SLASH Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators unleashed WORLD ON FIRE (Sept. 2014) to worldwide praise, garnering SLASH some of the best critical acclaim of his career. The band and their new album continue to receive accolades including:

  • SLASH was honored with the Les Paul Award during the 30th annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards (Jan. 24);
  • “Artist and Album of the Year” from Ultimate Classic Rock, “Best Rock Album” from Guitar World magazine’s reader’s poll, “#1 on the Top 20 rock Albums of 2014” from Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles (BraveWords.com)  and Loudwire named Myles Kennedy “Best Vocalist” and Todd Kerns “Best Bassist.”
  • For SLASH’s October cover story in Guitar Player, writer Jude Gold said: “The group [Slash with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators] is now three albums into their career, and its latest, WORLD ON FIRE (Dik Hayd)—tracked as usual on analog tape–features some of the warmest-rock guitar textures, most dimensional and contrapuntal guitar arrangements, and most downright killin’riffs Slash has ever delivered. It also features camaraderie, chemistry, work ethic, and to use a rhythm section term, gelling that Slash-after paying more than his share of drama dues with those other two bands-certainly deserves. In Kennedy, Slash has found a lead singer who not only kills both the new stuff and the old, he also shows up to soundcheck on time. Guns, Revolver and Snakepit were all cool, but Slash, now playing huge crowds under his own name, and playing the music he wants to, has finally found his real dream band.”

SLASH’s third straight solo album to debut in the Top Ten in the U.S., WORLD ON FIRE also achieved over 12 Top Ten chart debuts around the world. The album’s title track and first single “World On Fire” ascended to #1 at U.S. Rock Radio. WORLD ON FIRE is SLASH’s second album with his official band The Conspirators which features MYLES KENNEDY (vocals), BRENT FITZ (drums) and TODD KERNS (bass). WORLD ON FIRE is the follow-up to the acclaimed Apocalyptic Love album (2012) which also stormed the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart debuting at #4 as the top rock album. Apocalyptic Love has the added distinction of spawning SLASH’s first-ever #1 rock radio solo hits: “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun” and with WORLD ON FIRE SLASH Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators have now hit their stride at rock radio and with fans worldwide.
