Myles Kennedy to Release Sophomore Solo Album

The highly anticipated follow-up to Year of The Tiger will be released on Napalm Record on May 14 and is available to pre-order now.

Myles Kennedy has to be one of the busiest guys in the music industry. When he’s not touring or recording with Alter Bridge and Slash and the Conspirators, he’s working on his solo material. Kennedy has used the recent downtime to get to work on his second solo album, The Ides of March

As with his debut album, Kennedy was joined by Zia Uddin, who was also part of The Mayfield Four, on drums and bassist/manager Tim Tournier. The album was produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette. The Ides of March is said to incorporate Myles’ love of rock, blues, and country, and if the single “In Stride” is anything to go by, will have a very different sound to his first solo release. 

You can get a taste of the upcoming album right here, with the video for the new single “In Stride.”

 

“Chill out. That pretty much sums it up,” explains Myles Kennedy about the single. “The lyric paints a picture of a survivalist preparing for an impending zombie apocalypse. It was inspired by the first wave of lockdowns as everyone was buying vast amounts of toilet paper and supplies. I started to ask myself if it might be wise to try and gain some perspective and not overreact… keep calm and carry on.”

You can pre-order your copy of The Ides of March here. There are many different limited-edition versions, including various colored vinyl and also a box set.
