This spring, The Dandy Warhols are dialling up the nostalgia with a new anthem, ‘I’d Like To Help You With Your Problem,’ featuring Guns N’ Roses legend Slash. Set to be part of their much-anticipated album Rockmaker, this track promises to take listeners on a wild ride back to the Vietnam-era acid rock sound. The Portland-based quartet’s upcoming release is due March 15, 2024.

When The Dandy Warhols first listened to the track enhanced by Slash’s iconic wah-wah guitar, they were left speechless. “The first time we heard it back in our studio, we just stared at each other with our mouths open,” shares frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor. Slash’s contribution to the song not only elevates it but brings a distinctively familiar sound that’s as recognisable as “a familiar human voice.”

Slash himself was drawn to the song’s vintage vibe. “The song has a real Vietnam-era acid rock sound,” he notes, emphasising the unique blend of styles that makes this collaboration stand out. The Dandy Warhols knew they needed that specific kind of guitar mastery — one that only Slash could deliver.

‘I’d Like To Help You With Your Problem’ follows the release of ‘Danzig With Myself,’ which featured Frank Black’s surf guitar, and ‘Summer of Hate,’ another single from the upcoming album. Rockmaker promises to explore the darker, deeper chords of post-punk and metal while staying true to the band’s alt-rock roots.

Known for their eclectic mix of shoegaze, powerpop, and heavy rock, The Dandy Warhols have etched their name into the alt-rock genre with hits like ‘Bohemian Like You’ and ‘We Used to Be Friends’. The band consists of Courtney Taylor-Taylor, Peter Holmström, Zia McCabe, and Brent DeBoer.
