SLASH Finishes Recording New Album; Shoots 'Gotten Video To Support LA Youth Network
February 6, 2012, 5 years ago
SLASH (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) took to Twitter last night to reflect on his "busy fn' weekend", which included finishing the recordings for his next solo album, and shooting a video for his track 'Gotten', featuring MAROON 5 frontman Adam Levine and lifted from Slash' 2010 self-titled solo album.
On Saturday Slash updated: "Shooting a video this weekend for 'Gotten'. We remixed it in Astound Sound. Will be released soon in support of LA Youth Network."
Slash is currently working on his next solo album with vocalist Myles Kennedy of ALTER BRIDGE. Rounding out the group is bassist Todd Kerns (SIN CITY SINNERS), drummer Brent Fitz (ex-ALICE COOPER) and guitarist Bobby Schneck. I
The as yet untitled effort is expected to be released in May. Thus far, three song titles have been leaked: ‘Halo’, ‘Standing In The Sun’ and ‘Bad Rain’.
After an overwhelming appearance at CMW in 2010 and a platinum-selling self-titled album in Canada immediately thereafter, Slash will be returning to this year's Slacker Canadian Music Week to participate in a celebrity interview on Friday, March 23rd at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel before a sold-out performance later that evening at The Phoenix Concert Theatre.
His career originated as guitarist for the iconic rock band GUNS N' ROSES and has evolved on his own with SLASH'S SNAKEPIT, VELVET REVOLVER and now his solo efforts. His tours have taken him around the globe more times than most and have seen him perform hundreds of shows in front of thousands of fans - each one with its own tale to tell.
In a command interview with media personalities John Roberts (Fox News Senior National Correspondent) and Kyra Phillips (CNN Newsroom anchor), attendees will have an intimate opportunity to hear Slash address the virtues of touring, the impact of live performance and fan engagement, recount some of his most memorable moments from the road, as well as reveal the details of his sophomore solo album set to release in May.
