@Blackstar he did say at the China Exchange interview in 2016 that he wished the band would’ve just stuck to forming their own Indy label back in the day, rather than signing to a major label. So you might be right.

Wishful thinking on my part, but it’d be cool if he was planning to buy back the masters to the ChiDem leftovers from UMG so that he could use those for his own solo album instead, while GnR itself just focuses primarily on new music.

In all honesty tho, he’s probably just starting his own clothing label or something, and the music/ other audio/ video parts of the trademark are just him covering all his bases.

Imagine Ashba as his clothing brand consultant.

I don't think he's doing a solo record. He can barely get music out under GnR, why would he do it solo?

Yeah apparently Fernando confirmed on reddit that the new trademarks are “just standard paperwork” or some shit. Nothing more than that.

The change has already been happening, because it's inevitable, and whatever is happening now is not sustainable. The thing is, it doesn't happen over night; nothing of such nature does... 

Nonsense, the cream always rises to the top. Stop with the delusional dreams of utopia.

It's called evolution. You either learn from your mistakes, or you get extinct. Yeah, currently it looks like the latter, but this is a long run.

I just realized something...

When I asked fernando the other day on reddit if this GH vinyl was planned before the pandemic, he confirmed that it was.

That alone makes me doubt even more that a new album was ever planned for this year. Why would they release a new album and GH on vinyl so close together, afterall?

Then again, AFD was reissued just a month or two before ChiDem finally came out. So what do I know?

The only reason I can think they would be released close together is any new material would definitely see the GH get a boost sales wise so they would want GH out there in as many mediums as possible to maximise revenue streams.

I have seen literally nothing that suggests to me a new album was ever planned for this year. 

OK, surprises happen etc, but in the absence of any evidence whatsoever that a release was scheduled, I've got to go with the pragmatism here!

I had a colonoscopy the other day, and while the doctor was in me, he interjected: "Actually, this reminds me of Team Brazil, the GNR management, do you know them? Well, and my nurse told me that her grandmother from the father’s side overheard her neighbour talking with the postman, who said that his distant cousin from Sao Paulo likes this dog, you know, whose owner had this dream the other day that he heard his daughter calling him and telling him she’d overheard someone playing the SCOM riff in some studio as she was walking by. And then she received a mysterious message that the new album would be released in August, and one of the songs (with Izzy and Steven guesting), called The Admiral, will be featured in the upcoming game Half-Life 3."
So it’s happening, folks!

I wouldn’t be shocked if some kind of a release with new music was planned for this year. Seriously. They did rehearse Hard School in Hollywood and Slash has been quoted as saying he’s been recording. I don’t know if it would have been an album, an EP or even just a single, but they know they have to put something new out. 
 

It just sucks that we can’t get any real info. And no, I don’t blame TB for the lack of concrete info. The way they communicate is arrogant and unprofessional, but it’s been that way for years and will never change. All of this is on Axl. He lives inside his own head and surrounds himself with enablers.

They are planning on a release in September and we do know about it. GH vinyl!

As much as I learned to dislike Fernandont, in the end it's "the big three" we should look at. But maybe Duff will enlighten us about his punk roots one more time soon?

From instagram. Take it for what it’s worth but I did have a suspicion that the GH vinyl reissue might be to fund promotion for the new record.

He/she is saying they met someone in a barbershop whose boyfriend thought he saw them in a studio? 

And you're asking if it's 'legit'?! Come on boy! 

I mean seriously, we may just as well ask some guy in a bar if he has info! This has got to be a low for 'insider info'!
