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

Recommended Posts

I can definitely understand all the talk about chinese leftovers.  no doubt it's a very valid topic.

does anyone wonder if there will be any Velvet Revolver left overs?  remember Scott turned away alot of instrumentals they wrote prior to Contraband as he said it "sounded too much like Bad Company".  Undoubtedly some of that stuff was probably written with Izzy. 

And I think there is post Libertad stuff- I think nearly a full album was recorded with Corey Taylor.  

anyone think any VR leftovers could be possible???

I reckon there would have been heaps of riffs and probably complete instrumentals from VR, SMK, Loaded, snakepit to sift through if they even went that far. Hopefully Axl has been going through them all and picking the cream of the crop to lay vocals on...... one can dream.

Based on previous interviews I think it will sound like CD but more modern (as Richard said once) and with Slash's guitar style. But I think Richard will have a lot of moments on the album too (can't remember who said that, maybe Axl?).

And due to Axl's desire to make a trilogy I have a guess on a double album, or maybe two albums released togheter or within a year period like The 1975 is doing.

Wow this is great news indeed, I wonder if Susans' conversation re new album was planned.  Whatever I dont have any expectations  it will just be good, well pretty exciting, to hear new/hybrid music from this band that I, and my friends, have just discoverd:wow:

Well there are four possibilities:

1) Chinese stuff with some Bucket/Robin und some rework by Slash

2) Chinese stuff totally reworked

3) New Axl/Duff/Slash songs

4) Old Axl/Duff/Slash/Izzy songs

 

I'd like to hear all of those of course. But I doubt, they will ever see the light of day. Best guess is a mixture of 1, 2 and 3. But since there's a lot of material out there, a double album is something that could work best and showcase all the guitar players. I can believe, Axl wants to shelf everything pre-Slash. At least that's the dream anyways...

number 1 for me in case we never get a chi dem boxset lol... if it has to have some re-work from slash so be it but I wanna hear the songs from the nu gnr phase with bucket and or fincks work :):)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               2 and 3 are basically the same as totally reworked Chinese stuff with slash an duff would technically be new songs, cos they are "newer" songs.. 4 would be a hidden gem for sure!

That being said, I would also be hoping number 1 would involve joshs/brains drums on the chi dem tracks left on there as to frank re working them... nice guy but prefer the other two chaps style with that era/songs from the leaked demo's :):)

My prediction is that it will probably sound reminiscent of the "good time" moments (like Bad Obsession, Bad Apples, Breakdown) on Illusions and Spaghetti (Human Being, Raw Power [yes, I know, covers, but])

God I fucking love Human Being. Spaghetti Incident is so underrated. 

Would love them to celebrate the anniversary with a tiny show playing just Spaghetti tracks and a couple of their harder tracks.

Stream it/release it for free money. But *sigh* it'll never happen.

I would be stunned if Slash allowed any Bucket or Finck on any release.

I think everything would have to be reworked so it was only Slash and Fortus.

Actually it's gonna be the 5th option.

A "Frankenstein" of the above.

Since I also like the NuGuns era I'm hoping for a release of those tracks with the original personal. Even if it's a boxset to end those times. It would be like drawing a line to separate it from the Slash II-era. But I fear that some kind of hybrid is probably the most likely thing to come out of it.

No. 4 is a dream which is just a silly daydream.

Like most fans of this band, I think that I just want some good sounding Guns music! It is long overdue.

Susan is the one who broke the news of an impending tour and before that, of Slash and Duff returning. She is our most reliable source.

We now believe even more. Susan is better than the other one.

I hope Axl gives up on the hip hop beats fiasco.

 

I mean there's room for those beats in rock music.

Look at what the Arctic Monkeys did with a bass and drums driven approach on AM, produced one of the classic albums of the 2010's.

This is how i feel as well. Release a box set to at least credit the nuguns lineup, and start a new chapter and new songs with this lineup.

Although a hybrid to at least test the waters and the band become familiar again.

I still think the most likely scenario is that we only hear Bucket, Robin and Tommy (and Paul Huge, who actually did some pretty cool stuff on Chinese) if the demos eventually leak.

Unfortunately I think Frank will be recording the drums.

I don't mind the hip hop beats that much, but I agree that he should not use them. But I think Frank did fine on the CD tracks he recorded.

No ...there can't be any trace of Bucket and Robin...that era is over.....get over it...I want a raw bluesy tone...the true follow up to the Illusion records

Sounds boring. I'd like a mix of the best material from the best musicians.

One of the most dull bands I've ever heard in my life. I'd be devastated if GNR churned out anything as derivative as they manage.

I don't know exactly, but hopefully someone on here can help.

I believe Izzy helped with "do it for the kids" as the riff is similar to "bomb" which is on Izzy's Like a dog album from 2005.  I know they also wrote Snafu which Izzy ended up keeping and putting on the Like a Dog album as well.  

But I don't know for sure which other VR songs he helped write.  Seems like he kept most of his riffs for himself after the VR sessions.
