Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have premiered a new song titled “Driving Rain.” This track is from the band’s new album “Living The Dream,” which will be released on September 21. That effort can be pre-ordered HERE.
“This is a riff I specifically remember playing with the guys for the first time at a venue in New Hampshire on the World on Fire tour. It’s a cool guitar part we ran though, and from that point forward the rest of the song started to come together in my mind while on the road. We put it all together this year and Myles came up with a great melody for it.”
“The riff is very reminiscent of vintage Aerosmith. It’s got a certain funk to it that’s compelling. Lyrically, it’s a story about somebody who works on the road — it could be a musician, and it could be a traveling salesman. What makes it interesting is this guy has an addict girlfriend or spouse who continues to relapse, and she ends up getting him to come home. She’s miserable and falls back into bad old habits, and that compels him to head back to her to save the day.”

Slash teamed up with Nicholas O’Toole to co-write the theme for the video game “MX vs ATV All Out.” The track is called “Vanishing Point” and it can be heard in the below trailer. The game, which also features songs from Asking Alexandria, Stick To Your Guns, Orgy, etc., can be purchased HERE.
Slash previously revealed that he would be releasing a new album with Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators this fall, and now it looks like the effort is officially finished. Kennedy told Meltdown of Detroit, Michigan’s WRIF 101.1 FM the following:
“We just finished a record. Actually, I just finished my vocals for that last week, so there’s another record in the can. And it’ll probably come out later this year.”
Slash has confirmed that he will be releasing a new album with Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators this fall. The group are currently recording the effort with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette. A fall North American tour is being planned as well.
“I’m excited about the new stuff we put together for this next record; it’s got some cool songs and it’s got a great live feel. I’ve been working with Myles, Brent and Todd for about eight years now. It’s been an amazing ride so far; as a band we continue to get better which is great. With the addition of Frank since the ‘World On Fire’ tour, I feel we have hit a great, creative stride which I definitely think shows on this next record.”
He also added:
“Guns N’ Roses will be headlining European festivals this summer, it’s going to be a 110 percent performance and a huge blast. I love doing European fests and this is the first time we’ve done any proper festivals over there on the ‘Not In This Lifetime’ tour. It’s indescribable to explain these shows. I’m looking over and seeing Axl, Duff and Dizzy whom I’ve known forever, but it also feels like an entirely new experience with Richard, Frank and Melissa. It’s like being in a new band, except there’s a chemistry that is established from days of old, so it’s a natural thing that’s always been there.”
During their show in Las Vegas, NV last night (December 31), Slash, along with his band Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators, performed Motörhead’s “Ace Of Spades” to pay tribute to the late great Lemmy Kilmister. Check out some fan-filmed footage of that below:
