Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators Release New Song

Today sees the release of “Call Off The Dogs,” taken from Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators’ upcoming album 4. “Call Off The Dogs” is the third song to be released from the upcoming release. The first single to be released, “The River Is Rising,” was the fastest-rising radio debut of Slash‘s career. The new album 4 is the band’s first new music in four years. This will be Slash’s fifth solo album and fourth with fellow Conspirator bandmates Myles Kennedy, Brent Fitz, Todd Kerns, and Frank Sidoris.  

When describing the new song, Slash said, “This one was written pretty much on the fly, and in the spirit of the energy of the whole album 4. You can’t overthink something like this song because it kills the spirit. When we got into pre-production, ‘Call Off The Dogs’ came together fairly quickly – just jam it and that’s basically it. And it was probably the last thing that we recorded in the studio.”

Myles Kennedy added, “’Call Off The Dogs’ has that up-tempo vibe that helps elevate a record in a lot of ways, especially for rock fans. They want those songs. We needed a chorus section for it, so I messed with it a bit and sent it to Slash, and he took it to the next level and made it his own. Lyrically, it’s about that point where you wave the white flag and give in to someone after being pursued relentlessly.”
