Slash has officially unveiled full details of his upcoming studio album "World on Fire," sharing a September 15 release date, as well as a full track listing and cover artwork.
The axeman's third solo effort marks the follow-up to 2012's "Apocalyptic Love" and features production work of Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Alter Bridge, Falling in Reverse, Incubus).
Asked during a recent Q&A about the extent of sonic experimentation featured on the record, Slash replied, "The whole record sounds new compared to the last album. Yes we did do a lot of tonal and EQ and guitars. I can't say we were looking to break ground with new technology, because we did this to tape. But from a tonal and equalization point of view, we definitely broke a lot of new ground."
As reported, the album recording process was detailed during "Real to Reel" series and featured an abundance of killer riffs, setting the bar fairly high for this one. Check out the trippy cover and full track listing below.
