Battleground

Album: World On Fire (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • World On Fire is the second studio album featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. The record was produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, who also helmed Alter Bridge's Blackbird, AB III and Fortress long players. Myles Kennedy told Blabbermouth why he was pleased to hook up with producer again: "His ability to get the best out of a rock band is pretty special," he said. "He always seems to be aware of what the fans want to hear from an artist."

    "He did a great job documenting Slash's tone and sound," Kennedy continued. "I remember the first time I heard the solo for 'Battleground' — I was blown away. Elvis captured the sonic hallmarks that made Slash's playing resonate with me 25 years ago. Elvis is hands-on with every element of the recording process. From the arrangements to the final mix, he is relentless at making sure that the record is everything it should be and more."
