Slash Announces U.S. Tour Dates

Slash has just announced a run of U.S. tour dates for this coming May in support of his upcoming second solo album. All of the dates for the tour -- which kicks off May 3 in Baltiomore -- can be seen below.

The former Guns N' Roses guitarist is currently in the mixing stages of completing his as-yet-untitled new album, which is due out May 22 on his own Dik Hayd International Label.

"Myles and I basically collaborated on the new material," said Slash of his new album. "The main thing is we wrote these songs together which is a big difference from the last album where I wrote each song with all of the different collaborators. The whole creative nucleus is between Myles and me. On top of this, the whole rhythm section of Brent and Todd brings something to the table and changes the dynamic completely from the last record--it’s much more cohesive."
