SLASH has announced his highly anticipated sixth solo album ‘Orgy of the Damned’, due out on 17 May 2024 via Gibson Records.

The iconic, Grammy Award-winning guitarist and songwriter’s forthcoming release will feature a collection of 12 dynamic tracks that shake up and revitalize blues classics with a stripped down, instinctive approach.

First single ‘Killing Floor’ features Brian Johnson of AC/DC on vocals and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith on harmonica. The song is an electrifying, raucous and gleefully unbridled take on Howlin’ Wolf’s 1964 Chicago blues hit.

“‘Killing Floor’ is one of my favorite Howlin’ Wolf songs, but also one of the iconic blues riffs that turned me on as a young guitar player. I’ve always wanted to cover it in some capacity and this record was the perfect vehicle. But playing it with this band, and with Brian Johnson singing, it was an achievement I would never have imagined back then. Let alone Steven Tyler providing the harp.” – SLASH

“When Slash asked me to sing on ‘Killing Floor,’ I said yes immediately. It was one of the first songs I learned in my very first band, and when he played me the backing track it was a no-brainer, and Steven’s harmonica is so bloody hot. I had a ball with Slash in the studio, and I think we did this great old song justice. Rock on.” – Brian Johnson (AC/DC)

The accompanying music video offers a first look of SLASH and his blues band Johnny Griparic (bass), Teddy Andreadis (keyboards), Michael Jerome (drums), and Tash Neal (vocals/guitar), recording the song in the studio.
