Slash Completes Mixing New Album
Slash and his backing band, Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, have finished mxing the third album to be released under the Slash solo banner.

AsĀ Blabbermouth notes, a total of 17 songs, including one instrumental, were laid down for the follow-up to 2012's "Apocalyptic Love," which will be mastered next weekend. Slash tweeted earlier tonight: "Artwork is set. Will announce the title soon. Can't wait to unleash it!"

Slash recently chatted with the UK's Kerrang! magazine about his third solo album. He remarked, "All I can tell you is that it's a really f--king great record. I'm very proud of it, but I don't want to get into, 'Oh, dude, it's epic,' or 'It's the heaviest thing ever.' It's very rock and roll, and, as always, it's very diverse in feel, and I'm just super, super proud of everything that we collectively put into making the thing. It's just going to be a b-tchin' record."

Slash added that he and his band have grown a lot together during the making of the new CD, saying, "The band has become so synergetic. I showed the music to the guys, and what they wrote flowed immediately. I was really amazed at how, from the second we started pre-production up 'till now, the record just flowed. It's rare that it happens like that."

The new album is tentatively due out in September. Slash released his first self-titled solo effort in 2010.

The legendary guitarist employed a different vocalist on each track of his first album, before settling on Alter Bridge member Kennedy for both touring and eventually recording.

Slash and Aerosmith will team up for a US tour this summer.
