I think this is why no one wanted to even give Silkworms a chance.

I did love seeing Stephanie on the big screen though😂. I thought for sure it was written by Axl and not Dizzy and Bumble.

Personally, I think the reunion took ALL of the air out of the argument that the record label has been the bad guy all these years. There's just no way that the label wouldn't have wanted to release an album in 2016 to strike while the iron was hot.  I'm sure Axl came up with some reason why that wasn't going to happen, but it's just easier to continue to blame the label. I've said this before, but nothing new happening in 2016 took a LOT of the wind out of my sails.

The only time I could see the label having not been interested in releasing a new album would've been 2009 - 2014. I can't blame them for that at all given Axl's ridiculous behavior once Chinese was finally released. If I were the label, I wouldn't have been in any hurry to work with an artist who refused to promote their own album. 

I would think that once the reunion happened, it’s in GNR’s best interest to release albums to somehow end their contract. The real $ for them would be a self release 

To expect something the very first year is a bit much. They were and did milk everything they could out of big payday live shows. They weren’t going to leave anything on the table to go in the studio. Especially if they didn’t want to put pressure on themselves as that situation didn’t go so well in the mid 90’s.

We’ll see what happens. If we actually get a release w 3 Duff songs, then they are truly trying the end their fulfillment to the label. If they are even close to that.

So the merch store is having a clearance. Maybe there’s something big happening on the horizon and not just new tour related stuff

For whatever it's worth, Jarmo just doubled down and said that as far as he knows, they're still planning on putting out an album and that this upcoming tour will be in support of something new.

I hadn't seen this when I made my comment about Jarmo after yours, but to be honest IMO he's acting like he doesn't have information we don't have. Saying surely it means something that the upcoming dates aren't labeled NITL is something anyone could (and repeatedly have) said here. And like I said in my post, he previously said his info was the Reddit post. So I think he knows nothing.

Well, let's put it like this, he tours with the band and would imagine he checks in with Fernando and co. from time to time.  So I trust his optimism far more than I trust whatever clowns are dropping "inside info" other places.

Has MSL said anything recently? He has his issues but he definitely had solid info from time to time.

They should be like Metallica and the GNR of old -- debut and work over songs live before they actually record anything. Get into a rhythm, see what the crowds respond to.... add new parts to existing songs, do medleys. STOP BEING FUCKING BORING, YOU'RE GUNS N' ROSES. 

If it's too taxing then cut the runtime in half. LET'S GOOOOOOOOO

Obviously you weren't around from 2001-07 because that's exactly what they did. I would prefer an album, and soon.

Hah :) Well, I was here.... in 2004-2007 at least. That's really not at all what I'm talking about. I'm talking about how they did it in the run up to recording Appetite. Or how Metallica will write a song like Lords of Summer, debut it at a festival, realize it's kind of shit and bin it without wringing their hands about it. Songwriting is about getting the reps in, or in this case dusting-off the treadmill.  

I'm not talking about having a bunch of songs for CD ready to record, playing them to tepid half-filled arenas, refusing to jettison shitty material, adding more layers to songs than a lasagna stuffed with onions and kicking the can down the round for a decade. But we're not here to re-litigate that circus. I'm talkin' 'bout THE BIG THREE ERA. LET'S GO!

My guess is that a album is in the works. For the moment nobody knows when its gonna be released, but the optimist plan would be to have the album or a single out before the european tour. But they learned from the 00s to keep their mouth shut about release dates until its 1000% sure.

Thats why we dont know the name of the tour, theres is not alot of merch onsale at the moment. The US stadium tour is uncertain. They are not sure which plan to follow.

And like we all know, all it takes is one guitar solo or the liner notes that needs to be redone and the album is delayed by 10 months in gnr world.

My prediction (more like hope)  is a 2021 release with maybe a new song this year.

I could be totally wrong. After all it might be a 2500$ locked illusions and loaded spaghetti boxset that is going to be released instead for all i know.

It would be cool as fuck if they released Hardschool as a single on January 31 and then played it (and 1-2 other 'new' songs) at the Miami show.

But it's more likely that as promotion for this leg, they'll release a "Sweet Child O' Mine (Remastered)" video and it will be all live clips from the NITL tour. Obviously it will justify at least one more year of touring because it's a brand new single. Then there will be a vinyl and t-shirt sale on their website, and half of us suckers will buy it.

No, it wouldn’t. They need to tell the world "look, we’re working on this new stuff, we’re a capable bunch", and not "here you are, some 20-year old Axl’s solo rehash, because that’s all we can do, apparently".

A single = a brand-new song, thank you very much. And yes, I would love it if they included some CD 2 stuff on the new record; that’s a different story.

The unfortunate truth is that to most people, Hardschool would be a new song. I am convinced that since it was added to the alt. setlist and rehearsed last year, it might be considered as a single for any new album.
