Slash Ft Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators Annouce Summer U.S. Headlining Tour

Slash Ft Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators Annouce Summer U.S. Headlining Tour

As Slash ft. Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators–Slash (guitars), Myles Kennedy (lead vocals), Todd Kerns (bass), Brent Fitz (drums) and Frank Sidoris (rhythm guitar) are currently on their worldwide tour through Asia, New Zealand, Australia, Europe and the U.K., the group has announced they’ll kick off a headlining U.S. tour this summer. The U.S. trek will launch on July 15 in San Francisco and wrap-up August 13 in Orlando. Tickets will go on-sale this Friday, February 8 at 10AM local time and are available at http://www.slashonline.com.

The iconic, GRAMMY-winning guitarist Slash and his band, Slash ft. Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators are touring worldwide in support of their acclaimed third album LIVING THE DREAM and will release the new single “Mind Your Manners”–which Rolling Stone hailed “a menacing blues-rocker”–to radio starting today, February 4. The song–which already debuted at #39 ahead of its official radio impact date–follows the first single Driving Rain–Slash’s fastest rising single to date—which recently became the band’s 5th Top 5 hit in a row at Rock Radio.

“I wrote ‘Mind Your Manners’ on the spot to help the band get up and running once we got back in the studio,” explains Slash. “It’s just a go-for-it type of rock song. Straightforward and fun to play.”

“’Mind Your Manners’ was something I didn’t even hear until the guys had already started jamming together in the studio,” adds Myles Kennedy. “I listened to the final rough arrangement, and I thought it was a really cool, up-tempo sort of thing.’ Lyrically, it’s about how when things are going well there always tends to be someone who tries to rain on your parade and knock you down. You have to keep people like that in check and not let them get to you.”

Loudwire hailed “Mind Your Manners” as “the album’s most infectious rock single” while Rolling Stone added “The guitarist alternates between ragged power chords and squealing solos throughout the song; on the chorus, Kennedy layers his voice into stacked harmonies.” Elsewhere, The Guardian described the riff-rocker, “slithers and slides, with a dirty boogie.”

The group called-out to fans who created a live music video of their electrifying two hour show on the final date of their sold-out, U.S. headlining tour last fall; watch the “Mind Your Manners” fan clip HERE.

LIVING THE DREAM (Snakepit Records/RoadRunner Records) is the third full-length offering from Slash ft. Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators. The Los Angeles Times described the album as, “his best work since the demise of Velvet Revolver. …full of “unexpected funk, boogie, blues and garage rock influences.” While Rolling Stone declared the album, “a biting blues filigree at the end of a riff, weeping solos full of long notes, boogie-woogie riffs.” Elsewhere, Classic Rock hailed, “the bands third and Best Album, ‘The Great Pretender’ is the album’s masterpiece and one of the best things Slash has ever done.” Fans can purchase or stream LIVING THE DREAM HERE. Fueled by the Top 5rock song “Driving Rain,” its live-action, animated video as well as the best critical acclaim of their career, LIVING THE DREAM debuted with 10, Top 10 chart placements around the world.  The first single “Driving Rain” which jumped to the Top #5–marks the band’s 6th consecutive, Top 10 single at radio and Slash’s fastest-rising single ever in his solo career.

Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators: Announce Additional Dates For U.S. Tour

Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators: Announce Additional Dates For U.S. Tour

slash-myles-kennedy-2015

SLASH and his band Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators will kick off a U.S. tour Saturday, April 25 in Orlando FL. Today, (Feb. 24), the group announced new shows (New Orleans, Sioux City, Austin and Dallas) that have been added to their U.S. trek encompassing headlining shows and festival appearances. The month-long tour is the first solo trek supporting the group’s acclaimed studio album WORLD ON FIRE which is SLASH’s third straight solo album to debut in the Top Ten in the U.S and the second album with his official band The Conspirators which features MYLES KENNEDY (vocals), BRENT FITZ (drums), TODD KERNS (bass) and FRANK SIDORIS (touring guitarist). In addition to festival appearances at WJRR Earthday Birthday, Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville, Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion, Rise About Fest and Rock on the Range,the global rock heavyweights will headline New York City (Terminal 5), Baltimore (Rams Head Live) andChicago (Concord Music Hall), among other cities, before wrapping Sunday, May 24 in Dallas (Southside Ballroom). Tickets for the new dates will go on sale starting Friday, (February 27) at www.slashonline.com (see itinerary below).

