Slash has told BelfastLive in a new interview that work on a new Guns n’ Roses album could commence at the end of this year.
Asked if the band has started writing together yet, the guitarist, who has been busy playing shows with his solo band, Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, said: “I wouldn’t say we’ve really sat down and had those sessions yet.”
He continued: “The Conspirators are finishing up in mid-August and then Guns is going out in late September/October, so in the fall. But at the same time, we’re focused on working towards this new record that everybody’s been asking about. So start focusing on that in earnest. And that’s it. I’m not thinking about anything else while that is going on. That’s really the main focus. By the time the Conspirators tour is done, I will have written enough material for the next Conspirators record that whenever that break comes up with Guns n’ Roses we can go on to do that. We’ll just juggle all this stuff, schedules permitting.”
Asked what the new Guns n’ Roses album will be like, he said: “I have no fucking idea. I really couldn’t tell you. It’s like anything else — you don’t know what it is until it’s done.”
