‘Myles Kennedy’ Says New ‘Slash’ Album Will Be ‘Dynamic’


SlashFrance.net and AlterBridge-France.fr conducted an interview with Myles Kennedy [Alter Bridge, Slash] before Alter Bridge‘s November 4 concert at Le Zénith in Paris, France. The 19-minute clip, which includes performance footage, can be seen below.

When asked if the forthcoming second solo album from legendary guitarist Slash [Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver]— which will feature lead vocals and songwriting contributions from Myles — will be heavier than last year’s self-titled effort, Kennedy said, “A lot of it depends on which songs make the cut. There’s 17 tracks [in the works] right now, so depending on which end up being the final ones. But there are definitely songs with more of an aggressive side — [Slash‘s] signature dark riffs that he’s so great at, there’s tracks with that. Then there’s also tracks that touch on other vibes, stylistically. So it’s definitely a dynamic [album].”

Slash recently completed the first recording session for his upcoming solo album at Barefoot Recording in Hollywood, California with producer Eric Valentine . Joining Slash in the studio were the members of his touring band: Kennedy, rhythm guitarist Bobby Schneck, bassist Todd Kerns, and drummer Brent Fitz.

Regarding the musical direction of his new material and how it compares to last year’s self-titled effort, Slash previously said, “This one’s definitely a very focused… Very hard. Some of it’s very heavy. It’s got sort of a more unified sound to it, especially with one vocal all throughout.”

Alter Bridge has just released a special edition of its latest album, AB III. The special edition includes three additional songs — “Zero”,“Home” and “Never Born To Follow” — making a total of 17 tracks on the album, as well as an extraordinary hour-long DVD documentary called “One By One”.
