they haven't promised anything though. No release date. Of course it is long overdue, but if you're a fan of this band in 2020 it's kinda up to you to kinda not expect anything which is sad but logical knowing how Axl rolls. I totally expect Gn'R to tour as soon as it's possible with no new music released. Maybe they'll play Hard School or some shit.

Well I expect that too......but loads of people on here and elsewhere duly believe that when the tour starts, new music can come. It's mentioned regularly here. 

And who can blame those people? It's what they've been led to believe by comments such as 'within 6 months' 'now isn't the time for new music' and comments made about needing to tour (apologies I don't have the exact quotes to hand, but I'm sure someone does). Those people, the optimists out there, are going to be very pissed off. Far more than the likes of you and I who fully expect no new music. 

That's my point really- boy are they going to get it in the neck if they don't deliver now!

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....." 

Axl is close to 60 Reunion is now over 4 years old The last unheard new song was played in 2006 The last studio album was in 2008 The last new song before that in 1999 Every s

I'd be fully satisfied (probably more so than an official album release with the current lineup) if a 2006-2014 "CD2" leaked.

Ill take any material TBH. I also want CD2 as it is but do think the big guns will be mined and used in whatever we eventually get. I have no doubt in time the original stuff as intended will surface.....and the battles over which version is better will rage on!

I do think that having Fortus (as a highly regarded session player) and Melissa (as someone who is clearly talented in music and can sing very well) in the mix could open up some possibilities for ‘the big 3’ in terms of executing their ideas. Maybe they will throw in a few bits here and there too - who knows.

I know some folk just can’t take to them and that’s cool. Until we hear music it’s difficult to say one way or the other!

actually I'm very optimistic when it comes to new Guns music, but it's not like Axl said anything remotely close to 'within 6 months' so I think we'll hear a new official release in the future, but I believe it's going to be a long process to complete it so I don't think it's realistic to expect a new album in 2021.

Gn'R fans have every right to look at Axl's Gn'R and expect it to turn into a super prolific band based on shit Fernando says or anyone in the band that is not Axl, but the truth is I don't think anyone has any real knowledge except Axl when it comes to 'when'.

And just as an example: they can complete 90% of the new album and it still could take years from that point in time so until Axl at least starts talking about studio progress, I really don't think there's anything to get excited about other than old unreleased tunes played live by the current line up.

Yup - just tell the truth so we all know what the script is either way.

that's what normal bands do. Axl seems to take a more corporate approach of saying nothing. That way, there is less risk and what if Axl wants to release another Guns album but he doesn't want to promise anything cause last time he did that it wasn't pretty and didn't really work for him.

Personally, I’m basing my theory that the record could be released prior to the fall dates (I’m not very convinced the summer ones will happen) on anything but what Merchnando said. It’s more about rumours, tidbits, and conjunctions – like when someone here said they’ve been “waiting for Axl” (could mean nothing, of course), but mainly the fact Slash is doing SMKC again – which would suggest his work for the album is done; also the “all new show” ads (could be just a schtick), and the fact they now have loads of time without being able to make time-based excuses (“they’ve been touring all the time”). 
However, I’m not betting anything on it and definitely won’t be angry if it doesn’t happen. I could hardly be surprised. It’s just that within the upcoming year’s time, it would look more logical and promising than ever. We’ve been through this, yes. But this time, the stars could be aligned a bit more favourably.

True - but getting comments from Fernando about ‘new music in 6 months’ and ‘live NITL release’ due by year end and then nothing appearing to happen.....THAT’S the frustration. I’d almost appreciate complete radio silence until something absolute was ready to go.

I feel the same about all of that......but my optimism for new music has been totally eroded now sadly. 

I don't think we're remotely close to it, but that we could see a 'vault' release in 10-20 years time.

I honestly believed we would hear one new GNR song before vaccines rolls out, and i'm not even sarcastic this time around.

Russia also starts vaccination next week. Will USA announce something perhaps tomorrow? =)

Trump filing a new lawsuit maybe?

In the months leading to the 2008 album, there were several people who were loosely tied with the industry saying they were hearing about some movement with the new album coming out. Back then there seemed to be more interest in GN'R and that album than the current upcoming one, so perhaps even if there was a release on the horizon, they have kept it from being known.

Here in NJ, USA, the vaccine is supposed to start rolling out by Christmas. They are starting with healthcare workers and the elderly who  are in nursing homes.

Well now that the vaccine is weeks away from its initial distribution GNR can really now officially start to think about possibly beginning to consider how to embark on preparing to hit the ground floor and consolidate all their ideas together and eventually at some point maybe recording and completing an album for a hypothetical possible eventual definitive probable in the not-so-distant future or then maybe not in this lifetime but some other point in space and time release of an album under the GNR namesake. 

Next year is ebola.... so we have to wait more.

I understand a 3 hour meeting has been scheduled. The band is apparently shitting bricks having been made aware of the vaccine as it may actually have to release something

Finland begins vaccination most likely within a month. Officials now believe we are clear by spring/summer 2021. 

Same people who told us earlier that this will take couple of years and vaccination is likely to begin fall 2021 now gives us something positive, instead of frightening us every f'n day...

so what we know for sure at the page 315 is that Axl have the unstrumental album of GNR for 6 month now, right ?

Nope. We don't know anything for sure. We don't know if a single note has been recorded. 

Speculation and vague rumour is all we have.
