Just two weeks after claiming the #2 spot on the Active and Mainstream Rock Charts, Alter Bridge have stormed the top overtaking the #1 spot with their single, 'Isolation'. The single, from the recently released AB III, highlights another milestone for the band becoming the group’s first #1 single in their career. Each of the band’s two previous albums had singles land at #2, 'Open Your Eyes' from their debut album 'One Day Remains' and 'Rise Today' from their critically acclaimed sophomore effort 'Blackbird'.
“Mark, Scott, Brian and I want to convey our sincerest gratitude to everyone who supported us at radio and helped get "Isolation" to number one. After slugging it out for the last 7 years it's amazing to finally get to experience something as cool as this. Thank you all!” states front-man Myles Kennedy.
'Isolation' is just one of those songs that resonated with listeners immediately. We cannot be happier for Mark, Myles, Brian and Scott on their long overdue achievement and finally getting to #1. All of us at EMI are proud to represent Alter Bridge,” adds Bill Carroll, Senior Vice President, Promotion at EMI.
The band took 'Isolation' further to the masses with a blistering performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on January 4th. ABIII was self-released on Alter Bridge recordings via EMI label services and debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
