Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) Premieres “The Ides Of March” Music Video

Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge, etc.) has premiered a new video for the title track of his new album “The Ides Of March.” That effort will be released on May 14. Kennedy commented:

“Written quickly one night after having a few drinks, it was an attempt to sum up what so many of us felt during the beginning of the pandemic. We were bored, frustrated and self-medicating to avoid going stir crazy. What I like about the narrative, is it pushes the idea that if everything is going to hell, at least try and do it in a celebratory fashion.”

“Chill out. That pretty much sums it up. The lyric paints a picture of a survivalist preparing for an impending zombie apocalypse. It was inspired by the first wave of lockdowns as everyone was buying vast amounts of toilet paper and supplies. I started to ask myself if it might be wise to try and gain some perspective and not overreact… keep calm and carry on.”

Kennedy said the following:

“[We’ve been] working on new material off and on for years, really. I mean, since we did the last run, which was — geez, how long has it been now? I don’t even remember. Everything is just kind of running together! [Laughs] But, there’s always new ideas starting to bloom. Due to the state of things, as far as getting that material out, we’re just going to have to wait and see. But there are always ideas in the pipeline.”

Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators Planning To Release New Album In 2021

It looks like Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators are planning to release a new album in 2021. Bassist Todd Kerns confirmed the news on Instagram.

Kerns said the following:

“Me cosplaying as bass player for @officialalterbridge In reality this is when @markttremonti jumped on stage with SMKC when his band @tremontiofficial played with us. I could never take the place of @bmarshall73 He’s a badass! On the other hand Mark’s bass player that night was none other than @wolfvanhalen Another badass. I’m just happy to get up there and play surrounded by unparalleled talent. I’m a lucky man.

Lots of new music coming. New @officialalterbridge coming next month. A new @officialmyleskennedy solo album in 2021 plus SMKC4. New @toquerocks New @minefieldusa NEW MUSIC! That’s what it’s all about.

I know 2020 has been beyond challenging but 2021 is going to awesome eventually. At least there will be a ton of new music. Once we get the live show thing sorted we’ll be cool.

Hope you are having a restful and happy Sunday! Thinking of y’all”

Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) Finishes Recording New Solo Album

Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) has officially finished the recording process for his new solo album. The effort is expected to be released in 2021.

Kennedy said the following:

“‘Turn up the Flux Capacitor!!’

After spending the last 7 months writing and recording, the 2nd solo record is tracked and ‘in the can’ as they say.

The process, which started with me writing and demoing for the first half of the year merged into connecting with @zznuddin @timothysonoftimothy and driving nearly 3000 miles to Florida with gear in tow to meet up with the legend that is @elvisliberace at his fine studio.

We all lived in a state of lockdown for 7 weeks with no outside world and nothing to focus on but recording music and acting like a bunch of 7th graders hopped up on vast amounts silly juice. It was an incredible experience….Rock n Roll summer camp at it’s finest.

Thanks to my band and Elvis as well as his merry men @1f_jef and @joshuasaldate for helping bring yet another record across the finish line in best way possible. Love to y’all. #solorecord #MKII”
