Slash confirms that Guns N’ Roses will start working on a new album this fall

It’s official: Slash, Axl Rose and Duff McKagan plan to get working on a new Guns N’ Roses album this fall. In a new interview with Futuro 88.9 FM in Chile, Slash stated that after his current tour with his band Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, the Guns N’ Roses crew will get back together for a short October tour and new music.

“After (we tour) South America, we go straight to Europe and do the festivals over there,” he said in the chat. “And then from Europe, we go back to the States and Canada and do our first Canadian tour, plus some U.S. dates. And that goes until August. And then after that, I’m gonna hook up with Guns N’ Roses.”

Slash elaborated on his GN’R plans, which include playing some yet-to-be announced live shows and working on a new record.

“There’s been so much talk about this (new) Guns N’ Roses record, which we haven’t actually done anything with,” he said, adding, “So we’re gonna sort of focus on that. And then The Conspirators will be (regrouping) some time coming up, depending on what Guns N’ Roses is doing. But I’ve already started putting together material for the new Conspirators record.”

Slash’s new comments are in line with previous statements about new Guns N’ Roses music, including an interview Slash did with Japan’s TVK Rock City back in February, stating, “Axl, Duff, myself and Richard have all talked about… there’s material and stuff going on already for a new record. It’s just, with Guns N’ Roses, you don’t go, ‘Oh, there’s a plan, and it’s gonna be like this,’ because that’s not how it works.”

Come September, Guns N’ Roses will headline the 2019 Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, Kentucky, alongside Staind, Disturbed and more. For more information on the festival, go here.