“The World On Fire tour has been nothing short of awesome,” says SLASH, “so I can’t wait to jump on these U.S. festivals in May and mix in our headlining shows for a bunch of dates along the way.”

SLASH Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators unleashed WORLD ON FIRE (Dik Hayd, Sept. 2014) to worldwide praise, garnering SLASH some of the best critical acclaim of his career (see a sampling below). The band and their new album continue to receive accolades including: SLASH was honored with the Les Paul Awardduring the 30th annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards (Jan. 24); “Artist and Album of the Year” from Ultimate Classic Rock; “Best Rock Album” from Guitar World magazine’s reader’s poll; “#1 on theTop 20 rock Albums of 2014” from Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles (BraveWords.com); and Loudwire named Myles Kennedy “Best Vocalist” and Todd Kerns “Best Bassist.”

WORLD ON FIRE achieved over 12 Top Ten chart debuts around the world upon its release. The album’s title track and first single “World On Fire” ascended to #1 at U.S. Rock Radio. Their new single “Bent To Fly”–showcasing SLASH’s stellar guitar work and frontman Myles Kennedy’s vocal command of both high and low ranges–is already in the Top 20 at Active Rock (watch the “CONAN” performance below). WORLD ON FIRE is the follow-up to the acclaimed Apocalyptic Love album (2012) which also stormed the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, debuting at #4 as the top rock album. Apocalyptic Love has the added distinction of spawning SLASH’sfirst-ever #1 rock radio solo hits: “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sunday.” And now with WORLD ON FIRESLASH Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators have now hit their stride at rock radio and with fans worldwide.

“The group [Slash with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators] is now three albums into their career, and its latest, WORLD ON FIRE (Dik Hayd)—tracked as usual on analog tape–features some of the warmest-rock guitar textures, most dimensional and contrapuntal guitar arrangements, and most downright killin’riffs Slash has ever delivered. It also features camaraderie, chemistry, work ethic, and to use a rhythm section term, gelling that Slash-after paying more than his share of drama dues with those other two bands-certainly deserves. In Kennedy, Slash has found a lead singer who not only kills both the new stuff and the old, he also shows up to soundcheck on time. Guns, Revolver and Snakepit were all cool, but Slash, now playing huge crowds under his own name, and playing the music he wants to, has finally found his real dream band.”

Slash Joins Forces With Universal Studios Hollywood For Halloween Horror Nights With “Clowns 3D Music By Slash”

Slash Joins Forces With Universal Studios Hollywood For Halloween Horror Nights With “Clowns 3D Music By Slash”

Slash

Slash

Celebrated Grammy® Award-winning musician, SLASH, hailed as one of the 10 best electric guitar players of all time by Time magazine, is joining forces with Universal Studios Hollywood to compose an original score for the theme park’s hypnotizing new 3D maze, “Clowns 3D Music by SLASH” at “Halloween Horror Nights,” beginning Friday, September 19, 2014.

While partnering with top recording artists has become a signature of “Halloween Horror Nights,” this collaboration with prolific guitarist, SLASH, marks the first time a musician has created an original maze score for the popular event.  This inspired effort comes at a demanding time for SLASH, whose new album World on Fire debuts on September 16, 2014, on the heels of his “Let Rock Rule” World Tour performing with Aerosmith.

Infused with the rocker’s hell-raising electric guitar riffs, the ominous new “Clowns 3D Music by SLASH” haunted attraction is no laughing matter as it unmasks the psychological disorder known as Coulrophobia, a disturbing condition affecting those with an extreme and irrational fear of clowns.

The psychedelic 3D maze will horrify guests, taunting and tempting them with terror and treats as they parade through “Sweet Licks Frozen Clown Pops Family Amusement Center,” a dilapidated roadside attraction and one-time thriving ice cream factory run by deranged siblings and their mad clown father, Sweet Licks. As this demented trio schemes to restore the family business by luring visitors with free ice cream, guests will soon find themselves on the menu as the key ingredient of a sick new high-protein ice cream concoction.

“I’m a HUGE fan of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ and was inspired to partner with Universal Studios Hollywood because they are the founders of creating extreme horror,” said SLASH.  “I’ve been composing music for as long as I can remember and jumped at the chance to be an integral part of this year’s event and create the original score for this creepy clown maze.  I can’t wait to see the fans’ reactions and will be first in line to experience the maze myself.”

