This track is part of the first album from Alter Bridge, a group formed by former Creed members Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips along with Myles Kennedy.
In our interview with Tremonti
, he explained that "Shed My Skin" is one of the most meaningful songs he's written. He told the story: "When I was young my parents moved me around a lot so it was the first time in my life I was truly alone. I grew up with two older brothers in Detroit, and then one year my parents moved me down to Florida and my brothers stayed there. I was 15 years old and I didn't have any friends or brothers or anybody so I was really alone. That's when I really dived into the songwriting because I didn't really have any friends. So that song is pretty much how I felt at that moment."
