Slash feat Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators
SLASH FT. MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS (L-R): TODD KERNS (bass & vocals), MYLES KENNEDY (vocals), SLASH (guitar), BRENT FITZ (drums) and FRANK SIDORIS (guitar & vocals)

Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have announced 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). The album will be available for pre-order on July 25th.

For Living The Dream, Slash and his band re-teamed with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Iggy Pop, Incubus). 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. In December of 2014, World On Fire was tagged by Guitar World as “another bold and unapologetically riffy statement” and “a varied, immersive and incredibly hard rocking effort”. Rolling Stone described Apocalyptic Love, the band’s debut album, as “filled with head bangers and plenty of fancy fretwork”.

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.
