  1. The "New Album" Thread

    The economy is in a precarious position and could get much worse before the end of the year. Coupled with a global pandemic forcing lockdowns in many countries, and we have a situation where people can't or won't spend a lot of money on non-essential products. How does this affect a release via streaming mediums? It affects it because most companies would not just drop music on Spotify and leave it at that. To do so is poor business practice and poor marketing. Most companies would tie in a future physical release or other calls to action to increase sales and other conversions. The potential for the pandemic and economy to hinder this is significant. We also have to consider the fact that both factors dominate headlines and will continue to do so. Releasing an album now will gain some earned media, but it will quickly fall and the impact will be low as a result. It's much more wise to release a single every couple of months, and promote an album launch for November (or another date). Dropping an entire album on Spotify now, with significant risk to any follow-up marketing for physical sales, makes no sense at all.
  2. Reminds me of that legend who kept yelling out 'Hardschool' at their Vegas show last year.
  3. The "New Album" Thread

    No company in their right mind would release a product in the current circumstances, even if that product is primarily consumed through a streaming medium. I think the best we can hope for is November, because most predictions do not expect this virus to clear up anytime soon, and that's not even considering the lingering economic impact.
  4. The "New Album" Thread

    If Malibu is forced to quarantine, do you think Axl will call in air drops of Taco Bell?
  5. Is the intro to Hardschool done by Buckethead?
  6. As we have fuck all to talk about for months, i'm resurrecting this to discuss the recent rehearsal. I think the intro that has been reconstructed by Duff and Slash is infinitely better than the intro in this leak. I love the classic bass line and Slash's alterations on the lead. With the new intro, it is immediately identifiable as a GNR song - it has me excited to hear the studio version and/or a live version soon. I think Axl's vocals were poor, obviously given it was a rehearsal, but it would be interesting to see if Axl re-recorded it at all.
  7. I still think Perhaps is the best song out of the set, but Atlas Shrugged's lyrics are stronger than all of them. It's for this reason i think it has more staying power than most of the leaks. State of Grace is good, but clearly needs much more work. Hardschool is a great rocker but could do with a lot of refining. Eye on You is, well, Eye on You.
  8. We're complaining because it isn't genuine. It's just a cringeworthy catchphrase that means nothing. We've seen how TB actually treats the 'GNR fam'. They treat them with disdain, they pull their videos off the internet, and they don't give a fuck about any type of community engagement.
  9. The "New Album" Thread

    Not many people give a fuck about SMKC. We know that Guns have been recording. We have got confirmation in numerous interviews with Slash and Duff. We have got confirmation that things are happening with Hardschool.
  10. The "New Album" Thread

    Except there is GNR stuff happening...
  11. You just know it's a Fernando thing.
  12. The "New Album" Thread

    There's a reason why movies are being delayed, it's because people have bigger things to worry about right now and are unlikely to spend money or go out in large gatherings (to purchase physical tickets). As much as i want a GNR album, they sure as hell won't release it during a pandemic.
  13. The "New Album" Thread

    From a marketing point of view, it would be better to officially release a new single or album before playing any of the material live. You don't want random videos on the internet showing a subpar live Axl to be the first touchpoint people have with the new material. Also no money to be made that way.

    I think there would have been a chance, but we will now have to wait a few more months until Europe (that is if they aren't cancelled by then). We could theoretically be waiting 8 months or so if shit hits the fan big time.
