Slash has ‘Apocalyptic Love’ in hand

It’s finished! Guitar guru Slash has completed work on his upcoming studio album, “Apocalyptic Love,” which features vocals and writing credits with Alter Bridge main man Myles Kennedy, and the album is mixed and mastered. The former Guns N’ Roses guitar slinger Tweeted the news today (March 15): “Been listening to the finished master of the new record in my car. I’m so … stoked! It sounds … awesome!”

“Apocalyptic Love” will arrive May 22 in North America and in the U.K. the day previous. Slash will trek to the U.K. to play a one-off show at London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo on June 6, just a few weeks after the U.K. release. Of course, that’s just the beginning for Slash. This, after all, is the guy who cut his touring teeth playing leads for the one and only Guns N’ Roses, so the road is home, and he plans to tour the globe this year.

Kennedy is also confirmed to tour with Slash throughout his 2012 schedule, playing with his band under the moniker Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. Slash’s U.S. trek kicks off May 3 in Baltimore, Md., and closes out May 26 in Albuquerque, N.M., including a gig May 19 at Rock on the Range in Columbus, Ohio. Check out Slash and Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators’ full upcoming tour roster, here.

The first single from “Apocalyptic Love,” an adrenaline-fueled track called “You’re a Lie,” hit rock radio like a lightning bolt on Feb. 27. Two days later, the track was officially declared the No. 1 most added song on active rock radio stations in the U.S. That’s certainly a good sign for Mr. Slash! (Photo via MSO PR.)
