“You’re A Lie”, the new single from legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N’ ROSES), can be seen below. The clip was filmed in early April at Lot 28 at Universal Studios in California 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 in March in Louisiana, with Anne Heche and others confirmed for the cast.
“You’re A Lie” comes off Slash‘s second solo album, “Apocalyptic Love”, due on May 22 via his own label Dik Hayd International distributed through EMI.
“‘You’re A Lie’ is the second song I brought to the band in 2011 during the last tour,” explains Slash. “We worked on it at soundcheck somewhere, I can’t remember where. It’s gone through some minor changes along the way, mainly the chorus. But for the most part, it’s remained true to its original arrangement. I can’t wait to play this live.”
