Get ready, Alter Bridge are ready to rock the United States! The band has just announced initial dates for its spring U.S. tour. They've also booked shows in Japan to go along with their previously announced Soundwave run in Australia and string of festivals in Europe.

Alter Bridge will return to the road on Feb. 18, playing Tokyo's Liquid Room followed by Osaka's Club Quattro the next day. Then it's off to Australia for Soundwave, with the first date booked for Feb. 22 in Brisbane. With a month off between dates, the band will then play the first show of their U.S. trek April 14 in Dallas, with shows booked into early May and more expected to be announced.

Meanwhile, for fans making their travel plans, look for Alter Bridge playing some of Europe's top rock festivals in June. They've signed on for Donington and Graspop, as well as a May show in the Netherlands and a June performance in Milan, Italy.

All of the dates come in support of the group's forth studio album, 'Fortress.' The disc has already spawned the single 'Addicted to Pain,' with the group expecting to dig deeper into the album in the New Year.
