Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy and guitarist Mark Tremonti recently spoke to Primordial Radio about their new album Pawns & Kings and the potential of them headlining Download Festival.

Speaking about the possibility of headlining Download Festival, they stated:

Pete Bailey: Are you knocking on the door of the likes of Download and all the big festivals? Because you’re out there, filling these big arenas, it’s gonna happen right?

Mark Tremonti: Always the bridesmaid never the bride… but we can’t complain, we’ve had such a great career over here and when you’re direct support for Iron Maiden or Metallica it’s still such a rush for us. So we’ll take what we can get and just hope for the best and just be thankful for the huge fan base we have here.

Myles would have to buy some new outfits and we’d have to probably bring in a 90-piece Orchestra and whatever it is we’d have to figure out something to make it special.

Myles Kennedy: I think it would help us up our game and it would be exciting! I would buy a special outfit just for Download.
