Don't you just love when you get to sample something before you buy it? Well, a pre-release album stream is just as good if not better and Florida quartet Alter Bridge have made their upcoming fourth studio album 'Fortress' available for complete listening. 

Due out Oct. 8, Fortress will follow-up 2010's AB III, which reached the No. 7 spot on the Billboard 200.

So far, the album's cover art and track listing have been revealed, along with its first single "Addicted To Pain," which debuted in August.

Fortress is now up for grabs via pre-order, here. Digital: pre-order here.
