Slash has begun pre-production on his follow up to his 2010 self-titled debut solo album. He recently wrapped up a few days of studio work with two members of his touring band, according to a handful of Twitter posts.

The former Guns N' Roses guitarist entered the studio on June 14 with his drummer Brent Fitz and bassist Todd Kearns to work on the album, but will take a break from recording the disc to embark on a tour and work on a movie project with his production company Slasher Films.

"Had a really productive week working on new songs w/B & T," Slash wrote Friday on Twitter. "Start back up in Sept. after tour & Slasher shoot." He also Tweeted the above photo of him working with Fitz and Kearns in the studio, and mentioned in another Tweet that he can't wait for Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy to add vocals to the tracks.

Slash will kick off a European tour with his band on July 9 in Kinross, UK. The trek is scheduled through a July 31 gig in Belgrade, Serbia.
