Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy says he and Slash plan to start recording Slash’s upcoming album next year

Alter Bridge released their fourth studio album, “Fortress,” this week, and while the guys are currently on tour overseas in support of the set, they’re already thinking ahead to what’s next after this album cycle wraps up.

Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy — who sings lead vocals in Slash’s solo project, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators — says he has already started writing for Slash’s upcoming solo album. Moreover, he says the group is gunning to start recording the album next year. “Slash is sending me his riffs and ideas, so I’ve been [sending parts to him] via the old phone voice memo,” Kennedy told Billboard.  “We’ll probably get together here later with the other guys, start chipping away at some things, and the goal is to record it next year.”

Guitarist Mark Tremonti is planning to start work on the sophomore studio album with his side project, Tremonti. “I’ll be getting with the guys and trying to find a window maybe in December or January just to write some material,” he said. “The next time we tour [as my solo band] Tremonti will probably be after we get some new material done, so it will probably be at least six months till we play some shows.”

As for Alter Bridge’s new release, Tremonti says “Fortress” is a tad more forceful than previous releases. “When we first started putting the album together me and Myles kind of kept in mind that we had to play each song night after night and wanted to keep it a high-energy, fun record to perform live,” he said. “That kind of steered us to writing those songs a little more aggressively.”
