Slash's claim to fame is being the guitarist of Guns N' Roses, but he's also had a successful career as a solo artist. Last week, Slash announced a new blues-centric solo album called Orgy of the Damned, which is set to release on May 17. Like the other albums in his discography, this one will feature notable guest singers and musicians. And this time around, Slash is bringing the new music across the United States in a traveling blues festival billed as S.E.R.P.E.N.T. (which stands for “Solidarity, Engagement, Restore, Peace, Equality N’ Tolerance.”)

The summer trek sees the guitarist sharing the bill with blues icons like Warren Haynes Band, Keb’ ‘Mo, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Robert Randolph, Samantha Fish, Eric Gales, ZZ Ward, Jackie Venson, and Larkin Poe. Each date will see a rotating lineup anchored by Slash performing songs off the new album with his blues band that comprises bassist Johnny Griparic, keyboardist Teddy ‘ZigZag’ Andreadis, drummer Michael Jerome, and singer/guitarist Tash Neal.

“The S.E.R.P.E.N.T. tour is a celebration of blues and rock ‘n’ roll music, and a celebration of unity and togetherness in these uncertain and divisive times,” Slash said in a statement. “S.E.R.P.E.N.T is a vehicle to help support and uplift people and communities suffering from the injustices of racism and equal rights violations, as well as to support children adversely affected by war and poverty across the world. So, we are contributing a portion of every ticket and VIP package sold from the tour to those ends. S.E.R.P.E.N.T. will also provide an environment where folks can get together for a day of great music and hang out and have a good time.”
