Listen to Myles Kennedy’s Latest Solo Track “Devil on the Wall”
Your MetalSucks overlords shot a very fun video segment with Myles Kennedy last week in which the singer of Alter Bridge, Slash’s solo band, ex-Mayfield Four and now, most aptly, for his own solo project, watched YouTube vocal covers of songs from throughout his catalog and reacted to them in real time. We’ll have that video ready to go in another week or so, and we promise you it will not disappoint! Myles was a real champ in watching them all and was hella impressed with the talent the Internet puts on display.
Covering Myles’ work is no small feat, of course: the dude is an absolutely powerhouse of a singer. Last month we dug on a track from his first ever solo album called “Haunted by Design,” and we’re just as stoked on his latest, “Devil on the Wall,” which just came out a few days ago. Neither has anything to do with metal or even hard rock; Kennedy’s solo album is an exploration of bluegrass, country, folk and all things Americana, and it’s fantastic all the way through. The newest single is a more upbeat number that’ll make it plain to see why so many critics (actually possibly just me) are calling him “the Robert Plant of our times” and at least one MetalSucks commenter is calling him “a poor man’s Chris Stapleton.” You decide who’s right.
Myles Kennedy’s debut solo album Year Of The Tiger comes out on March 9th via Napalm Records; pre-order here.
