    Creed Band Creed Reunites for New Album
    After a six-year hiatus, multi-platinum selling Orlando-based rock band Creed have returned with a new record tentatively titled Full Circle.

    "We never felt like we weren't together," says frontman Scott Stapp. "We're not looking at this as a reunion. It's more of a rebirth."

    Though they stayed in touch through holiday cards and the occasional phone call, the group refrained from recording together in order to, "explore other creative outlets and build the main priority in all of our lives, which is our family," says Stapp.

    Indeed, the band has grown up quite a bit, as has Stapp's son Jagger, the muse behind their hit "With Arms Wide Open." "He's not a baby anymore," says the proud papa of the 10-year-old. Stapp now also has a 2-year-old named Milán.

    Could another hit about his offspring be on the horizon? Quite possibly. He wrote a tune about his daughter as well, simply titled "Milan Song." "She's my twin soul, my light," he says of his little lady. "I do whatever she wants."

    Stapp, who made the initial push for Creed to get back together, says it was awesome to see all the guys in one room again. "I said, 'I love you and if I've ever caused you any pain in your life forgive me.' And they said the same things right back."

    With any bad blood dissolved, the guys got back to jamming and planning a summer tour. "We're not trying to stay in a certain place or conform to where we left off," says Stapp. "The music is fresh, edgy, raw, passionate, honest and it rocks."

    "It's just the right time and we're all excited!"

    Yeah, can't say I'm excited about this news at all, never really did like Creed and the whole "God" thing they had going on.
    Can't say I like Alter Bridge at all either lol.

    poor show fellas...

    cant believe no1 in here likes Alter Bridge...use must be tone deaf and talent deaf

    im not exactly excited about it coz it will but AB on the backburner until after summer...

    but Myles Kennedy(singer from Alter Bridge) is recording a long awaited solo album.
    my guessin is that the money was too temptin to reunite for a tour and album.

    lets not forget how successful Creed were in there day...over 40 million albums worldwide, 7 consescutive number 1 singles, 4 of them being off their debut album...sounds pretty impressive to me!

    Default No Need To Panic.....

    Don't panic about this being the end of Alter Bridge, it's not.

    Singer Myles Kennedy has shot down reports that the newly announced reunion of CREED will effectively put an end to ALTER BRIDGE, the band he formed with then-former CREED members, guitarist Mark Tremonti, drummer Scott Phillips and bassist Brian Marshall.

    Kennedy says, "Many of you are wondering how this CREED reunion tour will affect the future of ALTER BRIDGE. No worries, it won't. I can assure you that as soon as they finish in October, we will move forward.

    "Contrary to false statements that might lead you to believe otherwise, ALTER BRIDGE continues to be paramount to the four of us.

    "The guys have my full support. It's a very complex situation to say the least. It had to be done.

    "I appreciate the fact that so many of you are concerned about our future. With that said, everything is going to be all right.

    "ALTER BRIDGE's third record is well on its way. The guys will embark on their reunion tour, I will make my record, and then we will carry on."

    CREED officially announced its reunion yesterday (Monday, April 27) after months of speculation. The group, which broke up in 2004, will head out on the road for a summer tour beginning on August 6 in Pittsburgh and wrapping up on October 14 in Nashville. Six songs have already been written for the band's fourth studio album, which will likely be titled "Full Circle". Recording for the project, CREED's first set of new material since 2001's "Weathered", will begin shortly in Nashville. A single will probably arrive before the tour begins, with the full album to come during or immediately after the trek.

    The reunion will feature vocalist Scott Stapp, Tremonti, Phillips and Marshall, who quit the band in 2000 and was replaced by Brett Hestla.

    Tremonti, Phillips and Marshall have recorded two albums as ALTER BRIDGE, with Myles Kennedy. Stapp launched a solo career after CREED split that was derailed by drug and domestic problems.

    Stapp told The Pulse of Radio shortly after CREED's break-up that it should never have happened in the first place. "The announcement never would have been made, because we didn't feel as a band that we needed to break up to go pursue some solo things," he said. "But when you are successful and the people around you start growing, and sometimes there's a communication breakdown. And that's something that I've definitely learned through this, is don't talk through anybody, you know. Call your friends when you've got something important to talk about."

    In a statement about the reunion, Tremonti said, "We're all very excited to reconnect with our fans and each other after six long years," while Stapp added, "It's amazing how life can change and bring you full circle. 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."


    So there you go, they will roll out the fake smiles and BS for the summer and then get back to their band with the good singer
    If it ain't broke....hit it harder

    i'll agree with that my friend!...

    Creed stil hold a contract to Wind Up records to produce one more album...i think thats why they have to tour and record another album...

    Marks brother has reassured all AB fans that after this tour AB wil be back on track...plus Myles is recording a solo album so that should be awesome!
    hes is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy to talented to be part of some side project behind Stapp and Creed in my opnion!!!
