With his solo band starting their first tour in over 30 months this September, Myles Kennedy is releasing another music video from his chart-topping sophomore release, The Ides Of March.
The video for “A Thousand Words” finds Kennedy reconnecting with director Stefano Bertelli (Alter Bridge’s “Native Son”/Myles Kennedy’s “In Stride” video) for another animated masterpiece. The video shows Kennedy reflecting on life at an open grave as he sings the thought-provoking lyrics “Cause in times like these, we must live and learn.”
It was recently announced that Kennedy will head out on The Ides Of March Tour. The 15-date tour will kick off on Sept. 7, 2021 in St. Petersburg, FL and make stops in Atlanta, GA; Des Moines, IA; Nashville, TN; and New York, NY among others before it wraps up in Baltimore, MD on Oct. 2, 2021. They will also be part of the Foothills Festival in Jasper, AL on Sept. 11, 2021 and the Adelphia Music Hall Summer Concert Series in Marietta, OH on Oct. 1, 2021 These shows will include the full trio that recorded the sophomore album The Ides Of March – drummer Zia Uddin and bassist/manager Tim Tournier – on the road as well. All shows are on sale now and more information on tickets/VIP packages for all dates can be found HERE.
Kennedy released The Ides Of March via Napalm Records in May. The album received critical acclaim and created another career benchmark for the musician. The Ides Of March achieved numerous chart recognitions, including #1 spots in three different countries – including #1 Billboard Top Current Hard Music (United States), #1 Official Rock & Metal Albums (UK), #1 Official Independent Album Chart (UK) and #1 Hard Music Albums (Canada). The Ides Of March saw four different tracks released to the public, including the debut single “In Stride,” album-opener “Get Along,” the title track and longest song on the album “The Ides Of March” and the pensive ballad “Love Rain Down.” The Ides Of March was produced by longtime collaborator Michael “Elvis” Baskette and can be ordered HERE.
