The newly announced The River Is Rising- Rest of the World Tour ’24 will come to Dublin’s 3Arena on 28th March, and will see SMKC hit 21 countries, and 32 cities across the globe.

A decade and four albums into their career, the universally acclaimed album 4 –which debuted as the #1 Most-Selling Hard Rock Album–is SMKC like you’ve never heard them before. A vibrant rock album fueled by memorable guitar hooks and compelling melodies, big choruses, and even bigger riffs4 hits on a wide range of sounds, styles, and moods in 10 songs, and does it all with laser-sharp musical focus and a lightning-in-a-bottle sense of immediacy.

The fourth studio album from SMKC and SLASH’s fifth solo album overall, SLASH and his bandmates MYLES KENNEDY (Vocals), TODD KERNS (Bass & Vocals), BRENT FITZ (Drums), and FRANK SIDORIS (Guitar & Vocals), partnered with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile), on 4 resulting in the band’s strongest album to date. Recorded at RCA Studio A in Nashville, Cobb shared the band’s desire to lay down the tracks live in the studio–including guitar solos and vocals–revealing a stunning, vital sound and style all captured live.

Listen to SMKC’s album 4, available everywhere via Gibson Records HERE.

The album kicks off with opening track “The River is Rising”—which reached #7 on the Rock Charts, making it the band’s 8thconsecutive Top 10 hit single at radio—is one of the band’s toughest and most dynamic compositions to date, unraveling via a menacing, tightly-coiled riff and deep-in-the-pocket groove. “April Fool” followed the successful first single “The River Is Rising”SMKC performed “The River Is Rising” which Rolling Stone hailed as “raucous” and Billboard acclaimed as “euphoric” with “a surging main riff, dissonant hooks, an infectious chorus, and a guitar solo that conjures images of a rowdy bar brawl” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!HERE.

4 is a standout album that grabs hold, and never lets go, from the deliberate stomp rock of “Whatever Gets You By,” the bright-toned, heart-on-sleeve pop-rocker “Fill My World,” to the talk box-drenched guitar hooks of “C’est La Vie,” exotica-tinged psychedelic fever dream of “Spirit Love,” the anthemic swell of “The Path Less Followed,” to the cowbell-inflected boogie-shake of “Actions Speak Louder Than Words,” the grimy Aerosmith-esque funk of “April Fool,” to the rampaging attack of “Call Off the Dogs,” and climaxing with the epic, six minute album closer “Fall Back to Earth.”

SMKC’s 2024 international dates mark some of the band’s biggest headlining shows since the 2022 release of 4, which has generated some of the most positive critical accolades in the group’s history including:

“musically stinging crunch-rock… beautifully melodic.”

USA TODAY

“On 4, the fourth record by Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, he [Slash] captured the mojo he was after by recording most of the album live in a mere 10 days at Nashville’s RCA Studio A… For Slash, recording off the cuff was as liberating as he had hoped it would be, and not second-guessing himself contributed to the album’s eclecticism. There’s the heart-aching power ballad ‘Fall Back to Earth’ the glam-banging ‘Actions Speak Louder Than Words’ and the euphoric first single, ‘The River Is Rising,’ which features a surging main riff, dissonant hooks, an infectious chorus and a guitar solo that conjures images of a rowdy bar brawl.”

BILLBOARD

“On the album, Slash delivers a collection of unflinching hard rock riffs that showcase his tenure as a world-class guitarist.”

THE TENNESSEAN

“From the insistent churn of the opening track and first single ‘The River Is Rising,’ to the slippery funk rhythms of ‘April Fool,’ the dinosaur-sized stomp of ‘Whatever Gets You By’ to the off-to-the-races sprint of ‘Call Of The Dogs,’ 4 hits with the immediacy of a great live show. …Slash & Co color outside the lines on tracks like the slinky, Eastern-tinged ‘Spirit Love’ and the uncharacteristically major-key pop-rock workout ‘Fill My World,’ as well as the widescreen epic ballad ‘Fall Back to Earth’ which closes the record in dramatic fashion. Overall, it’s a leaner, harder and more expansive take on the SMKC sound.”

GUITAR WORLD (Cover)

The whole album is a masterpiece. If you want to know what real rock-and-roll sounds like, crack it up nice and loud.”

METAL INSIDER

“Album opener (and highlight) ‘The River Is Rising’ will be a live favorite, thanks to a stomping, Motörhead-style outro, steeped in Lemmy and Phil Taylor-isms. Elsewhere, ‘April Fool’ impresses thanks to a frankly filthy riff, while ballad ‘Fill My World’ is a proper showstopper.”

HOT PRESS (Ireland)

“An impressive feat.”

AMERICAN SONGWRITER (Cover)

“While there’s undeniable links to Zeppelin in the final product, hints of country guitar stylings are also evident in some of Slash’s remarkable guitar solos. On the very Guns N’ Roses styled track, ‘April Fool,’ Slash leans into the riff as the band hit the chordal accents in time. The guitar tone has serious bite, especially in the solo, where Slash drops in some nuanced country guitar licks.”

LOUD (Australia)

Slithering solos and crunchy choruses.”

DAILY MAIL

“Through the decades, Guitar hero Slash has gone beyond his Guns N’ Roses roots to create powerful collaborations with groups like Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, this team’s recent endeavor is a powerful album simply titled ‘4, on the brand new record label Gibson Records.”

GOLDMINE (Cover)

“At this point the Slash crew is well-honed, and 4 shows off the quintet’s brawny confidence along with a seamless interweaving of sources. In ‘The River Is Rising’- the opening track and first single – the quintet tears through a thunderous mingling of grunge (think Alice in Chains’ ‘Man in the Box’) with Tom Morello-leaning solo, ‘Paradise City’-style tempo changes and even a wink at Deep Purple‘s ‘Crazy’ at the very end. Not bad for a mere 3:42, and the confluence does not sound at all forced. … ‘The Path Less Followed’ is a cranking, punching riff rocker while ‘Actions Speak Louder Than Words’ chugs into heavy boogie… The six-and-a-half-minute [Fall Back to Earth’] comes like a hard-rock James Bond theme, dramatic and careening through texture changes as well as one of Slash’s trademark, biting solos – shades of the Use Your Illusion era.”

ULTIMATE CLASSIC ROCK

A solid album jam packed with soaring vocals, unforgettable melodies, large choruses, and riffs that will blow your mind.”

AQUARIAN

“The ‘River Is Rising’ marks the first new music in three years from Slash and his band, and it doesn’t disappoint. There’s a metallic stomp to the track, which opens with a tremolo riff that would be at home in a black metal song. From there, quintet lock into a four-on-the-floor groove as Kennedy alternates between epic singing and cleaner melodies during the chorus. Overall, there’s plenty to satiate both hard rock and metal fans”.
