04) Kiko Loureiro working on new album

Last week, Blabbermouth reported guitarist Kiko Loureiro (Megadeth/ex-Angra) is working on his next solo album, which marks the follow-up to 2012’s Sounds of Innocence. According to Blabbermouth, Loureiro shared a video via social media with the following message:

“I’m here doing pre-production on my new album. I’m just working on new songs and recording drums next week. It’s a mix of some ideas that I had in the past and some stuff that I just worked [on] in the past few weeks. I don’t know when I’m gonna record the guitars. So probably until the end of the year, I’m gonna finish recording and mixing. I don’t know when it will be released.

Anyway, we’re gonna finish the new Megadeth album first. It’s good to take the time now to play some guitar and develop some different ideas and put my creative mind to work a little bit. I’m sure you guys are gonna love it.”

The Megadeth/ex-Angra guitarist later shared an image via social media of him and Angra drummer Bruno Valverde recording drums at Big Bad Sound LA for what is presumed to be for his next solo effort:
