Alter Bridge and Skillet announce co-headlining fall 2019 North American tour

on June 24, 2019, 12:34pm

Alter Bridge and Skillet will both release new albums in the coming months, and now the rock acts are teaming up for a fall 2019 co-headlining North American tour.

“The Victorious Sky Tour” will kick off September 22nd in Baltimore, Maryland, and run through an October 25th date in Orlando, Florida. Most of the shows will feature support from special guest Dirty Honey.

Alter Bridge will unleash their sixth studio album, Walk the Sky, on October 18th. Skillet will release their 10th studio album, Victorious, on August 2nd. Dirty Honey recently released a self-titled debut EP.

Last year, singer Myles Kennedy spoke with Heavy Consequence about his writing process for Alter Bridge’s music, as well as his solo material.

“I try to always be aware, whether I’m watching a movie or in a conversation with someone or sitting around, just being aware of the little concepts that I can try to tap into later on,” he said. “I write that stuff down in my phone and save it for a rainy day when I’m writing. It’s about keeping your antenna up and trying to tap into whatever you are feeling at the time. I feel strongly about the fact that you want to have experience about what you’re writing about, so it can be authentic.”

He added, “I can do the storyteller approach to a degree, but the story I’m telling has to have some understanding on an emotional level, so that when I’m singing it, I can draw on something.
