Tune in alert as Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators will perform the new single “Standing In The Sun” from ‘Apocalyptic Love’ album on “Conan.”

Watch him this Thursday, October 4 AT 11:00 PM/10:00 PM CT as the Fall North American Tour wraps in Los Angeles October 3 in Los Angeles at the historic Wiltern Theatre.

Cited by RollingStone.com (5/20/12) as “a standout track,” the song is off their acclaimed studio album APOCALYPTIC LOVE, released May 22 on SLASH’s own label Dik Hayd International and distributed through EMI.

Slash and his bandmates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators--Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass) and Frank Sidoris (guitar)--are currently in the midst of their explosive fall headlining North American tour wrapping Wednesday, October 3 at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. The trek has earned critical accolades along the way:

“Slash took center stage for an extended riff-fest that was almost mesmerizing in its relentlessness. His arms slicked with sweat, Slash’s nimble playing was spine-tingling and his musicality simply inspiring…. The slow-burning “Starlight” and frantic musical exercise at the end of “Anastasia” bookended a Slash master class in guitar soloing that also demonstrated why he always winds up on those “best of” lists. He is one of the best, no doubt.” --Atlanta Journal Constitution (9/13/12)

 “Slash's new tunes--which accounted for a fourth of the 20-song set--sat nicely against the eclectic batch of songs from his eponymous debut solo album, which made up the largest portion of the set. It's a testament to Kennedy's prowess as a vocalist to be able to tackle songs originally sung by everyone from Scott Weiland and Axl Rose to Andrew Stockdale and Ian Astbury.” – GuitarWorld.com (5/23/12)                      

Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Times said: “Fans of his work in GNR and Velvet Revolver will find much to embrace in the album’s 13 tracks, ranging from the sneering rock hooks of ‘You’re a Lie’ and the heavy metal grind of ‘Halo’ to the extended instrumental passages on ‘Anastasia’” (May 24, 2012)
