Legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N’ ROSES) returned to this year’s Slacker Canadian Music Week to participate in a celebrity interview on Friday, March 23 at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, Canada before a sold-out performance later that evening at The Phoenix Concert Theatre. Slash also sat down with John Derringer of the Toronto classic rock radio station Q107 to discuss his new solo album, “Apocalyptic Love”, as well as his appearance on BBC‘s “Top Gear” and Canadian Music Week.

As previously reported, Slash is currently shooting a “dark” video for his new single, “You’re A Lie”, with director Anthony Leonardi III. Leonardi is also helming the first feature film produced by Slash, called “Nothing To Fear”, which was recently picked up for distribution by Anchor Bay Entertainment. The movie is the first of a proposed series of horror films produced by Slash‘s company, called Slasher Films, which he launched last year in partnership with two other producers. The film began shooting last month in Louisiana, with Anne Heche and others confirmed for the cast.
“You’re A Lie” is the first single from Slash‘s second solo album, “Apocalyptic Love”, which will be released on May 22 via his own label Dik Hayd International distributed through EMI.
For the new album, Slash — along with and his bandmates Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass) — teamed with producer Eric Valentine, who also produced the “Slash” disc. All the songs were written together by Slash and Kennedy, and cameras have been rolling throughout the entire making of the album.
