Jared James Nichols has released a video of his new track Last Chance exclusively with Classic Rock.

The song will feature on the guitarist’s upcoming album Black Magic which is out in September.

Speaking about the track, Nichols says: “Last Chance is easily the hardest-hitting song I’ve ever written. I completely let it all hang out and went wild!

“Even the guitar solo is ‘off the wall’, blazing fast, and absolutely crazy. I needed to set the bar high for the new record and come out with a bang!”

Last Chance, which is now available to purchase as a digital single via Amazon, was produced by Nichols and Tony Perry – son of Aerosmith guitarist Joe, and was mixed by Jay Ruston.

Nichols will head out on tour later this week, kicking off with a set at Hellfest on Saturday, June 17. Find a full list of Nichols’ other 2017 live dates below.

Further album details will be revealed in due course.
