The "New Album" Thread

Recommended Posts

I think the big difference for me these days is that I really don't care that much any more. IF a new GN'R album is ever released... Sweet! If not, no biggie. 

I used to get really mad over GN'Rs complete inability to capitalize on so many perfect opportunities that have come and gone over the years. After a while, I wouldn't even get mad any more, I would just laugh at it when it happened. 

Now, here we are with yet another perfect opportunity for them to make a move. If nothing happens this weekend, I'm good. I've got concerts I'm looking forward to tomorrow night and Saturday night. Then I've got new albums from tons of other artists to look forward to starting next Friday. 

So if nothing happens this weekend with GNR, it just doesn't matter all that much to me anymore. 

I am almost at your point.  I am going to the show in 12 hours, I have really good seats.  If they play the same NITL set list I have seen 5 times already, I will still enjoy the show, but than I officially will graduate to your point of view.  I won't get mad anymore, I just won't give a shit anymore either.  Weirdly I enjoy seeing them so much live, that similar set lists don't bother me much.  would I love a new song, or another deep cut put in ? Sure, but I also realize 97% of the audience is seeing them for the first time this tour and the band wants to give them the best possible show. They are not going to cater to the 1% ( us ) who care about if they add 1 more song to the set.  However, if there is no announcement, or nothing amazing happening tonight, I am finished hoping anymore.

It is all so simple when you stop expecting anything from the band. When everything that happens is just an positive surprise. Then you can't get disappointed and you can actually take some pleasure knowing the band is still active and touring, at least. Better than if they just quit. Just don't expect anything. It will save you a lot of frustration and disappointment.

We would’ve heard something by now. Probably a website rebrand, leaks or heavy rumors, more favorable interviews with band members, not to mention it’s come Friday without any new single drop or announcement. I think the ship has officially sailed.

I know. If there's a new album in the making (big if) I don't expect to hear anything about it until spring.

I still really care, and I still have a lot of hope (for some stupid reason). We’ll see what happens tonight.

I still care. In the sense that when good things happen I am happy. Like I still am completely awed about the 2019 leaks and keep listening to the songs over and over. I am still a fan of the music. I just don't expect anything good to happen and hence I can't be disappointed.

Well obviously I too still care, but I don't expect anything. At times I get a little bored, then I get hooked on something. Recently I caught a few live videos from 2019 and loved them! 

I care about the leaks I've heard. Great songs!

Yeah, it's more of a knowing shake of the head on my end.  Think a friend who for the life of them just can't kick a drug or alcohol problem.  At one point you may have been on their case, but at some point you have to let go.  That's how I've come to think of GNR when it comes to new music.

See you all in 2021 with the same discussions!

Still curious to see if they shake up tonight’s show in any form. We probably won’t even get that lol.

This thread has 69 pages and I can't be bothered to read them, but I swear if this band ever releases a new album with new songs on it that we've never heard nor heard OF before, I'll eat my cats.

Or, like, obviously I would never actually eat my cats because they're my precious little babies, but I think Guns doing that is about as improbable as me eating my cats.

Sad.  At least I know not to spend 1 red cent on this band's shows going forward.

We’ve been having similar discussions for 10 fuckin years. Oh maybe this will be the year? The new tour must mean new music is coming!! Richard said this, DJ said that!!

Fucks sake, they should change the name to Cock Tease and Roses 🤣
