Peace Is Broken... Live?

I'm just wondering if Alter Bridge has ever or will ever perform Peace Is Broken live... Why hasn't it happened? That song is killer and one of my favorites from Fortress. Mark's bridge section never fails to get me singing along. Hopefully they give it a go one day.

I think the difficulty of the guitar riff might play into it. If I remember right, I think Mark has said in the past it’s one of the riffs that takes the most concentration to play.

That's kinda fair. But I say why record something you know you can't or won't play live? It is a crazy riff... But the band jammed One Day Remains regularly for ages, also a pretty beastly riff... With a couple rehearsals, they could pull it off!

Simple. Not every song a band records is played live and bands like to put together the best album possible when recording. This is true of almost all bands, especially ones that have multiple albums under their belt. If you come up with a great song, why limit your creativity on an album to only record things that are easy enough to play live when you know you're possibly not going to play it anyway?

Think it's Myles that's more concerned about the riff, probably quite hard for them both to sync up with each other as well. Agreed that it would be cool to see them try and pull it off eventually, but don't think there's Words Darker-esque fan demand for it (although, accordingly, a lot less expectation).

Cradle to the Grave needs a playing at some point, too.

I think Mark said this in an interview, makes perfect sense.

I still can’t believe they avoided Words for years because of the difficulty at the end and they pulled it off with a freakin’ orchestra lol.

Yeah, it blows my mind that they haven't played Cradle to the Grave yet.

I think with PIB Mark is the more hesitant one because of the main riff. With CTTG I think is hard for Myles because of the subject matter.

As has already been said, a lot of bands put together the best possible album, even if it means some of the songs will be difficult to reproduce live.

Take Metallica for instance, it took years for them to play "Frayed Ends Of Sanity", and other songs from the "...And Justice For All" album live despite a huge demand for it from fans.

I though would love to hear Peace Is Broken live. It's up there among my favourite songs by the band
