When he recently said that "there's no such thing as time off," Slash seemed to be quite serious, as the iconic axeman recently announced the release of new solo record.

During a chat with the Salt Lake Tribune, Slash confirmed that the "Apocalyptic Love" follow-up is already in the works and should drop earlier next year.

"We're actually working up the next [album] as we speak," the axeman stated. "Myles has a new album coming out and then a tour, so it'll be after that. But I'm working on material, I'll send it to him, and he'll come in and record. It'll be out early next year."

The guitarist also revealed that he won't be seeking any guest singers for the new album, keeping things plain and simple.

"No, the re's no one I'm seeking out," he said. "I don't do that. The first solo record was really the only time anything like that was pre-planned, where I'm calling people up and asking, 'Will you sing on my record?'"

Slash's current projects also include co-production of "Nothing to Fear" horror movie. According to the latest reports, the film's soundtrack is set to drop on October 4.

"Apocalyptic Love" was released in May 2012 as Slash's sophomore solo effort, debuting at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart with 38,000 units shipped within the first week.

    I love it, as a fan of Slash, Myles and Mark Tremonti, there's like a constant stream of music from some combination of them. On another, note, it's great to see Slash likes to keep busy.
    I agree, but I want Alter Bridge to be able to tour and have some time. I feel like they always get the short end of the stick with Creed, Tremonti and Slash. More Alter Bridge!
    The man doesn't stop! Fan or not, you have to give him credit for all the hard work and effort he puts in to what he does.
    Would you say the same about Megadeth? Nearly everybody keeps giving 'quantity over quality' related comments about them.
    Even if you don't like Slash's music, you must admit that they are quality works
    HOLYSHIT. Fucking hyped right now. Fortress out in October and another slash album in 2014?! DAYUM
    I like Slash, but in my opinion Myles Kennedy's voice suits Alter Bridge more. I think he should just let Todd Kerns sing for this CD.
    Can't wait for the new album. I hope I get to see them on tour this time around! In my opinion their one of the best active bands today.
    I hope his tone sounds better on this record!! apocalyptic love was amazing but some of the lead tones on the album (particularly the bridge pickup... it just lacked the rich thickness i'm used to hearing from slash) just couldn't hold a candle to those on the first solo record in my opinion.
