Slash has unveiled the lineup of his touring band, which will take to the road this spring in support of Slash's self-titled debut solo album. Joining previously announced vocalist Myles Kennedy from ALTER BRIDGE will be rhythm guitarist Bobby Schneck, who's toured with WEEZER and GREEN DAY, ALICE COOPER and VINCE NEIL drummer Brent Fitz, and BIG WRECK bass player Dave Henning.

Slash told The Pulse of Radio that he's really pleased to have Kennedy singing on the tour. "He was one of these sort of youngish rock singers that I wasn't real familiar with, who is probably one of the best, you know, young new rock 'n' roll singers around," he said. "There's actually two songs on the record that he did, and he can basically perform any other songs on the record, plus he knows how to do all the GUNS N' ROSES stuff. So it's worked out nicely."

Slash's solo album is due out on April 6.

The first single from the set, called "By The Sword", features vocals from WOLFMOTHER frontman Andrew Stockdale.

The guitarist uses a different guest vocalist on each track, including Fergie, M. Shadows, Kid Rock, Chris Cornell, Dave Grohl, Lemmy Kilmister, Iggy Pop and others.
