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....."

we know for sure hardschool is done, right ?

How would we know that? Just because it’s been rehearsed doesn’t mean anything is ready for release. I mean, I’d love to be proven wrong :shrugs:

does it happen to play a new song live and not put it on the market ????? never, right ?

The song has 20 years, it's not new at all. The fact that they were going to play it live could be just a 'nod' to the hardcore fanbase, acknowledging us that they are aware of the leaks. That's all.

What you could assume, though, is that a potential new album will most likely feature Hardschool, because the big 3 have already said (one way or another) that CD stuff will be used.
But what you can't do, is assume that just because they were going to play Hardschool live, then a new album can be confirmed. We don't know that.

The idea that record stores not being open is contributing to a lack of new material is quaint, if not a little barmy. As is the idea that Covid has had any impact. 

Once these two things have been resolved, there will be a whole new raft of reasons you can guarantee. 

Yeah it’ll be something like...’oh in the post COVID environment no one wants to buy new music because there’s too much PTSD going on’ 😂

Valid point. Funny how they seem to think it's not the environment for new music but the perfect environment to announce the latest cash grab tour!

I'm so tired of this BS. I'm starting to believe we're not going to hear any new material until Axl passes. When he does, we're going to get a large tribute album with Sebastian Bach on vocals.

If everything is left to Team Brazil (in the event of Axl's sad passing), we won't hear shit. If Axl wasn't prepared to release it, they won't either. Unless they spend everything he leaves and need the cash, or Axl leaves owing the a record company something.

Bold of you to assume TB aren't hovering like vultures waiting to monetise the absolute shit out of the GNR vault when Axl pops his cloggs.

Listening to that version of Crash Diet highlights to me that the song really isn't that good. I'm glad it wasn't officially used. 

I agree.  I think fans only clambered for it simply because it was one of the few non-albums tracks out there in the Illusions era. Look at all the songs on the Unwanted Illusions album, Bring It Back Home, Sentimental Movie, Just Another Sunday. They are all total crap and had they actually been on the albums, the band would have been mocked for them. The only b-side they released was Shadow of your Love on the Live and Let Die single. Other than that, it was all album tracks, so sure, Crash Diet seems cool because it was "new" Guns N' Roses,, but it really is shit.

Smashing Pumpkins recently released a double album.

Yet another band that somehow has figured out how to release a record in today's environment.

Pumpkins now have two releases since their reunion.

Aren't they releasing a third early in the new year? A sequel of sorts to MatIS?

Yes, whilst this new SP album for the most part is dreadful, at least with the pumpkins we know that it won't be long until the next. Another great thing the pumpkins did is for their two massive and elite classic albums (siamese dream and mellon collie) they released the b sides and tracks that didn't make those albums the year after. picses iscariot and the aeroplane flies high. there are 6/7 songs on each of those albums that are easily as good as anything they did on their best works. Nirvana did something similar with incesticde. 

I think this is a great way for bands who never intend these songs to be official full release albums to get to fans, there must be 50 completed songs from 97-2007 that didnt make chinese. Plus all the songs allegedly written since, and all the songs written by the illusion era between 93-96. I know some ended up on slash's snakepit, but just release them. As proven, these albums do not tarnish the bands legacy in any way, and in fact enhance it with the true fans.

Not sure if you're joking, but just in case,  i'm pretty sure it was an Arkeen song lent to others like Wildside.

 

Shame !!! I didn't know. thx for that. It's a good song but Axl's version is much much better !!! So we can ask wikipedia to change what they said !!!

SP do have a bit of a habit of promising things that never actually happen though......but that doesn't matter as they always do SOMETHING. Whether the fans like it or not is up to personal taste and preference, and all part and parcel of most bands really. Some will like stuff, others won't, but there's always something to pay attention to. 

I'm one of those sorts that tries to buy everything released by bands I like. I can't say I've ever thought a bands weaker material has taken anything away from their better stuff.

I think Radiohead did something similar with In Rainbows Disc 2 etc. It's definitely a good way to keep up engagement etc. As well as to let fans in on some element of the creative process; to try and see why some songs maybe didn't work in the context of that particular album. 

I've always thought it was madness that Staircase was never included on the King of Limbs but I guess it's slightly too smooth perhaps compared to the glitchy atmospheric IDM on the main album.

Agreed on SP. I actually enjoyed their previous album, haven't got round to listening to their new one yet although the reviews and comments like the above don't give me much confidence but I'm sure I'll find something to like.

I guess I'm part of the minority who love it :D the synth pop/rock sound can be weird at first, but it really grows on you after a few listens. It's modern but it's not '' pushed'' modernity like in CD' s case. 

And Billy's melodies are top notch anyways.
