The "New Album" Thread

Recommended Posts

What really impresses me is this dream about new album here on forum, how many many many fans here (actually not so many) are pissed for not getting new songs nor album...

right now at the moment here on the MyGnrforum, statistics says...

1. Total members 53 380, which is really impressive (all OVER the world)

2. Most on line 3959, probably when something leaked, CD released or reunion etc

Online now 71 Members, 6 Anonymous, 60 guests

Out of these 71 members, there must be like 50 hard core fans... 35 are dying for anything new from Gnr, others are just like if it happens it is good if not, well that is life

 

Just stay with me for a moment :)

Sooo when GnR plays all over the world, how many people from this forum are attending?lets just say 1 concert anywhere in the world? I would say 50-100 at the best

 

So majority of people on concert are just regular fans or just wanted to see the legends before they die...

 

Life goes on and you can die today, tomorrow, you will never know... there are lots of others great bands to enjoy too, or to travel or swim or read good books... 

if they release album, will it change the world, end starvation, wars etc?

No, it will be just some maybe good album with few fine tunes

 

Been fan from '91, haven't seen them live nor I am sure I will but still love them and always will, with or without new music... ,,just for being truthful to themselves from the beginning (and not toward the fans) and dont give a fuck for what we or anyone else wants or desire"!

 

,,Punk as fuck" ... definitely YES... they do what they want even if it is making abnormal amounts of money :)

 

Really not trying to sound like a dick but this is probably the worst take I have ever read on this forum.

I'd love to be wrong, but I really think they're going to consider a mildly shuffled setlist along with a new stage design to be "the next chapter". 

The mindfuck for me is that they tend to lean so hard into reasons *not* to do something, to the point where it stonewalls a release.  Like Slash can record for Guns, reveal that the next album is the priority, awesome! ....But oh shit! Music is consumed differently in 2020!  Back to the drawing board!  Maybe we'll figure all that out later in the year.

...and that "punk as fuck" means making huge amounts of money?

I'm so embarrassed on Slash's behalf for him having to say that shit. He has to know that the fans aren't dumb enough to believe that line of BS.

He likely just isn't aware of all the lines of bullshit we've been fed over the year regarding new music. I'm sure he's had convos with Axl where he's given the half-ass reasons why the album won't be out to support this tour, and is just paraphrasing it back to the press.  It's sad to see him sucked into this nonsense.

If the Miami show was anything to go by, I think "mildly shuffled setlist" is being kind. Try "NITL setlist + You're Crazy."

Axl is older now, but he’s far from falling down dead. If the $ is there he’s got another 10+ years.

I don't know. I see a guy that could implode at any minute. He doesn't take care of himself or seem to do anything that could help prolong his career. He has always come across as fragile. His stage presence is pretty much gone. Most importantly he sounds like crap most of the time and his voice seems to deteriorate more each tour.  He is even a far cry from 2016 at this point which wasn't really good. There were definitely a few songs he was good at and flashes of greatness still remained but those seem to happen less and less as the months go on. 

You are correct that $$$ good keep him going for another 10 years but who cares if he is a total embarrassment up there?

I would put money on that it wasn't.  Not saying that it will be different enough to make people here happy but I wouldn't gauge anything in Miami.  That seemed like a one off. My guess is that they are still working on ideas for teh tour.

Tbh, he's been a total embarrassment since 2011 and it's gradually getting worse. I agree he's shown flashes of the old Axl on occasion, but it's getting rarer and rarer. 

I think he could improve if he shook things up a bit, made some changes to the show/setlist/song keys etc, but this is Axl we're talking about, and we all know he ain't gonna do that. Victory or death. Unfortunately, it's been death for a long time now.

He’d keel over and blow his voice out for an entire tour if he wasn’t somehow preparing and taking care of himself.  It’s a very taxing style of singing. It’s why it’s frustrating we haven’t heard studio performances where he can deliver.  People get old. People also gain weight for a variety of reasons. I don’t think any of us here are able to diagnose and play doctor 

If we’re truly on the cash in train and the band is solely a legacy act, then playing for the next decade and looking for different ways to regain interest isn’t out of the question. Especially if it comes to a AFD/UYI reunion situation 

Still haven’t heard why Izzy would cash in his last payday for a 5 figs per show. I don’t think it makes sense for him or the band to do it this tour. They’ve already cashed the checks for these shows

I'm sure someone else has the link to the exact quote, but he more or less said it's super hard for GNR to figure out how to release music because releasing music is so hard in 2020.

I wonder how much time this excuse will have bought Axl.  My guess is a lot, unfortunately.

I think maybe it kinda shows a Gn'R release is different. Maybe bigger and comes with certain expectations. So it's more about how Axl will like to do it. Figuring out the best or right approach.

Well it would be awfully nice if they figure that out before Axl is collecting social security.

If there is no new music in the foreseeable future, it will be highly entertaining to see Slash's interviews in the years to come. He will always get asked about new Guns music, and so far he's managed to blag it by giving excuses about relentless touring, or not knowing how to release it etc. What's he going to say when he's promoting the next SMKC album in 2021 without any sign of new GNR music?

If nothing else, it'll be fun watching him squirm his way out of these questions, because he so obviously can't tell us the truth that Axl Rose is the problem.

I must’ve missed something. When did “Yarmo” (I’m calling him that cause I’m not sure if we’re even allowed to say his name on here) say that the new music might drop and/or be announced in between SA and Europe? I haven’t heard that before until reading one of the replies on the previous page.

He's making gazillions with these shows.  You'll never hear him blame Axl.  And if he's got some new riffs he's kicking around, he can always pump out another album with Myles.

Yeah. If i had to guess (based on what little I know about Slash), he probably still sees SMKC as his true “creative home” anyways, whereas GnR is probably just a job to him now. A fun job, sure, but a job nonetheless.

Slash can dodge that easily.  His management just has to make clear "No GnR questions or no interview"  and he's good.

Just remembered that in August 2018 when Slash was doing a whole bunch of interviews he very optimistically said he was confident they'd get into an album-tour-album-tour cycle and keep going indefinitely.

Yep.  SMKC is his creative release, GNR is funding his retirement.

I remember that. He clearly doesn't know Axel! :D

Not shouldnt give but dont give a shit for anyone and that is from their early days, especially Axl

we're all gonna die someday :)

just saying that majority of people on concerts are regular fans, and many others who just wanted to hear Dont cry, Sweet child, November rain and few others

Yeah :)

even Sex pistols did it in the 70-es

they got million pounds for album, broke up, took money and released some shit just to fullfill a contract and they are legends for that :) (it was something like that, cant remember clearly)

 

so why not earn millions if they are serving on a plate?

I mentioned it - another poster referred to it and I repeated it......could be crap but I gather that Jarmo has been close to band management in the past?

Edit - it was @SoulMonster who mentioned it originally

And Jarmo seems quite confident new music will be announced after the South American tour before the start of the European tour. So stop with the ridiculous "we are never getting new music, boohoo," new music hasn't been this likely in many years.“
