“Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators-Live From Boston,” was shot on location last month during the group’s sold out House of Blues show. The full production, multi-camera, streaming concert event will give fans around the globe the chance to see SMKC’s electrifying live show which The Chicago Sun-Times heralded “a rock-solid powerhouse” and “a curated, 21-song salute to some of their own best material” adding, “As long as Slash is still standing, rock music will always be alive and well” (3/3/22). The set list will include classic favorites, as well as brand new songs from their new album 4, (Gibson Records/BMG) which debuted as the #1 Most-Selling Hard Rock Album during release week and has earned the group the best critical acclaim of their career (see below).
SLASH FT. MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS just wrapped their nationwide “The River Is Rising” U.S. tour with sold-out shows. The group have released their brand new single “April Fool” which is impacting radio this week, HERE. Fueled by the explosive first single “The River Is Rising” and its high energy live performance video, the song “The River Is Rising” reached #7 on the Active Rock Charts, marking SMKC’s 8th, consecutive Top 10 single at radio. SMKC performed “The River Is Rising” which Rolling Stone hailed as “raucous” and Billboard described as “euphoric” with “a surging main riff, dissonant hooks, an infectious chorus, and a guitar solo that conjures images of a rowdy bar brawl” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! HERE. SLASH also spoke to host Jimmy Kimmel, HERE and appeared on the popular NPR show “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me!” for an interview with host Peter Sagal, HERE.
A decade and four albums into their career, the new full-length album 4 marks the first new music from SMKC in four years and SLASH's fifth solo album overall. SLASH and his bandmates MYLES KENNEDY (Vocals), BRENT FITZ (Drums), TODD KERNS (Bass & Vocals) and FRANK SIDORIS (Guitar & Vocals) aka SMKC, partnered with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell, Rival Sons), for the new album 4 resulting in the band’s strongest collective statement to date. Recorded at RCA Studio A in Nashville, TN, Cobb shared the band’s desire to lay down the tracks live in the studio--including guitar solos and vocals--a first for the group, revealing a stunning, vital sound and style all captured live.
4 is SMKC like you’ve never heard them before. A vibrant rock album fueled by memorable guitar hooks and compelling melodies, big choruses, and even bigger riffs, 4 hits on a wide range of sounds, styles, and moods in 10 songs, and does it all with laser-sharp musical focus and a lightning-in-a-bottle sense of immediacy. The album kicks off with opening track “The River is Rising,” one of the band’s toughest and most dynamic compositions to date, unraveling via a menacing, tightly-coiled riff and deep-in-the-pocket groove. From the deliberate stomp rock of “Whatever Gets You By,” the bright-toned, heart-on-sleeve pop-rocker “Fill My World,” to the talk box-drenched guitar hooks of “C’est La Vie,” exotica-tinged psychedelic fever dream of “Spirit Love,” the anthemic swell of “The Path Less Followed,” to the cowbell-inflected boogie-shake of “Actions Speak Louder Than Words,” the grimy Aerosmith-esque funk of “April Fool,” to the rampaging attack of “Call Off the Dogs,” and climaxing with the epic, six minute album closer “Fall Back to Earth,” 4 is an album that grabs hold, and never lets go.
