Slash announces new album, tour

It’s the group’s third album together

Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have announced a new album and tour. The group — Slash (Guitar), Myles Kennedy (Vocals), Brent Fitz (Drums), Todd Kerns (Bass & Vocals) and Frank Sidoris (Guitar & Vocals) — will release Living The Dream on September 21st. The group will kick off their tour on September 13th at the famed Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, CA and hit the road for 20 dates.

“I’m excited about the new stuff we put together for this next record; it’s got some cool songs and it’s got a great live feel.” Slash explains. “I’ve been working with Myles, Brent and Todd for about eight years now. It’s been an amazing ride so far; as a band we continue to get better which is great. With the addition of Frank since the World On Fire Tour, I feel we have hit a great, creative stride which I definitely think shows on this next record.”

Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Iggy Pop, Incubus) will be producing the project.

Slash adds, “Guns N’ Roses will be headlining European festivals this summer, it’s going to be a 110% performance and a huge blast. I love doing European fests and this is the first time we’ve done any proper festivals over there on the ‘Not In This Lifetime Tour’. It’s indescribable to explain these shows. I’m looking over and seeing Axl, Duff and Dizzy whom I’ve known forever, but it also feels like an entirely new experience with Richard, Frank and Melissa. It’s like being in a new band, except there’s a chemistry that is established from days of old, so it’s a natural thing that’s always been there.”

Pre-sales for the Living The Dream Tour start Tuesday, June 19th at 10 am local time on each stop via slashonline.com. Use the password SLASH18.
