Slash set to work with Myles Kennedy on next album

on December 04, 2010, 1:30pm

Between a tour announcement with Ozzy Osbourne and Velvet Revolver looking for a new singer, Slash is going to be one busy bee in the coming months. Yet amidst all of the madness, the legendary guitarist still found time to complete a new album, on which he worked with one singer and one singer only. According to antiMUSIC, Slash plans to use Alter Bridge frontman/gutarist Myles Kennedy on his next solo album, but – unlike the list of star vocalists on the current self-titled project – Kennedy will handle all the vocals. Kennedy contributed vocals to a few tracks on the self-titled Slash album released earlier this year and has been out on the road with Slash for the past few months, so it isn’t surprising that the partnership is getting another go ’round. Not to leave his bandmates in the wake, Kennedy’s time will be spent rotating between that gig and his Alter Bridge touring schedule. “We have it set up so that he does Alter Bridge until January and then we start up January through April or May… Alter Bridge from May to July, and then we do July to August,” said Slash in recent statements to the press.

In addition to those previously mentioned dates with Ozzy, Slash and Kennedy will be hitting up Soundwave Festival in 2011, along with select dates in Asia and Puerto Rico. Head on over to Slash’s official website to spy all 2011 tour dates and keep busy until the new album drops. Keep checking back with CoS for more information as it comes.
