Black Stone Cherry & Alter Bridge Rumoured For Co-Headline UK Arena Tour

With the recording of their new album 'Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea' complete, Black Stone Cherry could be hitting the road with Alter Bridge for a string of co-headline UK shows later this year.

The rumoured new shows will no doubt see Kentucky's Black Stone Cherry, comprised of vocalist Chris Robertson, guitarist Ben Wells, bassist Jon Lawhon and drummer John Fred Young, promoting new third studio album 'Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea' following its release later this month on 30th May.

Black Stone Cherry are a band adept at creating both timeless rock 'n' roll and new, innovative sounds. While the band's 2008 record, 'Folklore And Superstition', was a compelling tribute to brotherhood and history, the new album is the summation of a year in the life of the band — every emotion, triumph, loss, romance and everything in between — it's all there on 'Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea'.

Touring alongside fellow hard-rockers Alter Bridge, this double-header is definitely not to be missed.

Formed in Orlando 2004 after the very public collapse of Creed, Alter Bridge is made up of former Creed members and vocalist Myles Kennedy, who you may have seen performing live with Slash on the former Guns N' Roses guitarist's recent tour.

Releasing their third studio album last October, 'AB III' is a departure from the band's first two albums for several reasons, the primary reason being that it is a loose concept album, a first for Alter Bridge, with lyrical themes of mostly struggling with faith. It is more dynamic and progressive, musically, and it features lyrics that are much darker than the lyrics on the band's previous albums. The album is also the first Alter Bridge album to be released on Roadrunner Records.

Dates are yet to be announced for the Black Stone Cherry and Alter Bridge double-header but it is expected that a UK arena tour is on the cards for later this year.