“It’s an honor to collaborate with one of the most iconic rock legends around,” said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of “Halloween Horror Nights.”  “From the moment I heard SLASH’s original composition for the maze, I immediately knew he got it, as the vibe and feel of his score are so right on. He captured the exact tone we were looking to convey to our guests, and it’s great having SLASH be a part of this incredible event.”

SLASH has amassed album sales of over 100 million copies, garnered a GRAMMY Award and seven GRAMMY nominations and was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Time magazine named SLASH #2, behind Jimi Hendrix, on its “The Ten Best Electric Guitar Players of All-Time” list. SLASH helped create signature sounds like the guitar riff on #1 hits for Guns N Roses “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “Welcome To The Jungle.” After leaving the band, SLASH went on to critical acclaim with SLASH’s Snakepit and global success with the supergroup Velvet Revolver.  SLASH’s self-titled biography critically well-received, climbed the bestseller list in both the U.S. and U.K. hitting #8 on the NY Times Bestsellers List. SLASH landed on the top of the charts with his first solo album, Slash(2010) which featured Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and more. SLASH and his band featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators released the critically acclaimed Apocalyptic Love (2012) which stormed the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart at #4 as the top rock debut and produced his first-ever #1 rock radio solo hits: “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” SLASH released Nothing Left To Fear (2013) the first-ever motion picture he co-produced from Slasher Films, his film/TV production company. SLASH and his band will release their new album WORLD ON FIRE September 16, 2014.  www.slashonline.com.

Halloween Horror Nights” 2014 at Universal Studios Hollywood will be “More Dead Than Ever,” as it brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in the living, breathing, three-dimensional world of the most notorious and terrifying creatures in existence. This year’s event will feature a slate of all-new unrivaled film production quality mazes, terror-filled scare zones and a fully re-imagined “Terror Tram” experience, uniquely themed to today’s most definitive horror properties, including, “The Walking Dead:  The End of the Line,” based on AMC’s critically-acclaimed, Golden Globe®-nominated and Emmy® Award-winning television series; “From Dusk Till Dawn,” inspired by Robert Rodriguez’s cult film and El Rey network’s TV series; “Dracula Untold: Reign of Blood,” based on Universal Pictures’ upcoming epic action-adventure; “AVP:  Alien vs. Predator,” based on the Twentieth Century Fox film franchise; “An American Werewolf in London,” based Universal Pictures’ Academy Award®-winning and genre-defining film, written and directed by John Landis; “Face Off:  In the Flesh,” based on Syfy’s hit TV series, and “The Purge: Anarchy,” a new scare zone inspired by Universal Pictures’ blockbuster thriller.

The group revealed the cover artwork for WORLD ON FIRE designed by American contemporary artist Ron English today. Featuring the blazing title track as the first single—arriving at radio Friday, June 13th—the disc marks SLASH’s third solo album and second one with his band featuring MYLES KENNEDY (vocals), BRENT FITZ (drums) and TODD KERNS (bass). For WORLD ON FIRE, SLASH and his band tapped Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Falling In Reverse, Incubus) to produce. Among the 17 songs is an instrumental–a powerful new turn for the band. WORLD ON FIRE is the follow-up to 2012’s Apocalyptic Love which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and earned SLASH two No. 1 U.S. rock radio hits–his first-ever solo–with “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” SLASH officially began recording as a solo artist with his self-titled 2010 debut album which employed a different vocalist on each track of his first album including Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and Myles Kennedy among others. Following are song titles for WORLD ON FIRE: “World on Fire” “Shadow Life” “Automatic Overdrive” “Wicked Stone” “30 Years to Life” “Bent to Fly” “Stone Blind” “Too Far Gone” “Beneath the Savage Sun” “Withered Delilah” “Battleground” “Dirty Girl” “Iris of the Storm” “Avalon” “The Dissident” “Safari Inn” “The Unholy” SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators tour dates are as follows:

AEROSMITH: Rock Legends To “Let Rock Rule” With North American Summer Tour

AEROSMITH: Rock Legends To “Let Rock Rule” With North American Summer Tour

Prepare To Be Rocked!

Prepare To Be Rocked!

Who better to declare “LET ROCK RULE than AEROSMITH, America’s Greatest Rock Band?

