The discography of Alter Bridge, an American hard rock band, includes five studio albums, two live albums, one box set, one extended play (EP), 16 singles, two video albums and nine music videos. Formed in Orlando, Florida in 2004, Alter Bridge consists of vocalist and guitarist Myles Kennedy and Creed members Mark Tremonti (guitar, backing vocals), Brian Marshall (bass) and Scott Phillips (drums).[1] The band released its debut album One Day Remains in August 2004 on Wind-up Records, which reached number five on the US Billboard 200.[2] The album was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA),[3] while two singles from the album reached the top ten of the US Billboard Mainstream Rock chart – "Open Your Eyes" peaked at number two and "Find the Real" peaked at number seven.[4]

After signing with Universal Republic Records, the group released its second album Blackbird in October 2007.[1] The album peaked at number 13 on the US Billboard 200,[2] reached the top 40 of the UK Albums Chart,[5] and was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI).[6] Lead single "Rise Today" reached number two on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart,[4] while "Ties That Bind" reached number two on the UK Rock & Metal Singles Chart.[7] Live video Live from Amsterdam was released in 2009, reaching number six on the Billboard Music Video Sales chart.[8] Upon its release as a live album the following year, it reached the top ten of the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart.[9]

Alter Bridge's third album AB III was released on Roadrunner Records in 2010,[10] reaching number 17 on the Billboard 200 and the top ten of the UK Albums Chart.[2][5] The album's lead single "Isolation" was the band's first to top the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart,[4] as well their highest-charting on the Alternative Songs and Hot Rock Songs charts, peaking at number 20 and number five, respectively.[11][12] A special edition of the album titled AB III.5 was released in 2011.[13] The band's second live/video album Live at Wembley: European Tour 2011 was released in March 2012, reaching number 31 on the UK Albums Chart and number three on the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart.[5][9]

The band released its fourth studio album Fortress in 2013, which charted at number 12 on the Billboard 200 and number six on the UK Albums Chart.[2][5] The following August, a limited edition 27-disc box set entitled Alter Bridge X was released to celebrate the band's tenth anniversary, containing every studio, live and video album released to date, as well as several documentaries and behind the scenes features.[14] Fifth studio album The Last Hero followed on Napalm Records in October 2016, which debuted at number eight on the Billboard 200 (the band's first top ten on the chart since One Day Remains) and a career peak of number three on the UK Albums Chart.[15][5]
