Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators will return this fall with its as-yet-untitled third studio album. The group — Slash (guitar), Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass, vocals) and Frank Sidoris (guitar, vocals) — has entered the studio with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette. Expect the group to announce a full North American tour for the fall. Slash will continue playing with Guns N’ Roses.
“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,” explains Slash. “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.”
Slash adds: “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.”
