Original CREED Line-Up Reunites for Summer Tour and New Album

Posted by Michael Mueller on April 27, 2009 at 10:11 AM

One of the most successful rock bands of the past decade, Creed has announced all four of the original band members are back together for a summer tour and new album. On reuniting, guitarist Mark Tremonti stated, "We're all very excited to reconnect with our fans and each other after six long years."

"Our career as Creed came to a very abrupt and unforeseen ending," adds drummer Scott Phillips. "After reflecting on some of the greatest personal and professional moments of our lives, we've come to realize that we are still very capable of continuing that career and our friendship on a grander scale than ever before."

"This is a development we are all happy about," continues bassist Brian Marshall. "It has been a long time since the four of us have taken the stage together, and without hesitation or reservation this is something all of us are in to. The anticipation to get back out there is electrifying." 

"It's amazing how life can change and bring you full circle," says singer Scott Stapp. "Time gave us all a chance to reflect, grow and gain a deeper appreciation of our friendships, artistic chemistry, passion for music, and sincere love for our fans. It's rare in life to get a second chance to make a first impression and we embrace the opportunity. We all believe the best is yet to come."

After Creed's less-than-amicable breakup in 2004, guitarist Mark Tremonti and drummer Scott Phillips recruited bassist Brian Marshall, who'd been dismissed from Creed during the band's Human Clay Tour, and former Mayfield Four singer Myles Kennedy to form Alter Bridge, which has released two albums: One Day Remains and Blackbird. Singer Scott Stapp released a solo album titled The Great Divide.

According to Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy, the Creed reunion doesn't spell the end of Alter Bridge. In fact, band is currently writing new songs and will hit the studio this November to record "Alter Bridge III." The band will also release a live DVD titled "Alter Bridge Live in Amsterdam" later this year. See the clip below.

Creed has also teamed with I Love All Access to provide a variety of VIP ticket packages for the tour, including premium seats, meet and greets, photo ops, parties and more.
