The "New Album" Thread

Recommended Posts

Yeah, or the interview could have been done in December or something. But we're stretching it a little.

What's giving some kind of hope that something new is coming this year is that Jarmo is really optimistic about it. I don´t think he ever was this confident in the past years

I bet he is dying to say it’s just a matter of Axl feeling comfortable to do it! 

Agree. More like "if axl joined us regulary for rehearsals and took the onerous in wanting to play different stuff, we would love to play something different".

I hope there will be new music this year doesn't exactly sound like they're working on anything. 

I think like Jarmo, hes just being coy so not to be a disappointment.

If there's going to be an official announcement for a new album, it's certainly not going to come from Fortus.

Out of all the tracks that were on CD or those that were leaked last year, Hard School is the most classic sounding GNR song that had leaked. I have serious doubts that it came from the various CD lineups for Nu-GNR. I do think this might have been one of the songs that Matt Sorum mentioned regarding 7 completed tracks and 7 songs that they were working on during the mid 90s before Slash left the band. 

Still don't care, as that's not my point. See here:

Doesn't matter, this is a different situation. Is it really that hard to see my point? They need to show the world what they're capable of now, not what some former variant created two decades ago - that can be included in the record, but the single should be a representative of the current existence. 

(And btw yes, I would like some CD leftovers on the album, but not as a single.)

Hell of a way to conduct an interview. Not a single shred of anything new. Even the Perfect Crime bit is nothing surprising, cause it used to be on the alt. playlist years ago.

Fortus: We love bringing new songs in. We always rehearse stuff up. It's just a matter of everyone sort of feeling comfortable to integrate it into the show. I hope that we have new music out this coming year.

“The show”.... Urggghhhhh.... Everyone being Axl I guess?

Seems a bit more vague than his usual responses on the subject. Like someone else said, he definitely won’t be the one to announce new GNR material so I wonder if he’s being more vague on purpose

GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Richard Fortus was asked in a new interview with Forbes for an update on fresh music from the band, as well as the possibility of varying up the setlist on this year's tour. He responded: "We love bringing new songs in. We always rehearse stuff up. It's just a matter of everyone sort of feeling comfortable to integrate it into the show. I hope that we have new music out this coming year."

If they were about to announce an album this is exactly what they'd get him to say. Or if they weren't about to announce an album this is also what they'd get him to say. So this really doesn't tell us a whole heap.

If they’re really serious about this lineup and will actually release something in the future, I could see Axl putting Fortus to hold a press conference just to legitimate his position even more. People say Axl is loyal and Fortus is on the band for 300 billion years more than Slash after all.

Trying to be positive, there was a similar situation in 2015, when Richard vaguely hinted (along these lines) that Guns would be active in 2016, and it’d be a big year, without saying anything directly about the reunion. Point being, if something new was on the way, Fortus definitely knows how to be coy.

Pearl Jam just simultaneously announced their new album and US tour dates today.  I wonder if GNR are planning on doing a similar "package" announcement with US dates and album news.

Yeah it would.  I wonder if that's why they're holding back on revealing the US tour.  A big package announcement would be incredible, obviously.

You mean you're wondering if GNR will act like every other band? Come on now, this isn't a fan fiction site! 

Haha, no, I just mean that it's interesting that this marketing approach is being used by another A-list rock band at this time of year to promote their US tour.  We saw how Susan was quick to delete that bit from her instagram.  Maybe it's being saved for a larger announcement?  Lol grasping at straws is about all we can do with the current management regime being...well...what it is.

I can't wait for the next US tour. I'm *attempting* to save up all year.

Guns at the very least needs to just get one single out this tour. At the very least, just something to shake things up.

You see, they won't do that because it would actually make sense

We've been reduced to hoping they release ONE SONG. 

Not saying I disagree with you. Just saying that's what we've been reduced to.

After the last Fortus interview and more signs lining up to it being more NITL it’s all I think I can realistically see happening at this point, even then probably not. 
 

As I’ve said, 2020 is really the last year where we can figure out their intentions in regards to new music. If nothing happens this year I’d say it’s absolutely a closed book until a posthumous release.

There's something almost freeing in that if they don't drop this album by the time the tour starts in March, it'll likely never happen.
