Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators will return this fall with a long-awaited new album.
Fans have been patiently awaiting the news of a follow up to their 2014 album, World On Fire. Today Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have confirmed they have entered the studio with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette to begin work on the yet to be titled album.
With Slash back on the road with Guns N’ Roses and Myles Kennedy having been touring with Alter Bridge, and currently on his solo tour to support his recent release, Year of the Tiger, fans were asking when the band will be back together. Along with the new album, the band are expected to announce a full North American tour in the fall too.

“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 8 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 definitely think shows on this next record.” Slash adds, “Guns N’ Roses will be headlining European festivals this summer, it’s going to be a 110% performance and a huge blast. I love doing European fests and this is the first time we’ve done any proper festivals over there on the Not In This Lifetime Tour. It’s indescribable to explain these shows. I’m looking over and seeing Axl, Duff and Dizzy whom I’ve known forever, but it also feels like an entirely new experience with Richard, Frank and Melissa. It’s like being in a new band, except there’s a chemistry that is established from days of old, so it’s a natural thing that’s always been there.”
As soon as tour dates are announced, we will let you know. For now, be rest assured that new material is just around the corner.
