As the band’s debut single, “If Not For You,” impacts Active Rock radio, TREMONTI has released another song from their upcoming fifth studio album. The epic album closer and title track, “Marching In Time,” clocks in at 7:34 and is now available on all streaming platforms. “Marching In Time” tells the story of a father having a child during a global pandemic and how he prepares for life during that time – something Mark Tremonti recently experienced in his own life.
The release of the new song comes on the heels of the recent announcements of TREMONTI‘s North American touring plans and fifth studio album, “Marching In Time,” scheduled for global release on September 24 via Napalm Records.
Mark Tremonti is no stranger to storytelling. Throughout his years with top-charting bands ALTER BRIDGE and CREED, and most recently his solo band, Mark has never strayed from his love of writing memorable songs. With the upcoming fifth album, “Marching In Time,” the band looks to continue this trend while exploring their love for heavy music, drawing from current events from the last year to form the basis of each song. While its predecessor, “A Dying Machine,” was an overall concept album seeped in darker sentiments and story, the vibe of “Marching In Time” is different – emerging as a charging rock/metal offering that takes the listener on 12 individual journeys.
From the driving drum beat of opener “A World Away” to the epic closer “Marching In Time,” the new album is a reflective look at the world around us today. TREMONTI’s unmatched musicianship bleeds through the album, showcased on tracks like “Thrown Further,” “In One Piece” and the thought-provoking “Would You Kill.” Alternatively, the band displays their softer side on pensive tracks “The Last One Of Us” and “Not Afraid to Lose.” Debut single, “If Not For You,” shows the evolution of the band’s sound in 2021 and the music video is a frenetic, high-energy performance video that visually complements the single that is currently impacting at radio.
“Marching In Time” was produced by longtime friend and collaborator Michael “Elvis” Baskette – the producer Mark has worked with exclusively since 2007.

For as explosive as Mark Tremonti‘s playing may be at times, he has quietly and rather unassumingly asserted himself as one of the purest, most precise, and prolific guitarists, songwriters, and frontmen of the modern era. With a GRAMMY® Award, recognition at #1 on Guitar World‘s “Top 20 Best Guitarists of the Decade,“ and 40 million units sold between CREED, ALTER BRIDGE, and his namesake solo band TREMONTI, he maintains a breakneck pace in terms of both studio output and live shows. Once again, he directly channels this workmanlike focus, rigid discipline, and relentless drive into TREMONTI‘s fifth full-length offering, “Marching In Time” [Napalm Records], fusing uncompromising thrash-induced fret fireworks, wrecking ball grooves, and searing melodies all at once to present a definitive sonic statement.
