    • Slash - At the Houston stop of his “Apocalyptic Love” tour, Slash once again proved why he’s the best in the game when it comes to six-string mastery. With a setlist stacked with everything from new epics such as “Standing in the Sun” to Guns N’ Roses classics like “Nightrain” and “Rocket Queen” to Velvet Revolver gems “Fall to Pieces” and “Slither”, he burned through a veritable powder keg of a show anchored by one explosive moment after another. As his perfect counterpart, singer Myles Kennedy [Alter Bridge] carried this myriad of classics to the heavens with unmatched skill and unbreakable prowess. These two are the ultimate singer and guitarist duo, and you’re going to “love” them even more with every show.”

    With "You're a Lie", the first single from his forthcoming album, Apocalyptic Love [Available May 22], Slash comes out of the gate swinging.

    A monolithic, distorted intro quickly gives way to an ultra-heavy and extremely catchy riff. You can practically feel the swagger of the legendary guitarist's fret work as the song moves into a brooding verse propelled by the bass wallop of Todd Kerns and pounding groove of Brent Fitz. With inimitable style, Myles Kennedy tells a story of betrayal. As soon as the anthemic hook kicks in, Kennedy's voice reaches impressive heights along with Slash's six-string fireworks.

    After a simultaneously mean and irresistible bridge, a fiery guitar solo blazes with the right combination of blues gusto and heavy metal attitude.

    Slash, Kennedy, and The Conspirators are everything that a rock 'n' roll band should be. They've got arena-ready choruses, mind-blowing riffs, scorching solos, and that magical chemistry that yields classic records. Make no mistake about it. They're as dangerous and daring as any of their previous projects, and they're out for blood on Apocalyptic Love.

    "You're a Lie" is one of the best rock songs of 2012, and it's a precursor to what's bound to be one of the year's best albums. This rock-n-fuckin'-roll at its finest. Get ready to be knocked on your ass…
