SLASH has released “You’re A Lie” to the radio worldwide. The hard-charging song marks the first single off the iconic, Grammy-winning rock guitarist and songwriter’s forthcoming second studio album APOCALYPTIC LOVE. Listen to a 30 second preview of the song here: http://www.slashonline.com/“You’re A Lie” is the second song I brought to the band in 2011 during the last tour,” explains SLASH. “We worked on it at soundcheck somewhere, I can’t remember where. It’s gone through some minor changes along the way, mainly the chorus. But for the most part, it’s remained true to its original arrangement. I can’t wait to play this live.”

APOCALYPTIC LOVE features Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators and will be released May 22 on SLASH’s own label Dik Hayd International that’s distributed through EMI. The group will launch a headlining U.S. tour May 3 in Baltimore, tickets for which are available now on http://www.slashonline.com/.  See the full itinerary below, with more dates to be added.

On APOCALYPTIC LOVE, SLASH and his bandmates Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass) have teamed with producer Eric Valentine, who also produced the Slash disc. All the songs were written together by SLASH and Kennedy and cameras have been rolling throughout the entire making of the new album.
