Former GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash has told Inland Valley Daily Bulletin that the writingfor his next record — the third album with MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS — is 90 percent completed. The plan is for the band to enter the studio in the spring to begin recording the disc for a late 2016 release.

“The stuff for the next record is really great,” Slash said of the material. “One of the cool things about this band is that instead of peaking early and burning out is we’ve started at one place and escalated in terms of our creative inspiration.”
