Clarke has signed a global deal with Golden Robot Records, a label that also boasts the likes of Rose Tattoo, Little Caesar, and GNR keyboardist Dizzy Reed. The agreement will see the guitarist release new album The Gospel Truth in the first half of 2019, marking his first solo album release in 15 years.
“I am so happy to be a part of the Golden Robot family for my new solo record,” said Clarke. “I use the word family because I feel like I found a home. We share the same passion for rock ‘n’ roll. Rock ‘n’ roll is alive and well, and together we will turn it up loud.”
The Gospel Truth will feature guest spots from industry legends, including drumming from Kenny Aronoff (John Mellencamp and Chickenfoot) and Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction, Porno For Pyro, Infectious Grooves).
Clarke joined Gun N’ Roses in late 1991 as a replacement for Izzy Stradlin, staying with the group for three years and appearing on albums such as Spaghetti Incident, Live Era ’88-’91 and The Greatest Hits.
