Slash Completes Mixing New Album

Slash and his backing band, MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS, have finished mxing the third album to be released under the Slash solo banner. A total of 17 songs, including one instrumental, were laid down for the follow-up to 2012's "Apocalyptic Love", which will be mastered next weekend. Slash tweeted earlier tonight: "Artwork is set. Will announce the title soon. Can't wait to unleash it!"

Slash recently with the U.K.'s Kerrang! magazine about his third solo album. He remarked, "All I can tell you is that it's a really fucking great record. I'm very proud of it, but I don't want to get into, 'Oh, dude, it's epic,' or 'It's the heaviest thing ever.' It's very rock and roll, and, as always, it's very diverse in feel, and I'm just super, super proud of everything that we collectively put into making the thing. It's just going to be a bitchin' record."

In regard to how they recorded the album, Slash says, “It’s definitely a progression. We did this record to tape, and I’ve been recording to tape forever. I’ve only done Velvet Revolver records to Pro Tools and I can’t stand that sort of digital approach to recording drums and guitars and stuff. My first solo record was to tape, and with ‘Apocalyptic Love’, we decided to go in and just do it live. That was one of those record that, when you listen to it, everything sounds a certain way because we recorded it in the moment.”

Slash continues: “I wanted to do a more produced album, where we go in and play everything live, and then we overdub the guitars. I overdubbed all of them using all the live tracks. I just wanted to get more of a dense sound and whatnot, and be able to put some overdubs on it to make things more interesting or harmonize or whatever it was. So this is more of a produced record, and that’s the main progression, in my mind.”

Slash added that he and his band have grown a lot together during the making of the new CD, saying, "The band has become so synergetic. I showed the music to the guys, and what they wrote flowed immediately. I was really amazed at how, from the second we started pre-production up 'till now, the record just flowed. It's rare that it happens like that."

The new album is tentatively due out in September. Slash released his first self-titled solo effort in 2010.

Meanwhile, fans who attend Slash’s ‘Let Rock Rule Tour‘ with Aerosmith that kicks off July 10 will be able to hear some of the new music, according to this tweet from Slash:
