Watch out, or you might get caught up in Alter Bridge’s new single “Silver Tongue.” The epic and aggressive song serves as the lead single from the upcoming Pawns & Kings album, although they previously shared the album’s closing title track.
Alter Bridge wastes no time catching your attention with a furious guitar-centric opener, adding monstrous drum beats and serving up stifling riffs before backing off slightly for Myles Kennedy’s soaring opening vocals. It’s definitely a hard-hitting, metal-leaning track, setting the tone for the band’s next album. Pawns & Kings collection.
To accompany the song’s release, the band teamed up with creator/director Ollie Jones of Better Feeling Films to create an animated music video centered around a pair of characters who fall under the spell of a painting that comes to life.
