Their 5th album entitled, “The Last Hero,” releasing in October, proves that Alter Bridge has no desire to quit anytime soon and they are better and bigger than ever. Alter Bridge is here to stay for a long time.

Hailing from Blue Island, Illinois, Enuff Z’nuff (pronounced Enough is Enough) started recording at the very beginning of their career and haven’t even thought about stopping and still have a lot to offer to the world of hair metal and rock music.
