From their upcoming fifth studio album The Last Hero, Alter Bridge deliver this new song ‘Show Me A Leader’.
Vocalist guitarist Myles Kennedy has stated, “Lyrically, it reflects the frustrations that a lot of people are feeling with the current state of the world. The world is looking for trustworthy effective leadership and not this undignified dog and pony show that’s really made a mockery of our system.”
“It’s indicative of our process,” guitarist/vocalist Mark Tremonti adds. “Myles had this guitar intro that I loved, and I had the chorus. We put them together. The words call out for a proper leader.”
Ghoul combine too unlikely genres, death metal and skate punk, to miraculously good results on their new EP ‘Dungeon Bastards’. Anyone looking for something a little different should definitely check out this release.