Rock’s most lethal army–Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton, and Brad Whitford–and special guest SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators will join forces for “LET ROCK RULE,” this summer’s definitive rock & roll experience.

Promoted exclusively by Live Nation, the LET ROCK RULE tour kicks off on Thursday, July 10 at Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre inWantagh, NY (see full itinerary below).  AEROSMITH and SLASH–longtime friends who’ve performed together throughout the years–will also take over Boston, MA. (Xfinity Center), Los Angeles, CA (The Forum) and San Francisco, CA (Sleep Train Pavilion) among other cities, before wrapping Friday, September 12 in Sydney, NS, Canada (Open Hearth Park).

This summer’s hottest ticket will go on sale to the general public starting on Saturday, April 12 through the Live Nation mobile app and atwww.livenation.com. The first round of tour dates are below with additional dates for a second leg to be announced shortly.

“Looking forward to inciting a riot and building the tribal bonfire even higher–it’s a win win with Slash,” said Steven Tyler.

Says Joe Perry: “The writing’s on the wall–Aerosmith and Slash.  We’re gonna let rock rule this summer.  Catch us if you can.”

Says Slash: “Aerosmith is one of my all time favorite bands, and one of the greatest rock ‘n roll bands of all time. It’s  an honor for me to go out & tour with them and  keep the rock ‘n roll banner flying high.”

The excitement all started when JOE PERRY took it to the streets with RISK, the famous graffiti artist, last Thursday night for “LET ROCK RULE” and things began ramping up mysteriously when the AEROSMITH logo, and the tour announcement date of 4.8.14, was bombed on various buildings in downtown Los Angeles by JOE PERRY and RISK. Following this, AEROSMITH drummer JOEY KRAMMER stepped up the momentum and went to Downtown Austin with street artist, CHUNK, to continue the “LET ROCK RULE” tagging. It was all first reported by TMZ–http://www.tmz.com/2014/04/04/joe-perry-grafitti-aerosmith-spray-paint-logo-tour/–and the “bombing” has continued every night.

JOE PERRY says, “I have always felt that AEROSMITH was Americas hometown band and what better way than to take matters into our own hands to spread the word.”

Earlier today (April 8) STEVEN TYLER and JOE PERRY revealed–on the Ryan Seacrest radio show–that they would perform a free set to announce the “LET ROCK RULE” tour. AEROSMITH, with a special guest appearance by SLASH, played a roof-raising set for the assembled crowd at the Whisky A Go Go, the historic Los Angeles venue where they performed their first LA gig in 1973.

AEROSMITH’s North American summer dates will follow the band’s overseas dates kicking off May 14 in Istanbul, Turkey and will hit 16 countries including stops in Russia, France, and the U.K. before wrapping July 2 in Kiev, Ukraine.

SLASH and his bandmates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators—MYLES KENNEDY (vocals), BRENT FITZ (drums), TODD KERNS(bass) and FRANK SIDORIS (guitar)–will return this September with their third studio album, title TBA and second album with this line-up. The group is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on the follow-up to 2012’s Apocalyptic Love which is being helmed by producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Falling In Reverse, Incubus). The group is recording a total of 17 songs–including one instrumental.  “It’s very rock. It’s more up-tempo than the last record was,” states vocalist KENNEDY. “Slash has got some really great riffs on this record. Killer stuff…” “The material on this album is more serious and more fun at the same time, which is a tough balance,” addsbassist TODD KERNS. “The songs are sleazier, tougher and more dangerous. We’re all very excited to unleash the monster upon you as soon as we can.”

SLASH officially began recording as a solo artist with his self-titled 2010 debut album which employed a different vocalist on each track of his first album including Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and Myles Kennedy among others. SLASH explains, “We’ve worked really well together from the start. I never thought about how it’s progressed. It’s real natural and like any sort of close relationship, we established it early on and now we’re just sort of doing our thing, it’s just a really cool kind of synergy that we’ve got.” Apocalyptic Love earned SLASH two first-ever No. 1 U.S. rock radio hits with “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” The album’s third single, “Anastasia,” cracked the Top 10 at Modern and Active Rock and Top Five at Mainstream Rock.

The innovative online series isdocumenting the entire in-studio recording process from the first day of recording to the last, the multi-segment fly-on-the wall series follows Slash and The Conspirators from pre-production at NRG Studios in Los Angeles to Studio Barbarossa in Florida, as they write, play, create and record the new album from start to finish.
