SLASH To Release Three-Disc Special Enhanced Edition Of ‘Apocalyptic Love’

Legendary guitarist Slash (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER) will release a special three-disc special enhanced edition of his acclaimed sophomore album, “Apocalyptic Love”, exclusively at Best Buy on November 19. The collection includes the full 15-track version of the CD, including bonus songs “Crazy Life” and “Carolina”, eight unreleased acoustic tracks from the group’s Guitar Center Sessions as well as the “Live From NY” concert DVD from Slash‘s sold-out record-release show filmed live at Irving Plaza in New York City. The special enhanced edition will also include a collectible guitar pick tin.

In radio news, “Standing In The Sun”, the second single off “Apocalyptic Love”, is now a #1 hit at Mainstream Rock radio. The song — cited by RollingStone.com as “a standout track” — is the follow-up to first single “You’re A Lie”, which marked Slash‘s first-ever #1 hit at rock radio.

“Apocalyptic Love”, came out in May and was recently certified gold in Australia by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) for sales in excess of 35,000 copies.

“[The album has] been really well received and I was really pleased with the record in the first place; it’s great,” Slash said. “You never know what exactly is going to happen and I never have any what you’d call expectations, but once it’s out there and people sort of dig it for the right reasons, it’s always a good feeling.”

Slash recently revealed that he and singer Myles Kennedy have already begun working on music for the guitarist’s next album, to be recorded sometime next year.

“We are working on material, gathering ideas for another [record] at this point,” Slash told Rapid City Journal. “We are sort of like in those early stages where I’m just recording different guitar ideas and I turn Myles on to it. He’s thinking about his stuff and what he’s going to do with it and so on.”
