Slash works on new solo album with Alter Bridge’s Myles Kennedy

Former Guns N' Roses guitarist reunites with rock frontman for new songs

Slash has begun work on his next solo album, the follow-up to 2010’s self-titled release.

In an interview with Planet Rock Radio, former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash revealed that he has joined forces with Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy.

Myles and I have been writing all throughout the tour so we’ve got a lot of material,” says Slash, “and at this point we’re probably gonna start a little bit of pre-production in June and then do the tour in July. In September we’re going to [do more] pre-production and the album is slated to come out in March or April [next year].”

The two had previously collaborated on Slash‘s last solo album, with Kennedy featuring on tracks ‘Back from Cali’ and ‘Starlight’. Slash will play a series of headline UK shows in July, as well as a slot at London’s High Voltage Festival. Meanwhile, Alter Bridge will take on Download Festival on June 10.
