Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators announce new album Living The Dream due out Sept 21 via Snakepit/ Roadrunner Records & announce Fall Tour!
SLASH FT. MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS have announced today, June 18 they’ll release their new album titled LIVING THE DREAM on September 21 via SLASH’s own label Snakepit Records in partnership with Roadrunner Records. LIVING THE DREAM is SLASH’s fourth solo album, and third with his band featuring MYLES KENNEDY (Vocals), BRENT FITZ (Drums), TODD KERNS (Bass & Vocals) and FRANK SIDORIS (Guitar & Vocals). A pre-order for the new album will begin on Wednesday, July 25.
For LIVING THE DREAM, SLASH and his band re-teamed with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Iggy Pop, Incubus); the group are currently putting the finishing touches on the powerful 12 song collection. The band’s previous albums World On Fire and Apocalyptic Love, debuted in the Top Ten on 12 charts globally, spawned three #1 hit singles at U.S. Rock Radio and earned worldwide praise garnering SLASH some of the best critical acclaim of his career. World On Fire was tagged by Guitar World as “another bold and unapologetically riffy statement” and “a varied, immersive and incredibly hard rocking effort” (December 2014). Rolling Stone described Apocalyptic Love--the band’s debut album--as “filled with head bangers and plenty of fancy fretwork” and Revolver declared it “a collection of lean, high-octane rock-and-roll tunes built to be blasted out of open-top sports cars, or more suitably, open-air stadiums” (May 2012).
The group have announced they’ll kick off a U.S. headlining tour beginning September 13 in Los Angeles. Citi is the official credit card of the “Living The Dream” tour, as such Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Tuesday, June 19 at 10am local time through Thursday, June 21 at 10pm.
