Slash reveals story behind World On Fire lyric video

Slash reveals the story behind the recently-released lyric video for the title track to his forthcoming album, “World On Fire”, in the latest edition of a new online series, “Ask Slash & Myles.”

“I wanted something specifically dark and specifically fun,” says the guitarist, “and definitely something that you couldn’t play on regular tv.”

Due September 16, “World On Fire” sees Slash working with his touring band, Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators, and producer Michael Baskette.

A week after the album’s release, Slash will promote the project and mark the Guitar Center’s 50th anniversary with a series of three concerts in Hollywood’s most legendary clubs.

The rocker will play shows at The Troubadour (Sep 23), The Roxy (Sep 25) and The Whisky (Sep 26).

The group is currently on the road across North America with Aerosmith as part of the Let Rock Rule tour, which wraps up September 9 in Clarkston, Michigan.
