Mark Morton, the prolific guitarist of Lamb of God, has released the song “Save Defiance.” The track features Slash and Alter Bridge vocalist Myles Kennedy, with Alice in Chains’ Mike Inez on bass and Korn’s Ray Luzier on drums.
“Myles was our first and only choice for ‘Save Defiance’,” Morton says. “He’s such a tremendous talent and a remarkably down-to-earth and humble dude. Even before the instrumental pre-production demo was finished, we knew we were going to ask Myles to sing on it. We felt like it was a perfect fit for his voice. He dug the track and made it his own. I’m grateful to have had the chance to work with him.”
Following the recent release of the music video for the first single ‘Year Of The Tiger’, Myles Kennedy has released a lyric video for another song from the upcoming debut solo album. ‘Haunted By Design’ is the second track released from “Year Of The Tiger”, the upcoming album available worldwide on March 9th via Napalm Records. The video for the song can be seen HERE.

On Year Of The Tiger, Kennedy embarks on his first venture as a solo artist by embracing musical elements and influences he hasn’t explored until this point in his career. His appreciation for the blues and acoustic based music can be heard throughout the 12-song concept record inspired by the loss of his father when he was a child.
He is the distinctive voice of Alter Bridge. He as well gained incredible recognition with being the voice of Slash’s back band Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. He jammed with members of Led Zeppelin, he worked with the best of the best… he is undeniably one of the greatest rock singers of our time.
After the successful collaboration between Alter Bridge and Napalm Records, Myles Kennedy as well decided to sign with the Austrian label to release his long-awaited first solo album.
