In a new interview with Cleavelnd.com, Guns N Roses guitarist Slash says he hopes to release new material next year from both Guns N Roses and with his solo band Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. Slash’s last album with his solo band was 2018’s Living The Dream via Snakepit Records, in partnership with Roadrunner Records. GNR has not released a new album since 2008’s Chinese Democracy, but the core original band of Slash, W. Axl Rose, and Duff McKagan has not released an album since 1993’s covers album The Spaghetti Incident. The band also released a stand-alone single “The Shadow of Your Love” from 2018’s massive Appetite for Destruction boxed set.
On Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators – Slash said: “We did a week of initial pre-production, and there’s 20 songs and we’re gonna start back up next year. I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff. And prior to that, Duff [McKagan] and I did some jamming and we also worked on the GUNS [N’ ROSES] record, and I’ve had a couple of ancillary recordings and jams on top of that, so there’s been a lot of stuff going on. I’m really not good at slowing down and just sitting around.”
Asked when he thinks we’ll hear some of this music, Slash said: “I would like to think that we’d have some new stuff out next year — from both camps, I guess. It’s hard to say, but I would like to think we’ll have stuff out next year, yeah.”
