The new album World On Fire from Slash ft. Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators is out now! This is one album that I was waiting for and it definitely exceeded all my expectations. The album features a complete 17 songs that do not disappoint, each one ready to rock your world. You can’t help but rock out to the signature crunchy riffs of Slash, the most powerful vocals of Myles and songs that will take you on a rockin ride.

The album truly has a more cohesive band element and not a feature alone of Slash. It is truly a full body of work that will capture your attention from start to finish. The first single World On Fire garnered a lot of great attention since it’s first release, and the rest of the album followed suit and did not falter in any way. Some of my faves so far are 30 Years to Life, Stone Blind, Dirty Girl, Too Far Gone, and Avalon. It is also so hard to choose because it is such a complete body of work that contains a vast array of songs to choose from. When Slash puts out his albums, he treats his listener to a FULL album, not just 10 or 11 songs, he brings the full buffet of rockin songs!

You can stream the album this week through USA Today by heading over here: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2014/09/16/slash-conspirators-world-on-fire-album-premiere/15692315/

SiriusXM is hosting “SLASH Week,” the week-long special on SiriusXM’s Octane channel celebrating the release of WORLD ON FIRE. SLASH and his band performed a private show last night (Sept 15) at Santos Party House in New York City. The concert is available on SiriusXM On Demand via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices or online at Siriusxm.com. “SLASH Week” also features SLASH hosting a live special from the SiriusXM studios–with special co-host MYLES KENNEDY, lead singer of SLASH’s band The Conspirators.  Every hour today (Sept 16) Sirius Octane will debut tracks from his new album WORLD ON FIRE. On Friday, September 19 at 6:00 pm ET, SLASH will guest host on Ozzy Osbourne’s SiriusXM channel “Ozzy’s Boneyard.”  SLASH will spin tunes from his storied rock career and tell the stories behind the songs.  Hear SLASH with Guns N’ Roses, Slash’s Snakepit, Velvet Revolver, and tracks from his new album WORLD ON FIRE all weekend long.

Beginning Tuesday, September 23, SLASH will celebrate the release of WORLD ON FIRE by returning to the iconic guitarist’s stomping grounds with a series of three very special sold-out club shows: September 23 (The Troubadour) and then, moving up the hill to the world-famous Sunset Strip, September 25 (The Roxy) and September 26 (The Whisky A Go Go).

We were lucky enough to catch Slash ft. Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators when they performed a last minute show at The Fillmore due to Aerosmith having to cancel their Concord show for health reasons. It was amazing to imagine that the concert was only five hours in the planning and it went off without a hitch. The crowd included many fans who were supposed to be at the Concord show and raced over once they heard the official announcement as well as fans who were not able to afford the Concord show or get good tickets. They were then treated to a night full of stellar rock n roll that included a set that lasted well over 2 hours. Check out a slideshow of photos by our Rockin Ryan of their set:

Make sure to head over to iTunes and pick up your copy of World on Fire, it is pure aural porn and will have you in a dizzying rock n roll spell.  Visit their social media sites so you can stay up to date on their latest news.  I will leave you with a video of Slash and Myles performing an acoustic version of Bent to Fly at Planet Rock Live Sessions.

Yesterday we received word that the Aerosmith/SLASH concert at Concord Pavilion was cancelled due to illness of drummer Joey Kramer. No more than a couple hours after, we received word that SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators have confirmed a show for the same night at The Fillmore San Francisco.  Slash made sure to LET ROCK RULE as they quickly put together a show that would takeover San Francisco!

The line circled around the block as die hard fans were glad to be there for the just announced concert. It was amazing to imagine that the concert was only five hours in the planning and it went off without a hitch. The crowd included many fans who were supposed to be at the Concord show and raced over once they heard the official announcement as well as fans who were not able to afford the Concord show or get good tickets. They were then treated to a night full of stellar rock n roll that included a set that lasted well over 2 hours.

I have seen Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators about five times and each time, they seem to outdo themselves. They are such a solid band that delivers pure epic sound that surpasses studio quality. Myles’ vocals are superb as they deliver emotion and power through each note. I have often said that man could sing the menu at Starbucks and sound amazing! He truly excels at his art. Frank was a madman on rhythm guitar and yet he makes it look so easy. Brent on drums, once again delighted us with his precision and solid drumming. Todd is a bad ass bassist and highlights his magnetic personality with his charismatic stage presence. Last, but never the least is Slash who performed at a 150%, bleeding the passion and energy into his playing. He is just jaw dropping to watch, when he solos –  you listen! You are just held captive by his prowess and his impeccable playing. It was one amazing set.

Set List:

  • You’re a Lie
  • Nightrain
  • Halo
  • Standing in the Sun
