Orlando-based rockers Alter Bridge have released the second single off their forthcoming album The Last Hero, which is set to be released on 10/7. The band released the album’s first single, Show Me A Leader back in July, and have followed up with what is likely the final track to be released in advance of the album coming out in just under a month. I’ve mentioned a few times, including when I reviewed their set from their NYC area show with Disturbed that it took me a long time to really get into Alter Bridge, but My Champion may very well be their best song ever, and that’s after one listen.
I’m a huge fan of songs like Fallout, I Know It Hurts, All Ends Well and Fortress, but My Champion announces instantly that Alter Bridge have what can only be a great album on the horizon. If the first two singles are any indication, I can’t wait to get my hands on The Last Hero. You can totally pre-order the album here, as well as on iTunes if you want My Champion right now.
