If they're doing a UYI box set next year then how does a new album fit into that? Wouldn't they want to do that at a different time so that one doesn't take away hype from the other? Or do they figure that it's fine to do both in the same year?

It's a good point, but on the positive side, selling the two products at once could be a win win also. I can imagine a UYI badass box causing that nostalgia/hype and a new album available on streaming services.

Maybe, I'm not sure Fernandon't can handle doing both at the same time though. Although I guess it's the label taking care of it.

This news should excite me, but it's discouraging because it appears to indicate there never was an album with a planned release "within six months" (which would have been spring). Then Fernando came back and said due to covid, plans changed.

So are we supposed to believe they're working on even more new music?

I'll bet there never was an album done. Sad.

I think you all misunderstood what Fernando said. And you are just choosing to hear what you want to believe.

He actually said that within six months there was going to be a three hour meeting to discuss the possibility of maybe talking about the potential for a future album to be quite seriously considered to be maybe worked on and even perhaps be in contention for Axl to vaguely contemplate to release. So yeah, concrete plans in the world of GnR. :P

Personally thats the conversation they should have had during 2017, if axl had some passion about GNR. Sounds like axl is shit scared about releasing new music, especially 4 years since NITL started. If axl is "vaguely contemplating" releasing new material then axl is quite content with GNR being a touring band only and the only "new" song that will be added to the setlist is a reworked 20 to 30 year old song.

Slash just said the opposite of that !!!!

The chorus is where it's kicks in I think, definitely could be a pretty great GNR song with Slash/Duff input. Also, trying say a song as bad off a 15 seconds soundbite from a rehearsal doesn't make much sense when the full song is available and most who've heard it agree it's a pretty great song.

Did I say it was a bad song? I just said the clip I heard didn't excite me.. Axl's voice was the biggest turn off

This is the feeling I get too, unfortunately. Oh well. We just take what we can get I guess lol. I’ve learned to adopt a defeatist mentality when it comes to GnR. In any case, I’ll be interested to hear what Aint Goin Down sounds like live next year.

HERE IS THE REAL DEAL: people are asking for refunds due to the coronavius and the postponement of all tours. They are not filling up stadiums anymore in 2019/2020, they are afraid of people asking for refunds and some shows being permamently cancelled because of a lack of audience. So, here they come with "working on new music" again: so people still get putting some attention to the band!

Just forget it! They are lying since 2012.

There was plenty of time to release something, a single song for what is worth. They rerecorded Shadow of Your Love for God's sake.

There was never an album in the making for the first months of 2020, there was never a plan that got set back due to covid and let me tell you something: those GNR Selects are the most unpolished, amateur and shamefull material a band could ever release (learn something with Metallica, Radiohead, Pearl Jam).

I have to agree, with everything.

There was a time when news of Slash writing demos and recording guitar parts for Guns would have overloaded this place with traffic.  Now, thanks to fuck-face Fernando paired with Axl's inability to be forward thinking and get shit done, it's met with a collective "Meh." from the fanbase.  No one can be bothered to even pretend to give a fuck anymore, because we know it all means fuck all until they actually make it a reality.

Well done GNR, you pack of fucking morons. No one cares.

Someone leak The General and Zodiac so we can all move on with our damn lives and put this insufferable shit show to bed already. 

Don’t forget Seven! Lol

EDIT: and Soul Monster with vocals and Berlin with vocals! Those are the most important!

Really, anything from the vault during the Chi Dem recordings.

oh dear, sounds like you found the right excuse for no new music next year:(

Ah you can do both in one year, you just space it out correctly. Don't release both in the summer. Summer release, christmas release. 

Now, I'm not saying g they will... I have lost all hope for them.to do anything. When or IF something is ready then I'll hear about it, but I'm so far removed from searching for clues. Guessing from those comments that the album isn't done but they are "seriously looking" at doing something. Right track, but they are years behind.

It started off where anytime Slash mentioned new material it excited me (like him bringing his amps to Axl's place that one time) but I am realizing that we are at the point where even Slash's statements just don't bring much hope to me because ultimately Axl is still apparently the one calling the shots of when this material will actually see the light of day

The clip I heard from that soundcheck sure didn't seem like anything to get excited about. Maybe if Axl didn't sound like crap...

I really liked Duff's new bass intro and the new Slash licks over the top.... thought it had potential

All slash said was that he was jamming with axl and duff. No mention of new music, unless someone can post otherwise?.

I went ahead and listened to it. This is what he said: 

"I've been jamming with Duff, and I've been jamming with Axl, and I've been doing stuff like that; so we've been getting some work done that way. I'm basically just focusing on writing new music, recording demos and recording guitar stuff for Guns."

Just look above. That's clearly a mention of new music, isn't it?

Yeah, that’s the thing. Slash had a Guns album in ‘94... was likely close to another in ‘96... and now another in 2020. That’s what he does. 

The only thing standing in the way of a new GNR album...

Axl’s voice

Axl’s vocal melodies

Axl’s lyrics

Axl’s interest / inspiration / creative state / work ethic / drive

He doesn't specifically say new music in GnR though. He just says he's recording guitar stuff for Guns (if we're interpreting his quote literally).

What i never got, is...If Axl was out of lyrical creativity...which is absolutely ok...why didnt he bring back Izzy or any other writer for him? Its super difficult to write lyrics for CD stuff.

Agree!. 

Recording guitar stuff could mean anything. I dont know why, if they are putting together ideas for a new album why they cant say it. 🤷‍♂️. Yeah the media will ask if there is a date for release of new material, and they can say no, We are taking time with it. If metallica can be open and say yes we are working on new material, what cant GNR. This is almost 96 all over again.

I dont know why things with this band are so hard.

So what will axl cover for lyrics, trump or stephanie i wonder?.

I just hope izzy has some sort of lyrical input.

I'm not sure Izzy is going to be involved.
