Few names invoke as much majesty in the world of melodic death metal than Swedish …
Oh Slash fans it has been a WHILE hasn’t it? Worry no more: the legendary guitarist, and partner in crime Myles Kennedy will be returning with his merry band of Conspirators in 2019!
Anyone who’s ever seen the Guns N’ Roses alumni live can attest to his musical prowess; the same can be said for Myles Kennedy’s insane vocal range. Of course, he was here in 2017 with the original lineup of GNR but fans of the instantly recognisable guitarist have had a long wait to see him come solo. Slash Ft. Miles & The Conspirators have played Soundwave and their own headline shows here, but it’s been over four long years since they’ve hit our shores with solo material on deck. Sorry Adelaide, you’re out of luck this time but Perth have managed to squeeze in a fun little spot.
Slash will return to Australia supporting his latest solo record Living The Dream (The guitarist’s third with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators); but it’s likely you’ve heard it already, with the record debuting at #4 on the Australian ARIA charts. Reflecting on the record released on his own label imprint with Sony Music Australia, Snakepit Records, Slash says: “Making records and touring and getting up on stage every day and playing music with these guys, that is the essence of living the dream. And that’s why I was always deadset on getting back together with this band and continuing to do this… The Conspirators story is not over yet.”
