Wolfgang Van Halen Completes Work on Tremonti’s Second Album
Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti -- with help from bassist Wolfgang Van Halen -- has finished recording the second, as-yet-untitled album with his eponymous side band, setting a release date for early 2015. This follow up to 2012's 'All I Was' was produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, who has also worked on Tremonti's Alter Bridge projects as well as with Slash.
A new video, attached above, offers a sneak peek along with information on a series of support packages where fans can help fund the forthcoming Tremonti project. Incentives range from hand-written lyric sheets to signed and numbered albums to special listening parties.
"Van Halen will always be his priority, whenever they are touring," Tremonti has said. "When he’s not touring, he’ll be with us. He will write and play on the records and, if he is on tour with Van Halen, we will find somebody that he is comfortable with filling in his shoes."
Alter Bridge remains active, having released its fourth album 'Fortress' last year. A listening party for the second Tremonti project is set for January in Orlando, Florida. It's likely served as a nice distraction for Tremonti, whose Creed bandmate Scott Stapp has been in the midst of what appears to be a very public meltdown.
