DaveDavies.comKinks guitarist Dave Davies will return with a new collection of original recordings in the coming months. The veteran rocker has posted a message on his official Facebook page revealing that he recently completed the album, which "should be released at the end of 2012."
Dave also reports that "some interesting special guest musicians" appear on some of the tunes. He adds, "I am really looking [forward] to promoting this album."
In the same post, Davies addresses "some disinformation" he says certain online media outlets have published regarding the status and history of The Kinks.
"The Kinks split up in 1996 because [his brother and the band's frontman] Ray wanted to [pursue] a solo career," explains Dave. "[Drummer] Mick [Avory] left the band around 1982 [and] was replaced by Bob Henrit who played with us until '96."
He adds, "I have been recording and touring ever since as a solo performer."
In other news, Dave is preparing to host his third Satsang Weekend later this month at his home in North Devon, England. Davies' official website describes the event as "a gathering for seekers of truth, lovers of music and meditation, metaphysics, spiritual healing and so much more!" The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is planning to debut some of his new tunes during the getaway.
