Audio: Myles Kennedy (Slash, Alter Bridge) Announces New Solo Album!

February 19, 2021

You don’t have long to wait for Slash / Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy’s second solo album! The Ides of March, is being released May 14, 2021. The official video for the first single, “In Stride” has already been released! 

The Ides of March is the follow-up to 2018’s Year of the Tiger.

Kennedy talked of “In Stride” in a press released, “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 decided to create a new solo album after the pandemic cancelled tours. He used the same musicians that helped him with Year of the Tiger to create the new album; drummer Zia Uddin and bassist Tim Tournier. Producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette worked on the album in Florida.
