Last month, SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS called out to fans to help create their new live music video at the band's electrifying two-hour show on the final date of their sold-out fall U.S. headlining tour at the Palladium in Hollywood, California. Fans shot live footage of the concert via the Cinebody app which was assembled by director and editor Clifton Collins to create the final "Mind Your Manners" clip.
"It was great to involve the fans to make this video," says Slash. "They did an awesome job! Having Clifton shoot as well as edit it all together was just perfect."
"Mind Your Manners" is taken from SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS' latest album, "Living The Dream", which was released in September via Slash's own label Snakepit Records, in partnership with Roadrunner Records.
Regarding the "Mind Your Manners" track, Slash says: "I wrote this song on the spot to help the band get up and running once we got back in the studio this past January. It's just a go-for-it type of song. Pretty straightforward rock and fun to play."
Kennedy adds: "'Mind Your Manners' was something I didn't hear until the guys had started jamming together. It's a cool, up-tempo sort of thing and I knew immediately it would have its own place on this record. Lyrically, it's about how when things are going well there always tends to be someone who tries to rain on your parade and knock you down. You have to keep people like that in check and not let them get to you."
"Living The Dream" is Slash's fourth solo album, and third with Slash and his bandmates Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass and vocals) and Frank Sidoris (guitar and vocals). The artwork was created by renowned visual artist Ron English.
