Slash: New album update

Slash continues work on his next solo album, due out next spring.

The guitarist and his touring band - Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge), rhythm guitarist Bobby Schneck, bassist Todd Kerns (Sin City Sinners, formerly of Age Of Electric), and drummer Brent Fitz (formerly of Theory Of A Deadman) – have been holed up at Barefoot Studios in LA with producer Eric Valentine getting ideas together and songs down on tape.

“Ok, 13 songs ready to record,” writes Slash in his latest update to fans. “3 already done. 2 more to finish writing before Dec. 12 on the record, 6 bonus trx, Woohoo!”

Last month, Slash announced that the guys will be leaving the rehearsal space to try out some of the new material in front of fans.

“At pre pros end we're doing 2 live private shows in LA to stretch our legs w/the new stuff b4 we record. Details tba. RnFn'R!”

The private shows are a good way for Slash to test what stuff works in a live setting for both the band and its fans, as they’ll be able to instantly gauge fan reaction.

Last week, Slash released a live recording - “Slash: Made In Stoke – 24/7/11” – on DVD and Blu-ray.
