Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy & 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 (ALTER BRIDGE, IGGY POP, INCUBUS). Expect the group to announce a full North American tour in the fall.
“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 think shows on this next record.”
Rumors of a new Conspirators album disc were started last December when Slash‘s girlfriend Meegan Hodges told a fan on Instagram that the guitarist was in the studio with singer Myles Kennedy recording the next CONSPIRATORS album. But Kennedy claimed in a radio interview a short time later that there were no concrete plans for him to reunite with Slash and work on new music. The vocalist, who also fronts ALTER BRIDGE, went on to say that he would spend most of 2018 touring in support of his solo album, “Year Of The Tiger“, with 2019 likely to be dominated by his commitments to ALTER BRIDGE.
GUNS N’ ROSES has been off the road since November when it completed the North American stadium and arena run leg of the “Not In This Lifetime“ reunion tour with three shows in Los Angeles.
