Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge has opened up on "Addicted to Pain," the lead single from the band's forthcoming fourth album, Fortress. Speaking with Billboard, the guitarist explained the track's inspiration.
"It's pretty much about an abusive relationship where somebody just keeps on going in this relationship, getting maybe not just physically beat up but mentally beat up," he said. "They've done it for so long they pretty much tell them that they must be addicted to this pain to keep on going through it."
Speaking on the album as a whole, Tremonti said fans should see an "exiting record [from] top to bottom."
"There's only two songs that aren't really big rockers and are more mid-tempo, and two others that could be considered more epic-y but still have a really big rock sound," he said.
Fortress is due October 8.
