Slash - SIGNED Orgy Of The Damned Double Vinyl Giveaway

Today, Slash, the iconic, Grammy-winning guitarist and songwriter returns with his star-studded debut blues album on Gibson Records. To celebrate the release of Orgy Of The Damned, and as a sign of appreciation to his fans here in Europe, Slash has given Townsend Music a copy of the record to give away on Double Vinyl, signed by Slash himself!

 

A great cover takes something old and makes it new again. This is the philosophy behind Slash’s new album, Orgy of the Damned, a collection of twelve dynamic songs that shakes up and revitalises blues classics with a stripped-down, instinctive approach. By celebrating both well-known and largely undiscovered songs, Slash offers a nostalgic nod to the past while reinvigorating the songs with his inimitable guitar playing and the spirit of collaboration.

For Orgy of the Damned, the acclaimed guitarist reteamed with storied producer Mike Clink and enlisted the album’s diverse guest vocalists, which include Gary Clark Jr, Billy F. Gibbons, Chris Stapleton, Dorothy, Iggy Pop, Paul Rodgers, Demi Lovato, Brian Johnson, Tash Neal, Chris Robinson, and Beth Hart. Rounding out his blues band in the studio and on the road,  Slash reunited with two of his bandmates from his Blues Ball outfit in the 90s, bassist Johnny Griparic and keyboardist Teddy ‘ZigZag’ Andreadis, and brought on drummer Michael Jerome and singer/guitarist Tash Neal.

Slash has released the new track 'Oh Well', which features outlaw country star Chris Stapleton on vocals, and is a transcendent and electrified, bluesy folk-infused take on the Fleetwood Mac gem, written by original founder Peter Green.


"I knew from the beginning I wanted to do the song on this record. It was also one of the songs that I was trying to figure out who would be the right vocalist for it, and one of the ideas I had was Chris Stapleton, who is one of the most brilliant singer songwriters today. He’s also got such a gritty and distinctive voice, so I called him up and he did an amazing job. I mean, his voice is so cool.” - Slash on 'Oh Well'

The first single off Orgy of the Damned was 'Killing Floor' feat. Brian Johnson of AC/DC on vocals, and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith on harmonica which Rolling Stone hailed “a freewheeling bluesy solo,” and American Songwriter described as “rocking”.



To record the album, the group went into a rehearsal room in North Hollywood and began hashing out soulful, rollicking takes on the classic songs. Everything was played live in the room, with an emphasis on improvisation, which resulted in a collection of dynamic, energized songs that are immediate, raw, and distinctly familiar.


Orgy Of the Damned is out now on Double Vinyl and CD alongside Album T-Shirt from the Official Slash Store.
