The "New Album" Thread - Susan McKagan says album is coming

Recommended Posts

Well, I know we've had a bunch of these threads previously but I can't easily find the last one and we have new information now.

So last we heard Slash said that they only had a few SA dates this year but would be really working on a new album.

Now they've announced some extra dates as well as a whole European leg.  

Were does this leave us in terms of new music?  Do you think a surprise album is actually ready to drop soon?  Or has the can been kicked further down the road?

I'm personally excited about getting an Irish show next year but I imagine that means nothing new for some time, all things considered... :lol:

It's clearly going to be announced in a few days (or just after the holidays), along with the first single.

Just a guess or did you hear something?

The rumours are a March/April release. Allegedly stated by Fernando and supported by others. This lines up with the 2020 tour dates, and leaves enough time to drop a single early next year for promotion. I'm cautiously optimistic, but this is GNR we're talking about.

I dont have any inside info, Fernando did confirm new album on Reddit, and all signs are pointing to it. Surely the lable wants to cash-in in this mediocrity now that the AFD re-release is well behind us.

According to some "insiders", like msl & brasky, the new album is already done with new vocals, recorded in 2019.

I dont know if its legit, but msl has proven to be right in the past.

This is it. If they are going to tour again with nostalgia only, I will turn like Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi. Meaning i've always been very positive and hopefull towards this band, but lately i've been losing my optimism and hope. Huge fan is also starting to think about this band as a joke..

 

Please GNR, restore my faith!

People are joking and scoffing about it, but honestly, in my opinion it's now or never.  As in a March/April release is either happening, or this band (namely Axl) has no real intention of putting out an album, probably ever.  

That's about as close to "optimism" as I can get right now.

Maybe I'm a mug, but I actually believe it's going to happen. All the signs are there. 

I thought when we heard Axl sounding pretty polished this year from show one of the last run that he must've been recording.

I feel quietly confident we're going to get an album next year.

Alright let's go optimistic. You think we'll get some appetite sound? Or a mixture of VR/SMKC/IZZY and CD sound?

Same here. Cautiously optimistic is where I'm at.  Slash's interview today should be awfully telling.  And who knows, he may just drop a bomb on that front.

They supposedly wrapped the "Not in this Lifetime" tour. Conventional wisdom would suggest a new album is imminent prior to the new tour.

 

However, this is Guns N' Roses. So more tour dates and no new record. Maybe 2021. *sigh*

It was on GNR's reddit. There's a thread for that I think on this forum too.

Actually I think that the biggest clue is that Jarmo said that "that's still the plan" referring to that quote. Also that this new tour is not being called NITL. I don't expect much from Slash's interview today, but we'll see. There seems to be a lot of rumours and smoke pointing in that direction.

If by February we don't have anything announced then March/April is not possible.

You're right, however, conventional wisdom does not exist in this dojo...And striking while the iron's hot hasn't been a thing for this band since 1991. 

I invite Slash to prove me wrong and announce the next album during his interview today.

It makes no difference to me what Fernando or Jarmo said. That's not a shot at either of those guys. I just believe anything in the GN'R world until I see if for myself. With regard to an album, nothing will matter to me until I'm actually holding it. 

How do you hold streams? :)

What worries me is it doesn't make sense to drop a new album then leave the United States to go tour Europe. No offense to Europe. But seems like the band would align a new record with a new North American tour. Or do bands usually wait for the record to get out there and get airplay? I don't know.

They can call this the 2020 Banana Tour, and if there's no new album to support it with it will all mean fuck all.
