The hardest working singer in rock music, Myles Kennedy, just released the latest music video for the song “The Great Beyond” from his debut solo album Year Of The Tiger.The new video comes on the heels of wrapping a US tour run with Slash and The Conspirators on the success of their latest single “Driving Rain.” The video is shot in black and white and features performance footage of the song from various stops on Myles’ sold-out summer tour of Europe, a tour that saw him perform the material live for the first time with his backing band from the album: Tim Tournier on bass and Zia Uddin on drums and percussion. You can watch the video for “The Great Beyond” here: https://youtu.be/nXbfZL5kttM and Year Of The Tiger is available now wherever music is sold or by clicking here:  http://smarturl.it/MK-YearOfTheTiger.

Myles Kennedy, not one to spend a lot of time at home, is heading back out on tour of the United States in support of his critically acclaimed debut solo album Year Of The Tiger, courtesy of Napalm Records. The 18-date US tour will kick-off on November 13th in Chicago, IL and run through December 16th where it wraps up in Seattle, WA. Along the way, the tour will make stops in Milwaukee, WI; Cleveland, OH; Hartford, CT and Atlanta, GA among others. The performances will feature music from the critically acclaimed solo album as well as selections from Myles’ work with Alter Bridge, The Mayfield Four and Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. Walking Papers will be openers on all of the dates as well. All shows are currently on-sale and all tour information including ticket links and VIP information for all dates can be found at www.MylesKennedy.com.

On the Year Of The Tiger album, Myles embarked on his first venture as a solo artist by embracing musical elements and influences he hadn’t explored previously in his career. Kennedy himself played banjo, lap steel, bass, and mandolin in addition to guitar throughout the album. The emotional journey and personal story of Myles is captured in a bluesy-americana album with a twist of country and rock, swirling and flowing around the incredible, soulful voice that the world has come to know. As MetalSucks.com declared: “Kennedy is the Robert Plant of our times.”

Myles Kennedy burst on the music scene in 1990, but it wasn¹t until 1995, through his band The Mayfield Four, that he gained some notoriety. It was when the Mayfield Four toured opening for hitmakers Creed that Myles Kennedy would meet Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips. This meeting would eventually lead to the formation of Alter Bridge, the band that would become Myles¹ calling card to the world. The band released their debut album One Day Remains that would end up being certified Gold by the RIAA and the band would go on to sell millions of records worldwide over the course of 5 studio albums with the band. In 2008, the legacy of Myles Kennedy was circling the music industry and eventually found its way to members of Led Zeppelin. A now legendary story, Myles was asked to jam with Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham for a potential project that never materialized. In 2009, Guns N¹ Roses guitarist Slash was working on a solo project and tapped Myles Kennedy to do vocals on 2 songs on that release. That partnership would lead to Myles becoming the vocalist for his other rock band, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. They have released 2 albums under that moniker. This relationship would also lead to Myles Kennedy singing for the iconic Guns N¹ Roses at their Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction in 2012 after band founder Axl Rose was unable to attend. Through Myles’ various projects, he has appeared on The Tonight Show; Jimmy Kimmel Live; Conan; has had music used by the WWE, Major League Baseball and NASCAR to name a few; and appeared in the motion picture Rock Star. 2018 will mark a new chapter in Myles¹ career as he will be releasing his long-awaited debut solo album Year Of The Tiger. The album is a whole new direction for Myles creatively and showcases the talent that has made him one of the premiere frontmen in modern music today.

Zoiks! Online Interviews: Chris Adler of Lamb of God

If you’re into heavy music you know about what went down with Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe this summer. If you follow the news in general you may have heard this story. On June 27 Randy Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic for essentially manslaughter. Two years prior, a 19-year-old fan Daniel Nosek had allegedly jumped on stage (as many as three times) and allegedly was pushed off stage by Randy Blythe in which he fell on his head, went into a coma and died a month later. Nobody in Lamb of God knew about this incident until the arrest. Blythe remained in prison until early August garnering tons of a support from not only the metal community but also the music community as a whole.

Randy’s out now and they’re out on tour with In Flames, Sylosis, Hatebreed and Hell Yeah. They released a great new album “Resolution” back in January. I got the chance to chat with drummer Chris Adler regarding the incident in Prague as well as the upcoming tour and “Resolution.”
