Slash and the guys are hard at work on the next Slash album. With vocals once again being done by Myles Kennedy we can expect another kickass album. Bassist Tod Kerns updated his blog recently with news on what we can expect on the new album:
“So here we are. Like prize fighters training and training for the fight of our lives. Now the big fight is upon us. We are lean. We are mean and we are, most assuredly, fighting machines,” says the musician.
“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.
“The material on this album is more serious and more fun at the same time which is a tough balance indeed. 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.”
Agreed, Apocalyptic Love was a great album and the next one has big shoes to fill. But, with words like “sleazier” and “dangerous” we’re hoping for a heavier album. We simply can’t get enough of Myles Kennedy, and we look forward to hearing him rip the skies open with his vocals!
With the guys hitting the studio early February, chances are we can still expect the album to be released this year!
