Slash confirmed today he will be releasing his 3rd album, World On Fire, on September 16th. It's his 3rd album, and his second consecutive LP with his bandmates, Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. There will be 17 songs, with the first single, the title track, available on July 13th. Speaking of doing a second album with his bandmates, Slash says " We had a natural chemistry from the very beginning. The longer we have been together the more it has blossomed." And about the title of the album, "To be literal about it, we have the global warming thing. But that’s not the catalyst for the title. “World on Fire” is more of a tongue-in-cheek, positive, fun thing-- it has a lot of sexual connotations in the actual song itself. It’s a euphemism for going a little bit crazy and pulling out all the stops, " says Slash.
Slash and his band are on tour this summer with Aerosmith, with stops at The Nikon At Jones Beach Theatre July 10th, and The Prudential Center September 3rd.
