Due October 8th, Alter Bridge's "Fortress" has had some serious anticipation built up behind it over the past weeks. Here's an interview with lead singer Myles Kennedy and lead guitarist Mark Tremonti breaking down each track.

The video clocks in at just over 21 minutes, as the two band members showcase the guitar licks and overall meaning to all 12 tunes.

Of course, as you've heard on your radio, "Addicted to Pain" is the lead single, and a damn powerful at that.

Produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette and the official word from the guys that this album is definitely the riffiest and heaviest, I'd say this album could easily be one the best this year.
