I like the idea of being on my death bed, saying "just refresh that page one more time for me....I'm pretty sure that insider was full of shit, but I want to be totally sure....."

OK, so now Fernando is talking about a new Blu Ray release - this was also rumored before christmas last year to kick off into the new year together with a new EP.

I hope this is part of the plan still - this way they can wait with the full album until they are touring again

Lol

Use Your Illusions 1991

Axl came out with a new album in 2008 I think with fake gnr.

17 years.....

So next album coming in 2025

What a joke.  When CD dropped in ‘08, I never thought in my wildest dreams that we’d be waiting a minimum of TWELVE years for another album.  I thought the guy finally got comfortable releasing music.  Nope.

These are the same three guys, though. So, 1987 - 1988 - 1991. 

In my math, that means 2021 (no way anything is coming this year) - 2022 - 2025. Hell yeah, it's absolutely real!  rock4 :D

They’re all pushing 60, the longer they wait to do anything new, the worse Axl will sound, and they’ll just be a bunch of old grandpas up there, trying to play rock star... 

Besides, and who knows, with how much these guys punished their bodies in their youth, any one of them could drop dead anytime as well. You’d think they’d really take advantage and try to work their asses off at getting this together now.

Of course, I could be mistaken about all this, and they release a kick ass new album that shuts me and everyone up. 
But the history of this band tells me we won’t get anything, and management will just keep feeding us lies and excuses, and that nothing ever comes to fruition

Seriously.. This whole thing reunion was already 10 years too late and 4 /2 years have passed since then.. I haven't been a fan of Axl's music or voice in a very long time... Hard to see them releasing anything good at this point.. Especially with this lineup.... I could care less if they release anything at this point.. I would rather them bust into the vaults and release a set of Blu Rays from the Golden years with multiple live shows and whatever other footage they can scrape up. .. Kind of like KISS did with KISSOLOGY.  Live shows,  Commercials, TV apprearances etc....

As a new fan I have been going through past files to become familiar with the group.  Now if I had to go to a court of law to give my opinion, based on what I have read and current circumstances, as to whether new music was going to be released or not I would have to give a resounding NOT.   Obviously I hope I am wrong but I will be greatly suprised if they do.

That would be nice, but...it's the same fucking songs over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again!!

I agree 100% as much as I love those tunes I'm starting to get tired of hearing them. I'd love something new even though I know it won't be as good as the 90's output I'd still take anything.

You are lucky to be a new fan, those many many years and false starts we’re a killer from like 1999 to 2008, although now seems worse somehow

yes I can imagine the utter frustration.  I wonder if it seems worse this time as they are getting older and as a consequence running out of time before they retire etc

I think there's one more album to come... but the timeline on that? Who knows. Could be next year, could be posthumously released! but there's at least one more GNR record.  In most peoples opinions the record is comically late. I maintain interest in the idea of a new album, bu simply not caring😄 

I think the history shows that eventually it will happen, but it will take a lot of time. The only change that someone could point to in recent years to suggest anything coming next year or sooner is the fact that Axl turned a corner with professionalism in terms of playing on time and not acting like a child... the other thing is, on the most recent date he played his voice wasn't completely shit... so! Maybe he was singing in a recording studio during the downtime. There's a lot of maybe's  😄

Just listened to Frank’s interview with Eddie Trunk who asked him about new GNR music.

’Sooner than later’ was the best he could offer.

That will age well over the coming years.

Reminds of fortus who got asked about the status of new music from 2012 to 14.

I dont know why they didnt put an extra 1 or 2 new songs on the greatest hits just to maintain a leve l of interest. The blue ray should have been done last year. To late with this band.

I guess the year 2035 is sooner than 2055 so Frank could technically still be right lol

I'm not optimistic, but the label could move a lot more copies of the Greatest Hits on vinyl if there was a hidden new track on one of the sides.

Or they could tell people to play the records backwards, and every song will sound as if it was something new.

He's got demos, it's not fully recorded yet. Also Myles is probably not in LA with them right now, it would be just Slash Todd Brent and Frank working on arrangements and stuff then Myles will bring his lyrics and lay those down.

He just posted on IG that tracking starts tommorow for his solo album. Weird time that SMKC are recording simultaneously. Might just be some soundtrack stuff or whatever and not full record for SMKC, I mean there's also that Rocket Man Cover they did that never came out, so wouldn't be the first time.

There was an excitement about what was to come, when oh my god dropped on the end of days soundtrack in 1999 it felt like A new album was right around the corner. How wrong we were.  
Back then new gnr had a real mystique about the band. And then it took another 9 years for the album to drop, most members had been replaced and it didn’t live up to the hype. 
I still didn’t want to see Axl give up on it but as soon as he had b grade musicians joining and was playing a Vegas residency it felt like Axl had given up and a reunion was inevitable.  So those leaks recently are probably the closest we will ever get to Axls true vision of what should have come out in around 2000-02 ....sad really

As I said, Slash Todd Brent and Frank are probably working on ideas and arrangements right now then Myles will join in later. It's definitely full record, that's been the plan all along. I don't think they're laying down tracks for real yet, just doing pre-production.
