Slash planning to record new album in 2016

Slash has revealed plans to record a new album in 2016.

“We're working on new material for the next record," Slash tells Billboard. "When this tour's over we'll start going in and doing some pre-production and probably go into the studio some time in mid to late spring and record."

Currently touring in support of “World On Fire”, the guitarist is already pleased with the vibe of the new music.

"They sound very rhythmic and that's definitely something that, for me personally, I'm going for," he says. "We'll see what that turns into. It changes. It sort of evolves; you start out with one idea and that sort of morphs into another idea. At this point it sounds like it's going to be really awesome, so I'm excited about it."

Last week, Slash released “Live At The Roxy 25.9.14.”

The package captures the guitarist and his band in concert at the famed Los Angeles venue as part of the Guitar Center’s 50th anniversary celebrations and the launch of “World On Fire.”

The Roxy event was one of three shows Slash played in Hollywood’s most legendary clubs to launch the record; he also rocked The Troubadour and The Whisky in the same week.

Slash is currently playing a mixture of headline and festival show across Europe.
