Not buying it. Anyone can say “I know a guy who knows a guy” or whatever.

Nevertheless, thank you for sharing.

This, *insiders*......

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 think if they were planning on releasing something in August/September we would know about it by now. 

Also, not sure if a bunch of old dudes would be ok to enter a studio during the Pandemic.

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.

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'!

Doesn't mean they were wrong, however unlikely it is.

ETA:

Fernando redacted a statement of a release that would have fallen within that time frame. (Presumably changed due to COVID-19)

Guys, talked to my grandma today and although we didn't talk about GNR, in fact she has no idea what that even is, I could feel from her energy that the album is almost finished and ready to be released in September!

All aboard the hype traaaain!!!

No, I'm sure this is accurate insider from a fantastic source! 

How about this though. If the online guy who went to the barber and spoke to someone whose boyfriend saw the band in the studio and they told him the new album was supposed be out in July but is now out in August or September IS correct, I'll go and visit my Grandmother naked. If this doesn't happen, I'll bet anyone to do something similar? 

Bear in mind we're on August 7th here, and this information comes from on online guy who went to the barber and spoke to someone whose boyfriend saw the band in the studio and they told him the new album was supposed to be out in July but is now out in August or September before answering people.......

Have we lost our minds here??! Are we honestly giving any credence to this sort of nonsense?! You could probably search Twitter and find a hundred 'insiders' saying similar! 

We've had YEARS of this sort of thing!

Yes, years, and sometimes they end up being right too. Sometimes they are legit, and sometimes not, even so, a broken clock is right twice a day.

In this case, I heard something similar, but several months ago. What I heard was more or less what Fernando said (new album in 6 months or whatever) More specifically, I heard most of the new album will be re-worked stuff from the leaked village songs that were not on the first album. Must to my disappointment, I was told the current lineup will re-record everything with the exception of Axl's parts, (IIRC) which makes sense for a few different reasons.

The phrase 'throw enough shit against a wall some of it will stick' can also be applied......

Literally any old crap is a source to be taken seriously now. 

All together now, join in if you know the words...........'I'M JUST REPORTING WHAT I HEARD' and the chorus 'PLAAAAANS CHANGED'.

That would be, to me, the worst case scenario...and I think it's very, very likely that this is what we'll get, if anything at all.

Why? Because it would be impossible that anyone in the band would have a real connection or emotion to that music. Axl vocals from over 10 years ago? What a turn off. Slash and Duff playing something that somehow fits over other people's stuff from years and years ago? Meh.

If they really do it like this it will be shit, 100%.
