A decade and four albums into their career, the universally acclaimed album 4 –which debuted as the #1 Most-Selling Hard Rock Album, and at #2 on the ARIA (Australian) chart–is SMKC like you’ve never heard them before. A vibrant rock album fueled by memorable guitar hooks and compelling melodies, big choruses, and even bigger riffs4 hits on a wide range of sounds, styles, and moods in 10 songs, and does it all with laser-sharp musical focus and a lightning-in-a-bottle sense of immediacy.

The fourth studio album from SMKC and SLASH’s fifth solo album overall, SLASH and his bandmates MYLES KENNEDY (Vocals), TODD KERNS (Bass & Vocals), BRENT FITZ (Drums), and FRANK SIDORIS (Guitar & Vocals), partnered with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile), on 4 resulting in the band’s strongest album to date. Recorded at RCA Studio A in Nashville, Cobb shared the band’s desire to lay down the tracks live in the studio–including guitar solos and vocals–revealing a stunning, vital sound and style all captured live.

Listen to SMKC’s album 4, available everywhere via Gibson Records HERE.

The album kicks off with opening track “The River is Rising”—which reached #7 on the Rock Charts, making it the band’s 8th, consecutive Top 10 hit single at radio—as one of the band’s toughest and most dynamic compositions to date, unravelling via a menacing, tightly-coiled riff and deep-in-the-pocket groove. “April Fool” followed the successful first single “The River Is Rising.” SMKC performed “The River Is Rising” which Rolling Stone hailed as “raucous” and Billboard acclaimed as “euphoric” with a surging main riff, dissonant hooks, an infectious chorus, and a guitar solo that conjures images of a rowdy bar brawl” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!HERE.

4 is a standout album that grabs hold, and never lets go, from the deliberate stomp rock of “Whatever Gets You By,” the bright-toned, heart-on-sleeve pop-rocker “Fill My World,” to the talk box-drenched guitar hooks of “C’est La Vie,” exotica-tinged psychedelic fever dream of “Spirit Love,” the anthemic swell of “The Path Less Followed,” to the cowbell-inflected boogie-shake of “Actions Speak Louder Than Words,” the grimy Aerosmith-esque funk of “April Fool,” to the rampaging attack of “Call Off the Dogs,” and climaxing with the epic, six minute album closer “Fall Back to Earth.”

4 has generated some of the most positive critical accolades in the group’s history including:

 “Musically stinging crunch-rock… beautifully melodic.” – USA Today

“On 4, the fourth record by Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, he [Slash] captured the mojo he was after by recording most of the album live in a mere 10 days at Nashville’s RCA Studio A… For Slash, recording off the cuff was as liberating as he had hoped it would be, and not second-guessing himself contributed to the album’s eclecticism.

There’s the heart-aching power ballad ‘Fall Back to Earth’ the glam-banging ‘Actions Speak Louder Than Words’ and the euphoric first single, ‘The River Is Rising,’ which features a surging main riff, dissonant hooks, an infectious chorus and a guitar solo that conjures images of a rowdy bar brawl.” – Billboard

’4’ is their best album to date.” – Premier Guitar  

“From the insistent churn of the opening track and first single ‘The River Is Rising,’ to the slippery funk rhythms of ‘April Fool,’ the dinosaur-sized stomp of ‘Whatever Gets You By’ to the off-to-the-races sprint of ‘Call Of The Dogs,’ 4 hits with the immediacy of a great live show. …Slash & Co color outside the lines on tracks like the slinky, Eastern-tinged ‘Spirit Love’ and the uncharacteristically major-key pop-rock workout ‘Fill My World,’ as well as the widescreen epic ballad ‘Fall Back to Earth’ which closes the record in dramatic fashion. Overall, it’s a leaner, harder and more expansive take on the SMKC sound.”

– Guitar World

“The whole album is a masterpiece. If you want to know what real rock-and-roll sounds like, crack it up nice and loud.”  — Metal Insider

“The ‘River Is Rising’ marks the first new music in three years from Slash and his band, and it doesn’t disappoint. There’s a metallic stomp to the track, which opens with a tremolo riff that would be at home in a black metal song. From there, quintet lock into a four-on-the-floor groove as Kennedy alternates between epic singing and cleaner melodies during the chorus. Overall, there’s plenty to satiate both hard rock and metal fans”.

– Consequence Of Sound

Special guests are British rockers, The Struts who have been a live sensation since they first erupted onto the scene with their certified Platinum anthem, “Could’ve Been Me,” introducing the world to their triumphant, timeless rock sound. Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut Everybody Wants, they set out on the road, bringing their energetic tracks alive on stage with larger-than-life performances and cementing their reputation as a must-see live act. The Struts have opened for the likes of The Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, and Guns N’ Roses, while selling out shows across the globe and leaving a trail of unbridled rock collections. Their on-stage prowess and perpetual musicality have allowed them to reach #1 on Spotify’s Viral Top 50, more than 850M on-demand streams, and put them in the studio collaborating with KeshaTom MorelloRobbie WilliamsDef Leppard and more.

Rose Tattoo is one of Australia’s most revered rock bands fronted by Angry Anderson. Hailing from the late ‘70s and eight studio albums under their belts, their first four albums yielded the hits “Bad Boy For Love,” “Rock ‘n’ Roll Outlaw,” “Nice Boys” and “Scarred for Life” and have persisted with many changes over the decades. They were inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in 2006 and in 1993 re-formed to open for Guns N Roses on their Australian tour.

Following are the current SMKC international tour dates with additional shows to be announced soon.
