Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have shared a thrilling new music video for “Boulevard of Broken Hearts”, a track which appeared on the famous rock guitarist’s latest solo studio album, Living The Dream.
The black-and-white video takes viewers across the pond and over to London, where the band is seen performing at the Eventim Apollo earlier this year back on February 20th. The video was directed by Dan Sturgess, who over the last few years has been at the helm of videos for other hard rock bands including Black Label Society and Alter Bridge, with the latter also featuring Slash’s current solo frontman, Myles Kennedy.

In addition to showing Slash and company performing “Boulevard of Broken Hearts”, the video also takes viewers outside the London venue where fans are seen waiting outside prior to the show underneath the lit marquee featuring the band’s name. Sturgess also captures a mix of backstage footage, with the band warming up before taking the stage in front of a sold-out audience. For the most part, the video is edited to slow-motion, which contrasts well alongside the song’s faster, high-energy feel. Shots of the band members rocking out and furiously playing their instruments are balanced by footage of fans having an equally wild time out in the audience.

The video’s arrival on Wednesday comes just a day after it was revealed that Slash’s other band, Guns N’ Roses, will headline both weekends of this year’s ACL Fest in Austin, TX come October. Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators will head out on their own run of summer tour dates in promotion of the new album beginning on July 15th in San Francisco.
