Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators will return this fall with their third studio album.
The album does not have a name yet, but the group has gone into the studio with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, known for his work with Alter Bridge, Iggy Pop and Incubus.
The group consists of: Slash on guitar, Myles Kennedy on vocals, Brent Fitz on drums, Todd Kerns on bass and vocals and Frank Sidoris on guitar and vocals.
There will likely be a North American tour for the fall.
This same team worked on the group’s last album World On Fire (2014).
Slash: ‘We’ve Hit a Great Creative Stride’
“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.” Slash said in a release. “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.
“Guns N’ Roses will be headlining European festivals this summer, it’s going to be a 110 percent performance and a huge blast,” Slash said. “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.”
