Re: Walk the Sky Europe 2019 Tour w/ Shinedown, Sevendust (UK), and the Raven Age (non-UK)

Yeah it is funny when bands have opposite popularity in Europe vs. the US. Europe has it right, IMO. Shinedown's music is so boring compared to AB's. Their first two albums were great; after that they've done nothing interesting. So I made it to Finland. Crows on a wire + Dying light + Brent lost hi...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 06

Another tough one but I'm going to follow my gut and choose "Cradle to the Grave". The entire song is just so beautiful. Somber yet powerful. I'm all for the overwrought melodrama mentioned above. :lol "Broken Wings" would be a close second. My mind again goes back to the ODR pre...

Re: Walk the Sky Europe 2019 Tour w/ Shinedown, Sevendust (UK), and the Raven Age (non-UK)

Hmm I guess you're right Anguyen. I was looking back at some of AB's older tours with lesser-known second slot openers who only played like 7 songs on average. But for their bigger, more recent tours, the second opener would play around 10, so this is nothing out of the ordinary. @Blackbird that's f...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 05

One thing I forgot to mention above is this: as I listened through each of these songs, I was struck by how each represents a step up in Flip's drumming game. That's certainly evident throughout each album as a whole, but these songs in particular highlight that progression. "Metalingus" w...

Re: Walk the Sky Europe 2019 Tour w/ Shinedown, Sevendust (UK), and the Raven Age (non-UK)

Thanks for posting those vids! The new songs sound great. Although if I'm honest, Myles sounds a bit lethargic here (and lately in general). Only 17 songs, no Dying Light. That's fucking disappointing for their EU tour kick-off show. Lol, settle down there man! They debuted two new songs last night....

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 05

This one surprises me as one of the toughest choices yet. Initially my reaction was they are all generally middle-of-the-pack AB songs, so it's tough to choose one when none of them really sticks out to me. In that light, I won't even try to rank them. However I went ahead and listened to them all i...
