Bassist Todd Kerns has revealed the new solo album by former Guns N’ Roses Slash is completely written.
Kerns, who joined Slash’s solo band, dubbed ‘Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators’ following the release of the former Guns N’ Roses guitarist’s 2010 self-titled solo debut, said the band is totally prepared for when they hit the studio next month in a recent update on his official blog: “So here we are. Like prize fighters training and training for the fight of our lives. Now the big fight is upon us. We are lean. We are mean and we are, most assuredly, fighting machines.”
Kerns said writing the follow-up to Slash’s acclaimed 2012 album, ‘Apocalyptic Love’ turned out to be surprisingly easy: “I have to admit that conceptually I felt that ‘Apocalyptic Love’ would be a tough act to follow but I can say with all the confidence in the world that we are more than armed and ready. Not only do I feel that the material surpasses ‘Apocalyptic Love’ I think we are ten times the band we were when that album was recorded.”
He continued:“The material on this album is more serious and more fun at the same time which is a tough balance indeed. The songs are sleazier, tougher and more dangerous. Exactly where I feel most comfortable. We are all very excited to unleash the monster upon you as soon as we can.”
