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

Recommended Posts

I mean, silver lining is that on Jan 31st when the setlist is essentially a copy and paste from NITL it will be less of a gut punch.  At least we can check our expectations going forward, and see this tour for the wheel spinning cash grab that it is.

Here's an idea- DO WHAT YOU DID WITH SMKC! 

Release the album. Tour it. Then release a live album of the tour. 

People like me will buy the album, go to the tour, and buy the live album. 

Sire the industry has 'changed' buy EVERY OTHER BAND, including HIS OTHER BAND have no problem releasing a CD, a vinyl, and putting the album on streaming sites. Be it Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, fucking Taylor Swift, Neil Diamond, whatever. 

To be honest, I find it a bit if an insult to blame the industry for this one. Both himself and Duff know how to release albums......GNR aren't some majestical special case. 

True. And the thing that Ozzy releases album that features him and Duff in one month just show how full of shit they are. Like, you are working with so many artists and only GNR has an issue with releasing what they recorded wtf

You're not sure what to do with the album? How about just releasing it? The people who buy records will buy the record and the people who stream their music will stream it. What's the big deal? It's a very simple process. Only some megalomaniac who wants his record to be some kind of an event that breaks the internet and saves rock n' roll would see a problem here. Oh right...    :axl:

Exactly. And this 'oh, there's no point in releasing traditional albums' anymore line is such crap. Bands that play 200 capacity venues still manage to record and release albums, on the limited budgets they have!

It's just a load of flannel to cover up the fact that they have a singer who can't sing, write new music or release anything. Chris Pitman said the exact same thing about ten years ago.

I feel more saddened by these Slash quotes than I have by ANYTHING the band have done in their whole career. It feels like the shutters have gone down.

I preferred the old Slash who used to call Axl out on his shit in interviews. The new Slash is a pussy. 

That’s how Brazilian mind washing works

If they shock me with playing something new live on the 31st or other dates after that, then I’ll be excited. But as of right now, this is the last fucking thing I wanted to here concerning new music or a new album

Slash is obviously just parroting whatever nonsense Axl fed him as to why there's no album coming.  Slash obviously doesn't operate the way he described in terms of putting out music.  Life's only as complicated as you make it.  He needs to stop drinking the Team Brazil Kool Aid.

Well any hope I had left for anything new this year has died for me. This band is a joke, Slash needs to stop talking and just tour forever if that's what they want to do.

Slash is making more money than he's made probably since the early 90s with these shows.  Despite all the claims that he wouldn't stick around if Axl held up new music he's obviously content to let this band coast on auto pilot, the same way it has for the past 10 years. And now he's echoing Axl's mind fucking excuses for no new music like a good little soldier.  Pathetic.

He is now a kind of hostage in this situation, sadly.

There will come a point where they'll have to announce either

1) a new album 

2) that there won't be a new album

3) the end of GNR

 

They can't stay silent forever, fans are already disappointed and the press and casuals probably will be to at some point

He may be deviating information, I think Axl’s the only one allowed to talk about new stuff.

At least we know some stuff was recorded

I don't see any particular problem there. Basically what he's said before, more or less. Whatever they're up to, this was not the place to give it away. Main thing is, they've been recording. The resulting form is a secondary matter.

The sad thing is, they won't have to do that. They can, in theory, do this for the rest of their lives. They'll probably always be able to play arenas and can roll round every couple of years, sell some t-shirts to rich and fat people who want to pretend it's 1989 and it would be fine.

Most people would probably even prefer the trip down memory lane to being remotely challenged by anything new. They can get drunk, take a selfie with their back to the stage, wear an Axl bandana or Slash hat, maybe even take an inflatable guitar with them. They can make it an 'office social' and all their buddies can come along and record 'November Rain' on their phones. Then they can fuck off back to the sort of lives GNR in the 80s stood against. 

Those of us who give a fuck about the band? We can hope for better than that, as we know what this band are capable of. That's probably the most infuriating part.

It is almost beyond ridicule really?

That and the only other thing I can think of is that Slash is ALWAYS vague about everything. 

He was saying he didn't know anything about rejoining GNR all the way up until he posted the Coachella announcement on his social media. 

For me, 01/31 remains my "drop dead date". If nothing happens that date, I'm just done with GNR for the year. I've got all the other sections here, tons of other artists and now my own podcast to be concerned with :)
