Aug. 3 — Tremonti premiered the video for the lead single from its forthcoming album this week.
The band debuted the video for the title track to its new album, Marching in Time Tuesday. The song and its video are the album’s second and come barely more than a week after the band premiered the video for the album’s lead single, ‘If Not For You.’
Marching in Time is scheduled for release Sept. 24 through Napalm Records. Album pre-orders are open, and audiences who pre-order the album now will get ‘If Not For You’ as an instant grat download.
The album will release on a variety of platforms, all of which are noted below.
Marching In Time will be available in the following formats:
-2LP Gatefold Black
-2LP Gatefold Pink Transparent (Napalm Mailorder Only – limited to 500)
-Die-Hard Edition: 2LP Marble Transparent Black + Guitar Pick + Print (Napalm Mailorder Only – limited to 500)
-Deluxe Box: Flag, Wristband & More! (Napalm Mailorder Only – limited to 500)
The video for ‘Marching in Time’ is a black and white presentation. It features footage of band front man and namesake Mark Tremonti and his band mates performing, and pairs that with a variety of artistic imagery, such as a rose and random video effects.
The musical arrangement featured in the nearly eight minute opus is a melodic hard rock style composition. Its balance of heaviness, vocal harmonies and rich drums and bass easily lend it to comparison to works from Tremonti’s main band, Alter Bridge and to those from Sevendust.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical content in the press release announcing the video’s premiere. However, a close listen leads to the inference that the song’s lyrical theme delivers a message of someone trying to convince perhaps a friend to not give up on his/her life, despite so much turmoil. This is, as always, just this critic’s interpretation and should not be taken as the only interpretation.
In other news, Tremonti has an extensive live schedule planned for the remainder of the year. The band is scheduled to tour with Sevendust and Lydia Can’t Breathe from September 3-26. Following that run, the band will take some time off to rest and recharge Daughtry, Sevendust, and Travis Bracht from Nov. 3 – Dec. 17.
