The second episode of Slash's "Real to Reel" video series has recently surfaced, giving another update on the new album sessions.
This time around, the focus was on bassist Todd Kerns, sharing an insight on the record's low end.
"On Planet Slash as I call it, we like to do things a lot more organically. For me, and for Slash as well, it's all about - if you like what's coming out of your amp, there's no need to fix it," the bassist explained as a few tasty bass lick were grooving in the background."
"These guys are playing amazingly," Slash chipped in. "I've never seen [drummer] Brent [Fitz] play the way that he's played on this record and Todd is in here doing bass now and he's just blowing my mind. And it's really raising the bar for me as well. My guitar playing has to be able to stand up to that and sit on top of it."
So far, Slash confirmed 16 new songs ready, along with a heavier overall groove. No release date has been set as of yet, with Kerns noting that the album will be "ready when it's ready." The rest of the video features fresh riffs galore, make sure to give it a look or two below.
