SLASH and his bandmates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators have released “WORLD ON FIRE” the first single and title track off their new album today, Friday the 13th at radio.

On September 16, SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators will release their new album WORLD ON FIRE via SLASH’s own label Dik Hayd International distributed through Caroline. The group have revealed the cover artwork for WORLD ON FIRE designed by American contemporary artist Ron English (see below). The disc marks SLASH’s third solo album and second one with his band The Conspirators featuring MYLES KENNEDY (vocals), BRENT FITZ (drums) and TODD KERNS (bass).
For WORLD ON FIRE, SLASH and his band tapped Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Falling In Reverse, Incubus) to produce. Among the 17 songs is an instrumental–a powerful new turn for the band. WORLD ON FIRE is the follow-up to 2012’s Apocalyptic Love which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and earned SLASH two No. 1 U.S. rock radio hits–his first-ever solo–with “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” SLASH officially began recording as a solo artist with his self-titled 2010 debut album which employed a different vocalist on each track of his first album including Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and Myles Kennedy among others.
