Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators Release LIVING THE DREAM
SLASH and his band, SLASH FT MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS release their highly-anticipated third album titled LIVING THE DREAM today, September 21 via SLASH's own label Snakepit Records, in partnership with Roadrunner Records. Early reviews are pouring in for LIVING THE DREAM which is available digitally and physically now.
Last night (Sept. 20), SLASH joined comedian, actor and host Marc Maron for an in-depth interview on his show "WTF with MARC MARON."
The first single "Driving Rain," is Top 10 at Rock Radio this week, #9 and climbing. "Driving Rain" is now the band's 6th consecutive Top 10 single at radio and SLASH's fastest-rising single ever in his solo career, yet. Last week, the band performed "Driving Rain"-which Rolling Stone described as delivering "bluesy riffs and solos throughout the blistering track" (7/25/18) and Revolver hailed as "smoldering" (7/25/18)--on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and "Mind Your Manners". Expect an official video for the song "Driving Rain" soon.
LIVING THE DREAM is the new full-length offering from the group which, in addition to SLASH and singer MYLES KENNEDY, also includes bassist TODD KERNS, drummer BRENT FITZ and rhythm guitarist FRANK SIDORIS. SLASH and his band re-teamed with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Alter Bridge, Iggy Pop, Incubus) for their third album resulting in the band's strongest collective statement to date following World on Fire and 2012's Apocalyptic Love. From the barnstorming, high-octane riffery of opener "Call of the Wild" to the wah-drenched funk rock of "Read Between the Lines," the haunting majesty of "Lost Inside the Girl" to the swaggering deep-in-the-pocket Seventies grooves of "Serve You Right," to the stately, quasi-classical melodic themes of "The Great Pretender," LIVING THE DREAM packs a compendium of sounds and styles into 12 tightly arranged and sharply executed tracks, all of it shot through with SLASH's trademark electrifying and dynamic riffing and high-wire, lyrical solos.
