“’Call of the Wild’ is a riff I brought to the band when we were on a break during the ‘World on Fire tour,” explains Slash. “I can’t remember the exact nucleus of where it came from, but it was a cool riff and something I felt strongly about. In my mind, it was always of paramount importance to get back to that particular riff and chord progression. Sometimes, you get an idea and you’re committed to it and you have to see it through. And this song was one of those ideas.”
“It’s probably one of my favorite riffs on the record,” adds Myles Kennedy. “The whole thing came together nicely. The lyric revolves around the idea of burning out on this technology-obsessed world that we live in and coming to the realization that it’s time to power down and get back to the essence of living. ‘Call of the Wild,’ you know?”

The group--Slash (guitars), Myles Kennedy (lead vocals), Todd Kerns (bass), Brent Fitz(drums) and Frank Sidoris (rhythm guitar)–are touring worldwide in support of their acclaimed third album LIVING THE DREAM and just released the new single “Mind Your Manners”--which Rolling Stone hailed “a menacing blues-rocker”—which climbed to #26 this week at Rock radio. “Mind Your Manners” follows the first single “Driving Rain”--Slash’s fastest rising single to date—which recently became the band’s 5th Top 5 radio hit in a row.
Loudwire hailed “Mind Your Manners” as “the album’s most infectious rock single” while Rolling Stone added “The guitarist alternates between ragged power chords and squealing solos throughout the song; on the chorus, Kennedy layers his voice into stacked harmonies.” Elsewhere, The Guardian described the riff-rocker, “slithers and slides, with a dirty boogie.”
The group called-out to fans who created a live music video of their electrifying two hour show on the final date of their sold-out, U.S. headlining tour last fall.
