SLASH (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) has just released his new single, 'You're A Lie', from his upcoming album, Apocalyptic Love, which will be released on Slash’s own label, Dik Hayd International, distributed through EMI in the US and Universal Music in Canada, on May 22nd. The song is currently streaming online at BraveWords.com - head to the left-hand-side of the site to launch the KnuckleTracks Online Audio Player.
"'You're A Lie' is the second song I brought to the band in 2011 during the last tour,” explains Slash. “We worked on it at soundcheck somewhere, I can't remember where. It's gone through some minor changes along the way, mainly the chorus. But for the most part, it's remained true to its original arrangement. I can't wait to play this live."
Slash has been holed up in a Los Angeles studio with producer Eric Valentine working on his new album with MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS - featuring bandmates Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass). Cameras have been rolling throughout the entire making of the new album. Check out all four exclusive behind-the-scenes episodes airing weekly below:
