In May 2012 SLASH stormed the charts worldwide with the release of his second solo album, APOCALYPTIC LOVE. Registering a No 4 chart entry in the USA and No 2 in Canada, Slash replicated this success in both Europe and Australasia with a further 13 Top 10 chart entries. Testament to a unique artist who has produced an incredible album.
APOCALYPTIC LOVE features SLASH and his bandmates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators -- Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass)-- and is out now on SLASH’s own label DikHayd International in the US and through Roadrunner Records in Europe, Middle East, and Africa.
In the UK, the album was also released in an exclusive Classic Rock Fan Pack form – providing a unique collectable package containing the studio album with bonus tracks alongside a specially created magazine with unseen behind-the-scenes content put together by Classic Rock magazine.
APOCALYPTIC LOVE followed his 2010 debut album Slash (also released in Fan Pack format and which has now sold over 100,000 copies in the UK alone) and his November2011 first-ever live solo album, the two-CD/DVD set Made In Stoke 24/7/11.
Following a sold out date at Hammersmith Apollo and a show stealing headline of the second stage at Download Festival in June 2012, Slash returns to the UK in October 2012 for a series of headline shows:
Sunday 7th October 2012 Edinburgh Corn Exchange
Monday 8th October 2012 Manchester, O2 Apollo
Tuesday 9th October Birmingham, NIA
Thursday 11th October Brixton, O2 Academy
