When Campbell made the announcement, he also launched an animated video for the lead track These Old Boots (opens in new tab), which featured ex-Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars, and former Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn.
And in a new video interview with Nuclear Blast, Campbell reports that he’s been planing on releasing a solo record for 20 years.
He says: “In this very studio I was upstairs at one point and I was reading a magazine from 1999. In it, I’m talking about doing my solo album – and I hadn’t done any of it!
“I’ve been threatening to do this album since at least 1999.”
He adds: “I wrote a bunch of songs and when it started to take shape, I asked some friends and acquaintances and people I’ve admired for years if they wanted to do it.
Campbell will also hook up once again with The Bastard Sons for a European tour, with dates planned throughout the remainder of 2019.
