Label: BMG Rights – 2021
After a decade and four albums released, Slash and Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators (SMKC) aren’t letting any obstacle stop them in their tracks – not even a global pandemic. The band announced today, October 22, that their new album, titled “4”, will be released on February 11, 2022 via Gibson Records in association with BMG. “4” is Slash’s fifth solo album and fourth with his band, consisting of Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass & vocals) and Frank Sidoris (guitar & vocals).
A lively rock album with memorable guitar hooks and captivating melodies, big choruses and even bigger riffs; “4” ties directly into the earlier works of Slash and Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, which the band brilliantly demonstrates right away in the opening track, the first single “The River Is Rising”.
For the recording of “4,” Slash and the band traveled together across the country to Nashville to record at the historic RCA Studio A with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile), revealing a stunning new sound and style recorded live in the studio. Cobb shared the band’s desire to record the tracks live in the studio, including guitar solos and vocals – a first for the band.
The previous albums, “Apocalyptic Love”, “World on Fire” and “Living The Dream”, released over the past decade, all reached the Top 5 on the Billboard charts in the US and the Top 10 in twelve other countries. To date, ten singles from those three albums have charted in the US Top 5 radio charts, the band has played sold-out world tours, and in their homeland, their latest album “Living The Dream” has been called their best work to date by publications such as the Los Angeles Times, Classic Rock, Guitar World, Loudwire, and LA Weekly.
