The group revealed the cover artwork for World On Fire designed by American contemporary artist Ron English today. Featuring the blazing title track as the first single, the disc marks Slash's third solo album and second one with his band featuring Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass).

For 'World On Fire', Slash and his band tapped Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Alter Bridge, Falling In Reverse, Incubus) to produce. Among the 17 songs is an instrumental - a powerful new turn for the band.
'World On Fire' is the follow-up to 2012's critically acclaimed Apocalyptic Love which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and earned Slash two No. 1 U.S. rock radio hits - his first-ever solo - with "You're A Lie" and "Standing In The Sun."
Slash officially began recording as a solo artist with his self-titled 2010 debut album which employed a different vocalist on each track of his first album including Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and Myles Kennedy among others.
