Well....nothing.

None of us really understand what they mean, as every other musician in the world knows how to release new music. 

and to add to your point, 2 out of the big 3 in Gnr have no issues releasing solo and stuff with other bands,  Its comical that slash would day it while churning out album after album

Slash only said they had more options now than before when it comes to releasing music, and they hadn't decided how to do it. Stop making this into more than it is :lol:

Sure. They're just deciding how to release it. That's the hurdle. That bloody "industry" just thwarts them at every juncture! 

If there was any serious plans to release an album, it would be out.

Only this band can prop up the faux importance of music-business semantics to delay the release of their first album together in 17 years (and the first under the band's name in 12 years).

 

Tons of other bands don't worry about all of this crap. They just release new music because they have a passion for it — and because they want to give their work to others for their enjoyment. Why does everything on the business/semantics/"what is the PERFECT way to handle this?" side have to me weighed more than what actually matters when it comes to GNR?

I'm always generous and say 12 years since the last release. I understand people feel differently about CD though.

I don't really understand what they mean about not knowing how to release new music. Axl put out Chinese Democracy in 2008. What am I missing?

I know that statement is often referred to here, but I think it’s just a misunderstanding on our part or maybe a rather poor choice of words on his. To me, what he was saying was that they’ve been pondering various possibilities today’s markets have, considering the whole online world etc., that’s all. He wasn’t saying they’re literally at a loss regarding how to release an album. Plus, they don’t wanna give anything away apparently, hence the constant beating around the bush. 
But given how pissed off we are in general, I’m not really surprised by people’s reactions here. Every statement is over-dissected, isn’t it.

Who was the user that said they'd seen a list of song titles for CD2?

I'm assuming this is the list. :rolleyes:

So......a bunch of song titles that have been mentioned in very public places, along with names of songs from the original CD album? Lol

The one that always makes me laugh is "Monstrosity". Anyone remember that fake picture of the "CD single", with a big fuckin Monster Energy logo on the cover? I think it was also "co-written" by Dj Ashba. :lol:

Hahaha! 

What is it about this band that attracts SO MANY bullshit rumours and pretend insiders? I suppose the lack of activity and information means they absolutely gravitate towards GNR, like moths to a flame.

It’s crazy Pearl Jam figured out to release a new album despite covid-19, a canceled/postponed tour, AND the current landscape of the music industry.

Well, it helps if you have an album to release! Suddenly the whole process becomes very easy.....

I think it’s due to the fact that we hear nothing from the band, this creating a vacuum which quickly gets filled with bullshit and misinformation.

We practice selective annihilation of sources and forum officials, for example, to create a vacuum. Then we fill that vacuum. As popular rumours advance, release is closer.

When was this confirmed, that it was fake? I've just encountered the pictures a couple of days ago. Looked like someone had put quite some time on it.

There's no end to the amount of time these "insiders" will put into trying to make themselves seem legit.

If I remember correctly, it was around the time that "Legend Of The Red Panda" was a rumoured title, and MSL was flaunting a USB drive full of documents and remixes.

Someone probably did spend a bit of time on it... but it wouldn't be the first time someone has wasted their time and effort making fake GNR stuff :lol:

A surprise album, like Eminem and many other artists have down. Or an album at all, like every other artists on Earth is able to do.
