To celebrate the oncoming storm that is Slash’s new album, Orgy of the Damned, he’s taking his guitar talents to Jimmy Kimmel Live! from May 20th-22nd. Orgy of the Damned releases wherever you get your music on May 17th. Slash will be performing a selection of songs from his star-studded new Blues album alongside Cleto and the Cletones on ABC and available the next day on Hulu and YouTube.

Slash has a new video for his track “Papa Was A Rolling Stone” featuring Demi Lovato on vocals coming out the day of the album release. That track follows the previous two singles released from the album, “Oh Well” and “Killing Floor.” “Oh Well” features Chris Stapleton on vocals, you can check out the track here. “Killing Floor” has AC/DC singer Brian Johnson on vocals and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith on harmonica. Check out the video right here.

SLASH’s Orgy of the Damned is available for pre-order worldwide digitally, and on vinyl and CD via Gibson Records HERE.

A vibrant homage to the blues, SLASH’s star-studded blues album and sixth solo album of his career overall, Orgy of the Damned is a collection of 12 dynamic songs that revitalize the blues with a stripped-down approach. By celebrating both well-known and largely undiscovered songs, SLASH offers a nostalgic nod to the past while reinvigorating the songs with his inimitable guitar playing and the spirit of collaboration. For Orgy of the Damned, the acclaimed guitarist reteamed with storied producer Mike Clink and enlisted the album’s diverse guest vocalists, which include Gary Clark Jr, Billy F. Gibbons, Chris Stapleton, Dorothy, Iggy Pop, Paul Rodgers, Demi Lovato, Brian Johnson, Tash Neal, Chris Robinson, and Beth Hart. Rounding out his blues band in the studio and on the road, SLASH reunited with two of his bandmates from his Blues Ball outfit in the 90s, bassist Johnny Griparic and keyboardist Teddy ‘ZigZag’ Andreadis, and brought on drummer Michael Jerome and singer/guitarist Tash Neal.
