Upcoming Slash Album Described as ‘Sleazier, Tougher and More Dangerous’

Mary Ouellette,

Recently, Slash revealed that a lot of progress was being made on his next album with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. Now bassist  is revealing more details about the forthcoming effort.

In a post on his blog, Kerns writes about the new material: “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.”

That album is definitely a tough act to follow, as ‘Apocalyptic Love’ debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 album chart when it was released in May of 2012. It also spawned three hit singles: ‘You’re a Lie’ (which topped the singles chart), ‘Standing in the Sun’ and ‘Anastasia.’

In the blog post, Kerns also describes the musical direction of the new stuff: “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.”

How about a timetable for the album? “We enter the studio early February and will work through the next few months,” Kerns reveals. “No plans as to when anything will be finished. It’ll be done when it’s done. I know we all hope to be back out on the road sooner than later but we’ll see.”

The new album is being produced by Michael ‘Elvis’ Baskette, who has worked with artists including Alter Bridge, Trivium and Chevelle.
