I think the first record (2004’s ‘One Day Remains’) might have fit that better than we do now. I think this record (‘AB III’) — we really didn’t try to conform at all to any kind of commercial sound. We just wanted this to be an artistic expression, we weren’t thinking about radio singles. It’s funny, the first time we don’t think about radio singles, we have our best chance at getting a number one rock single out of ‘Isolation’.
So, I think that’s where we came from. Creed was a commercial band, but I think Alter Bridge is getting further and further away from that commercial sound.
