World-renowned guitarist/songwriter Mark Tremonti will release the fifth album from his solo band TREMONTI, titled “Marching In Time”, on September 24 via Napalm Records. The official live video for the LP’s first single, “If Not For You”, can be seen below. The song tells the story of a father having a child during a global pandemic and how he prepares for life during that time — something Tremonti recently experienced in his own life.
Tremonti is no stranger to storytelling. Throughout his years with top-charting bands ALTER BRIDGE and CREED, and most recently his solo band, Mark has never strayed from his love of writing memorable songs. With “Marching In Time”, the band looks to continue this trend while exploring their love for heavy music, drawing from current events from the last year to form the basis of each song. While its predecessor, “A Dying Machine”, was an overall concept album seeped in darker sentiments and story, the vibe of “Marching In Time” is different — emerging as a charging rock/metal offering that takes the listener on 12 individual journeys.
From the driving drum beat of opener “A World Away” to the epic closer “Marching In Time”, the new album is a reflective look at the world around us today. TREMONTI’s unmatched musicianship bleeds through the album, showcased on tracks like “Thrown Further”, “In One Piece” and the thought-provoking “Would You Kill”. Alternatively, the band displays their softer side on pensive tracks “The Last One Of Us” and “Not Afraid to Lose”. Epic title track “Marching In Time” tells the story of a father having a child during a global pandemic and how he prepares for life during that time — something Mark Tremonti recently experienced in his own life — while upcoming single “If Not For You” shows the evolution of the TREMONTI sound in 2021.
“Marching In Time” was produced by longtime friend and collaborator Michael “Elvis” Baskette — the producer Mark has worked with exclusively since 2007.
