Slash will reportedly record guitar parts for some brand new Guns N' Roses material this weekend at singer Axl Rose's studio in Malibu, California. The news of the recording session was broken in a social media post by Kruse Kontrol Amplification, which performs amplifier modifications for customers from the entire U.S. and Canada.
In the since-deleted Instagram post, someone representing Kruse Kontrol wrote, “Slash's 1987 Silver Jubilee in the house! Dropped off by GnR producer Caram Costanzo himself the amp needs to be serviced and tuned up to sound stellar for this Saturday's recording of new material at Axl Rose's studio in Malibu.”
Costanzo was a co-producer on Guns N' Roses' last studio album, 2008's Chinese Democracy, which featured only Axl from the band's classic lineup. Costanzo also worked on “Rock The Rock,” the first new song from Axl in 10 years, which was featured in the TV show New Looney Tunes.
Slash, who will return to the road next week with his solo band Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, recently told BelfastLive that work on a new Guns album could commence at the end of this year. Asked what the new Guns album will be like, he said, “I have no f**king idea. I really couldn't tell you. It's like anything else — you don't know what it is until it's done.”
Guns N' Roses will head out on a short tour this fall and is already confirmed as one of the headliners at Kentucky's Louder Than Life festival, scheduled for late September. This will mark the band's first live show since ending its reunion tour in December 2018.
