As SLASH and his band, SLASH FT MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS ready the release of their third album this week, titled LIVING THE DREAM (out Friday, September 21), SLASH will join comedian, actor and host Marc Maron on "WTF with MARC MARON" this Thursday, September 20. SLASH FT. MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS just launched their North American headlining tour and will visit 20 major cities before ending October 16 back in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Palladium.

The group unveiled the new song "My Antidote" which follows "Mind Your Manners" and the first single "Driving Rain," now Top 10 at Rock Radio this week. "Driving Rain" is now the band's 6th consecutive Top 10 single at radio and SLASH's fastest-rising single in his solo career, yet.

LIVING THE DREAM--due out September 21 via SLASH's Snakepit Records (a partnership w/Roadrunner Records)--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, making his recorded debut after several years of live work with THE CONSPIRATORS, 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.
