New Slash interview: New album hasn't started yet

Recommended Posts

Another new Slash interview with some details on new album

He says band will tour in late September/October and that they will "start focusing on that in earnest".

He also says: “I wouldn’t say we’ve really sat down and had those sessions yet.” when asked if they had started writing together.

A bit odd to say “I wouldn’t say we’ve really sat down and had those sessions yet.” - hardly a definitive ‘we have literally done nothing’. And anyway, with the CD-era tunes in play, it’s not like they are starting from scratch either.

I thought this was strange too, it makes you wonder if they have put some non-recording work into a new album

Maybe Axl, Duff and Richard have worked into something while Slash is touring and he is speaking for himself in the interview... I wouldn't bet at it but theres a tiny possibility.

Last time he said the mini-tour would be in October, but now he’s saying it’ll start in late September... that’s something a little bit new, I guess! XD

I don't think wed have gotten another NuGNR album, anyways, so I'm glad they did the reunion thing. 2016 was awesome.

Now, it isnt special anymore. They're another nostalgia band touring their limited discography. Maybe they'll do one more like Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Van Halen, etc. Maybe they won't. They don't care

I'll see them with less enthusiasm when they come to my city for a fun night out. Who cares.

Oh well.

"We’re going to start looking very seriously at what we’re doing in that regard"

The momentum is over, Ive seen them countless times only during NITL and in the last one I was already bored as fuck.

I dont think they'll be able to push the nostalgia trip on this level much more, GNR doesnt have the catalog to be on nostalgia trips, other bands have a gazillion of records, Guns N Roses have two albuns and a EP lol. Eventually even the casuals will get tired.

It is funny, the nostalgia thing could work havent Slash and Duff returned cause there was still a element of mistery in the air, but now its all old news.

I still come to this forum everyday because I like the community lol

The reunion was 10 years past any commercial viability or shot at relevancy as far as a record goes. An ‘06, ‘07’, ‘08 return while VR winding down and public interest swirling, they could have launched themselves into the Zeppelin stratosphere. But they’re firmly entrenched as a high 3rd tier low 2nd tier all time great band.

Another wasted opportunity. Should’ve released an album during the NITL tour. Now Axl will wait 5 years to quietly release material he wrote 25 years ago with Slash and Duff pasting parts over it and hardly anyone will know about it. Grab Axl a sleeping bag and a pillow, he’s resting SO HARD on those laurels! I really don’t understand anyone getting excited to watch an overweight and out of breath Axl perform that same exhausting set list again. Release something new or hang it up, hoss! Your schtick is wearing thin!

If the band want to keep playing stadiums its a new album or bust. I personally think axls voice has 5 years at best no way 10. My biggest fear is for smkc to release a new album and tour before guns does.

This is NuGuns with Slash and Duff.

It's worse. At least NuGuns had one album to their name. This band don't even have that.

The schtick has been wearing thin for years already. And Axl has been sounding like shit since 2012.

I see Rose as effectively a legacy act, and Slash's first band is the conspirators. It makes more sense when you understand that, doesn't it?

Yeah, the Conspirators have been far more interesting than GNR for a while now.

They actually operate like a band and do things like album/tour cycles etc, unlike the corporate entity that is 2019 GNR.
