SLASH FT. MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS (L-R): FRANK SIDORIS (guitar & vocals), TODD KERNS (bass & vocals), MYLES KENNEDY (vocals), SLASH (guitar), and BRENT FITZ (drums).
For 4, SLASH and the band traveled across the country via bus together to Nashville, TN, and recorded the new album at the historic RCA Studio A with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile), revealing a stunning new sound and style, all captured live in the studio. Cobb shared the band’s desire to lay down the tracks live, in the studio including guitar solos and vocals--a first for the group. The band’s previous albums over the last decade Apocalyptic Love, World on Fire, and Living The Dream have continued on an upward trajectory, all achieving Top 5 Billboard charting debuts in the U.S. and reaching the Top 10 on 12 major charts across the globe. To date, the three SMKC albums have now garnered 7 consecutive Top 10 Radio singles, spawned sold-out world tours, and have earned SLASH and the band the best critical acclaim of their career with their latest album Living The Dream (2018) singled out by the Los Angeles Times, Classic Rock, Guitar World, Loudwire, LA Weekly, and more, as their best songs to date.
In light of the 30-year alliance between Gibson and the GRAMMY Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee SLASH, the new SMKC album 4, has the added distinction of being the first-ever album release on Gibson Records, the new label, which is headquartered in the iconic American instrument brand’s hometown of Music City, Nashville, TN. On February 11, 2022, Gibson will commemorate SLASH FT. MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS’ first studio album with Gibson Records, with a limited--edition release of the SLASH Les Paul Standard 4 Album Edition guitar and package.
