(March 18th, 2016 – New York, NY) – After the recent announcement of Tremonti’s third album Dust, scheduled for release on April 29th via Fret 12 Records, the band has released a lyric video for the title track and debut single. “Dust” premiered yesterday on Sirius/XM’s Octane channel. The lyric video contains imagery from both Cauterize and Dust albums as the backdrop behind the moving lyrics. The video is now live on YouTube and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/9HghPn3v4e4.
“Dust is about how it feels to watch a close friend close confidence in you,” describes Mark Tremonti.

From the first riffs of album opener “My Last Mistake” to the final notes of the closer “Unable To See,” it is apparent that Dust is not a collection of B-sides or leftover material. These ten new tracks continue to showcase Mark’s hard rock/heavy metal influences alongside the material from Cauterize. Songs like “Once Dead,” “Betray Me” and “Rising Storm” hold their own place as weapons in Tremonti’s musical arsenal.
The track listing for Dust is:
1) My Last Mistake
2) The Cage
3) Once Dead
5) Betray Me
6) Tore My Heart Out
7) Catching Fire
8) Never Wrong
9) Rising Storm
10) Unable To See

The band will be making stops at some of the largest festivals in the world including Hellfest, Graspop Metal Meeting, and Download Festival.
