Slash will support his new blues covers album Orgy of the Damned with this summer's inaugural S.E.R.P.E.N.T. festival, bringing a slew of rock and blues artists along for the ride.

The traveling roadshow's name is an acronym that stands for "Solidarity, Engagement, Restore, Equality N' Tolerance." The trek begins on July 5 in Bonner, Montana, and concludes on Aug. 17 in Grand Prairie, Texas. There will be several different lineups throughout the six-week run, with support from Warren Haynes, Samantha Fish, Eric Gales, ZZ Ward, Larkin Poe, Jackie Venson and more.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday. You can see the full itinerary below.

Speaking to UCR about the inspiration behind the S.E.R.P.E.N.T. festival, Slash said: "I thought it would be a great time, because of all of the divisions and whatnot [that are] happening in this country on a social level, to try and bring some solidarity and acceptance and support different groups. I want to really sort of bring people together and make this a celebration of all different kinds of people and all kinds of different ways of thinking. I just thought that would be a good vehicle for that."

The guitarist will release Orgy of the Damned on May 17. The first single, a cover of Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor" featuring Brian Johnson on vocals and Steven Tyler on harmonica, is out now.
