Slash 'Starting Work' On Next Album

During a new interview with RollingStone.com, legendary guitarist Slash (Velvet Revolver, Guns N' Roses) revealed that he is already looking ahead to recording his next album, to feature the same band with which he made the current "Apocalyptic Love" CD, Blabbermouth.net reports. "We've got the tour that's gonna go into next year, we're starting work on the next record," Slash said. Slash and his band Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators - Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass) and Frank Sidoris (guitar) - announced a fall headlining tour starting September 4 in San Diego, California and wrapping October 3 in Los Angeles, California. Slash scored his first-ever No. 1 hit at rock radio as a solo artist with "You're A Lie", the first single from his second solo effort, "Apocalyptic Love". The record came out on May 22 and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard album chart a week later, selling 38,000 copies in its first week of release. Unlike Slash's solo debut, which featured different vocalists on each track and a number of guest musicians, Slash has recorded all of the new CD with his touring band, Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. Slash co-wrote all the material with Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy and told The Pulse Of Radio that they never struggled to find a groove together. "There was never any kind of like, 'OK, we need to sit down and focus on writing,'" he said. "Just whenever ideas happened, I would just lay them down, and if I thought it was good enough to send to him, then I'd send it to him. And he miraculously would come up with melodies for everything I came up with, and it just happened like that." Slash and his band recently completed a month-long tour of Europe.

    I'd love to hear Velvet Revolver get on to something instead (and yes I am aware that they currently have no singer picked as of yet, but that would be awesome) especially if rumors were true of Scott possibly joining back in. But all in all not bad look forward to it still

    So glad it's with the same band he had on "Apocalyptic Love", that album rocked. Looking forward to this.

    I agree, but Slash himself said that he was not the leader of the Snakepit, it was a band where everybody had his input.

    While I'd support a new Slash album featuring Myles Kennedy, I do have to ask when he's going to have time for Alter Bridge if they start a new album right after the tour. Loved Apocalyptic Love though. Saw them in concert on Friday. Blew my mind

    so in roughly four years he will have been working on 3 albums? when you compare that to axl rose, it's just phenomenal. this is why slash is still relevant.

    Slash, please get back with Weiland for one last tour and album and tell everybody that "this is it". Not a sudden announcement in Scotland that its over. I was never able to see you guys and it would mean the world to me. Thank you!

    I wish he would take a little more time with his music and push himself instead of churning out the same standard hard rock for the past 20 years...

    The Snakepit albums are probably two of my favourite records. Love 'em! In his book Slash said that it was meant to be a new band with 'Snakepit' as the name, but the record label told him to add 'Slash's' to the title to assure it'd sell more... or something like that anyway
