Slash Album Update: 'Songs Are Sleazier, Tougher, More Dangerous'
Slash's bassist Todd Kerns posted an update on the iconic axeman's upcoming record, announcing a "sleazier, tougher and more dangerous" vibe.

The Michael "Elvis" Baskette-produced effort will mark Slash's third solo release and a follow-up to 2012's "Apocalyptic Love." Judging by the bassist's blog post, the guys are more than ready; as a matter of fact, they are "lean, mean and most assuredly, fighting machines."

"I have to admit that conceptually I felt that 'Apocalyptic Love' would be a tough act to follow but I can say with all the confidence in the world that we are more than armed and ready. Not only do I feel that the material surpasses 'Apocalyptic Love' I think we are ten times the band we were when that album was recorded," Kerns confidently noted.

"The material on this album is more serious and more fun at the same time which is a tough balance indeed," the bassist continued. "The songs are sleazier, tougher and more dangerous. Exactly where I feel most comfortable. We are all very excited to unleash the monster upon you as soon as we can."

Focusing on future plans, Todd added, "We enter the studio early February and will work through the next few months. No plans as to when anything will be finished. It'll be done when it's done. I know we all hope to be back out on the road sooner than later but we'll see."

Earlier last month, Slash confirmed 16 tracks good to go. The album is currently only set for a tentative 2014 release, more info should drop soon.
