Slash has confirmed that he will be releasing a new album with Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators this fall. The group are currently recording the effort with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette. A fall North American tour is being planned as well.
“I’m excited about the new stuff we put together for this next record; it’s got some cool songs and it’s got a great live feel. I’ve been working with Myles, Brent and Todd for about eight years now. It’s been an amazing ride so far; as a band we continue to get better which is great. With the addition of Frank since the ‘World On Fire’ tour, I feel we have hit a great, creative stride which I definitely think shows on this next record.”
He also added:
“Guns N’ Roses will be headlining European festivals this summer, it’s going to be a 110 percent performance and a huge blast. I love doing European fests and this is the first time we’ve done any proper festivals over there on the ‘Not In This Lifetime’ tour. It’s indescribable to explain these shows. I’m looking over and seeing Axl, Duff and Dizzy whom I’ve known forever, but it also feels like an entirely new experience with Richard, Frank and Melissa. It’s like being in a new band, except there’s a chemistry that is established from days of old, so it’s a natural thing that’s always been there.”
During their show in Las Vegas, NV last night (December 31), Slash, along with his band Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators, performed Motörhead’s “Ace Of Spades” to pay tribute to the late great Lemmy Kilmister. Check out some fan-filmed footage of that below:
