Joining Slash in the studio are the members of his touring band: vocalist Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge), rhythm guitarist Bobby Schneck, bassist Todd Kerns (ex-Age of Electric) and drummer Brent Fitz (formerly of Theory of a Deadman).
Slash has recently played three of the newly recorded songs – "Halo," "Standing in the Sun" and "Bad Rain" – for VH1 Classic's That Metal Show. One of the show's co-hosts Tweeted; "I can tell you the three songs I heard are heavy with killer riffs and vocals. It's the same band that he has been touring with last couple years on the album, and it sounds more cohesive because of it. Really strong!"
