VIDEO: Slash streams theme song for new video game MX vs. ATV All Out

Slash and the producers of the new off-road racing video game MX vs. ATV All Out are streaming a video trailer for the project featuring the debut of the guitarist’s instrumental theme song, “Vanishing Point.”

The rocker teamed up with composer Nicholas O'Toole on the track; the two previously worked together on the score for the 2013 Slash-produced horror movie “Nothing Left To Fear.”

In MX vs ATV All Out, players start out on their own, private compound where they earn valuable upgrades while honing their racing skills – upgrades include gear, parts, MX bikes, ATVs and UTVs.

Players can choose to explore massive open-world environments or compete in Supercross, Nationals, Opencross, Waypoint, and Tag events on all the biggest tracks with many top pro riders from around the world; all of this plus a stunt system in freestyle mode, two-player split-screen, and 16-players competing online.

“Rainbow Studios and THQ Nordic set out to give a new shape to the MX vs ATV experience with All Out, aligning ourselves with the very best musicians for the soundtrack was as important as nailing the gameplay physics on the whips,” says Rainbow Studios CEO Chris Gilbert. “We’re thrilled to have someone of Slash’s immense talent as a partner on MX vs ATV All Out, combining off-road racing, video games and awesome music.”

Slash and Guns N’ Roses will resume their Not In This Lifetime reunion tour with shows in Europe this summer starting June 3 in Berlin, Germany.

On June 29, the band will release multiple expanded reissues of their 1987 album debut, “Appetite For Destruction”, featuring memorabilia and dozens of previously-unreleased songs.

Meanwhile, Slash recently completed recording sessions for a new album with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators; the set will mark the guitarist’s third studio release with the group and the follow-up to 2014’s “World On Fire”, which debuted and peaked at No. 10 on the US Billboard 200.
