GNR Manager Fernando Confirms New Album Within 6 Months!!

I very much doubt we'll see anything with the band actually starring in it. At most probably one of those "lyric videos" which seem to have become popular the last few years.

Or just make it out of archive footage, all the documentary footage they have from over the years.

I could see that cheeky Fernando saying to himself, “If I just dodge the question, it seemingly confirms this new album, and gets the fans hyped enough to stay intrigued.” 

Axl should fire the guy if it's really him. I sure as hell would. Like wtf?? Dude announces a new gnr anything on reddit ffs? 😂 One would like to believe and think it'd be Axl/GnR doing that on their official web page no? "This whole thing is fucked up..."

I would also couple it with the fact that 90 percent of the audience doesn’t want to hear it 

However yes. If they play something new that video would be making press rounds and god forbid it’s not the best performance. Could deflate any momentum they had in mind for a release. 

That being said, “Victory or Death”? 

All good points.  Even a new song by 3/5th of the Appetite line-up would be a bathroom break for most of the audience.  Happens to every band.  There are the fans like us who would be going berserk and claiming the song will light the world on fire, and then there's reality and everyone else in it.

this happens when you let some random incompetent, but arrogant and sometimes even flat out hostile bunch of people "manage" a multimillion music act. I know no other "management" which managed to perfectly disconnect and alienate the band from its fanbase.

Luckily this alleged proclamation hasn’t picked up any major steam online. I’d say the damage hasn’t been done yet to affect a timeline (if there even is one at this point)

Timing is paramount in today’s music scene. Attention spans are minimal and you really need a short burst strategy to get traction.

I’m actually interested in seeing how they roll this out when it’s time

Those retarded outlets like blabbermouth and alternativenation read this forum. A thread with this name will have them read it and post about it, it's just a matter of time and then it will spread like a wildfire and it might end up affecting the release date haha

Especially in this day & age.  I know a few bands do, but, no band really wants to play a new song live anymore because of youtube.

YouTube isn’t a problem for this band...unfortunately

youtube and leaks are just a good excuse for this band to not do anything at all, blaming everyone else, just not their laziness and inability to get anything done.

Can we get a little more context on the conversation with Fernando? Was it a call or via text? Maybe there's a chance that he didn't read/heard the question?

 

It was a text conversation and again, he was asked directly three different times. He read the question all three times, then continued on with the conversation without answering it.

Reopening this thread that @sofine11made yesterday.

We were in contact with Fernando directly today. He was asked 3 times throughout the conversation if the reddit account was his, but he chose not to answer that question during the course of the conversation. 

So... due his dodging of a direct question (THREE times!) we'll just assume the account is his.

It’s still 6 months out. I wouldn’t say it affects anything to push it. It’s more of the pressure it puts on everyone to deliver something. Although everyone forgets after 4 days anyways   

However for example. If they wanted to keep things silent and hit with a major announcement and capitalize with preorder options simultaneously, this could deflate things as the cat is officially out of the bag 

Who knows. I’m interested to see how they roll things out. I hope it goes well

I think something is happening. I think Slash was at axls recording when the amp company leaked it on their Facebook.

Stuff is happening, because now for the first time since 1993 we have a band that does not have revolving band members. This is the band and NITL is running dry so something needs to happen or silence. They have pretty much said they will be a band and tour for years to come.. an album is inevitable.

No guarantees in this life.  They've earned the rep of "believe it when I see it."

I'm wondering if I made thier most hated fan list.. ( don't say there's no list.. I know first hand there's a list of forum members for over a decade that are monitored by team Brazil and the guns camp) 

I just want new music like everyone else here.. I think it's bullshit that (if it is him which I believe it is) he will attack fans for the perceptions when we don't get any formally addressed updates. It took "Fernando" almost 2 days to respond to that question compared to a quick backhanded response to fans about merchandise and being uninformed fans.

The new album that’s done and ready to release: I am inevitable

Axl: And I... am... Axl Rose

They can add me to that list.  He doesn't personally know the fans any more than we personally know him, and yet, he's never done anything but judge and condescend, so now I'm going to judge him.  He's never come off as anything more than a spoiled, entitled twit.  Glad to know that it sounds like he hasn't changed since I've been away.

Yeah I tend to agree with that. Doesn't seem like a very nice way to treat any fans to me. Tbh I can't seem to recall ANY other band or their mgmt. being as abusive to a beyond super loyal fanbase like that ever in my whole life. It makes zero sense whatsoever to me. But what would I know right? 😳

Seems odd that he can put a time frame on the release but revealing a working title is something he'd have to wait for the band to announce.

Also there should not be one song from the CD era carried over to a new release. Axl should release a solo effort with all the stuff he has finished if he wants it out there. Everything on this new release should be, well, new.

If that account really is Fernando, as touched on previously by other posts, it highlights just how absurd the management of this band is. @guitarpatchhit the nail on the head. Timing and striking at the right moment is critical in the music arena nowadays. Flop and top are finite margins. If it is actually him, he is an even bigger clown than I initially thought.

It also should be noted that for how big of a news story this would be.. It seems that reddit thread is deliberately getting down voted to fall deeper in the sub.. 

Everything around it has 30-40 up votes and that thread itself has a total of 2

Don't disagree, but, good luck waiting for that.  You're setting yourself up for heartache.

Why so much bitching? This is good news.

Because he won't even confirm it's his account on Reddit. It comes off as unprofessional, kinda rude, and more of the same shit of keeping hardcore fans in the dark. We don't even know if the good news is real.
