Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators Announce ‘4’ Album, Share ‘The River Is Rising’ Music Video!

October 23, 2021

Great news if you’re a fan of Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators! The band just announced they’ll be releasing their new album ‘4’ on February 11, 2022! The album is Slash’s fifth solo album and fourth overall with his band featuring Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass, vocals) and Frank Sidoris (guitar, vocals).

Slash talks about “The River Is Rising”: “There’s two or three songs on the record that were written during the pandemic; everything else was written before. ‘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.” While Myles Kennedy adds, “The lyric ultimately explores how humans can be brainwashed or indoctrinated by some sort of dangerous idea. Once we shot the demo back and forth a few times, I personally felt confident that we had the album opener. To me, it’s an important track.”

The band went to Nashville, Tennessee to record at the legendary RCA Studio A with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile).

And this is pretty cool, “4” is history making; it’s the first album to be released on the new Gibson Records label!

Meanwhile, the band will start a tour of North American on February 8th in Portland, Oregon. It hits 28 major cities (so far nothing for Vancouver) and wraps up March 26 in Orlando, Florida.

Will you road trip to see one of the shows if it doesn’t hit your city?
