Welcome to Gibson Records — they’ve got fun, games, and Slash.
According to Billboard, the famed guitar company is launching its own record label. The first Gibson Records release will be a new album from the Guns N’ Roses shredder and his solo band, Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators, due out in 2022.
Slash, of course, has long worked with Gibson on various signature guitars, and in 2017, he was named the company’s first Global Brand Ambassador.
“It’s an honor to be the first release on the new, Gibson Records,” Slash says in a statement to Billboard. “It’s a zenith in our partnership for sure and having worked so closely with Gibson for so long, I know they will be a label that genuinely supports their artists creatively. Not just me, but all the artists they choose to work with. It’s perfect.”
The new Conspirators record will follow the group’s last effort, 2018’s Living the Dream.
