Slash announces new album and North American tour

Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have announced details for a new album and a North American tour.

Due February 11, “4” marks the guitarist’s fifth solo album and fourth overall with his band featuring Kennedy, drummer Brent Fitz, bassist Todd Kerns and guitarist Frank Sidoris.

The group recorded the set with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile) at the historic RCA Studio A to Nashville, TN, capturing the new material with a series of full band performances live in the studio.

“4” is being previewed with a video for the lead single, “The River Is Rising.”

“There’s two or three songs on the record that were written during the pandemic; everything else was written before,” explains Slash. “’The River Is Rising’ was one of the last songs I wrote before we started pre-production, and because it was so fresh and has a certain groove and energy to it, it was the first thing we really attacked.

“It’s the newest song on the record, and as for the double-time part, that was something that I came up with and tagged onto the end of the arrangement. Then when we were over at RCA, Dave Cobb suggested we do it right after the breakdown. So, we went straight into the fast part, and I just started doing the guitar solo over it. It was one of those things where we were jamming around, trying to fish out the arrangement, and it just happened.”

Slash and the band will launch “4” with a North American tour that will begin in Portland, OR on February 8.

Spotify fans will have access to SMKC tour pre-sale tickets at 10:00AM local time on Tuesday, October 26, while American Express Card Members can purchase tickets in select markets from Wednesday, October 27 (10AM Local) through Thursday, October 28 (10PM Local).

General public tickets will go on sale at 10:00AM local time on Friday, October 29 at
