The "New Album" Thread - Susan McKagan says album is coming,"Universal database implies new album is coming because the numbers between Hard Skool and Absurd are missing"?

I was just thinking about how we all used to do that here years ago with Chinese Democracy.  Daily checks on the Geffen website etc. There was a date on their website (I don’t remember what) that we counted down the days until it was here and then it came and went without incident.

But I’ve taught myself to keep the faith. I thought CD would never be released and then suddenly there was a tour in 2006, non stop Axl interviews and eventually a new album.

I thought they’d never tour again then suddenly Slash & Duff were back in the band and they were headlining Coachella.

There will be an album.

The time lapse between paragraph 2 & 3, was 9 years. At this rate axl could be KOHD............ And that song will last longer than the current live version 😂

From Sp1at on Gnrevolution: 

The ISRC code for Absurd is USUG12103950, and the ISRC code for Hard Skool is USUG12103961.

Sometimes for albums, the codes run as a numerical sequence (I think this happened with CD and other GN'R releases), so this could imply that an entire album has been handed over, and that Hard Skool is 11 tracks after Absurd on the album. Nothing is registered on the numbers in between, but there are other tracks for other artists before and after these codes.

Of course, it might mean nothing

Interesting, 11 tracks seems a little light for a GN'R album, considering the amount of material they have amassed. Unless a few codes after Hard Skool are not registered to anything before they run into the other artists. Absurd isn't a bad opener.

The order in which the songs were uploaded to the IRSC database don't necessarily mean to be the album order.

Just checked and yes, between USUG12103950 (Absurd) and USUG12103961 (Hard Skool) it's all in blank. But also between HS and USUG12103973. That's 23 spots between Absurd and the first result after Hard Skool.

Maybe Hardschool Is not the last track, we only know at this point Hardskool and Absurd, that's the 2 Codes we know, but maybe there are 3 or 4 more tracks after Hardschool, or am I Wrong?

Sounds like a double album! :D

Putting Silkworms as an opener would be the biggest FY to all these so-called casual fans that made them multi-millionaires by repeatedly buying tickets (and merch) to hear SCOM and the likes.

Why? It's "the song that should be heard." An album opener is the perfect spot! 😉

It would only be half as bad as closing the Illusions with My World.

Why should anyone feel insulted by what a band decides to release, or even less the order of tracks?

How about a re-recording of My World featuring new parts from Buckethead (+2db) and Brain (-1db) performed in different decades in different studios in different eras of the band?!

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I’m sure a new album will happen eventually but let’s not try to look into stuff like this, it probably means nothing. I’d expect another single or two in a few years before an album, there’s just no proof to say an album is actually on the way.

I'm not even sure if Bucket and Brain could save that song, unless of course it was extended and re-recorded with '99 Axl vocals.

Good shout on the '99 vocals! Perhaps if there was a drum arrangement from Josh Freese, but played by Brain mostly, with kick drum and additional cymbals by Frank, then that would hit the spot!?

I had a quick look at the ISRC Handbook

It is strongly recommended that Designation Codes [=the last five digits] should be assigned sequentially within the range provided, and care should be taken to ensure that the same Designation Codes are never re-used within one calendar year.

I think there may really be something here, ie. that an album exists. Of course, it doesn't mean much regarding a release date.

Yeah, it ain’t nothing. 11 rather than, say, 73 numerical differences is a little coincidental. 

Someone call Scotland Yard!! 🕵️

(Also, I fucking called it that Absurd would probably be the 1st track.)

Even 23 (including the 12 blank codes between Hard Skool and the next release) is not far-fetched. It could include live bonus tracks like the "b-sides" on the HS CD and vinyl.

Exactly. Again, it’s the best piece of evidence we have that a larger release is slated.

Leading up to Chi Dem 2008 a “surprise” album release was a desperate, pie in the sky, idea/hope fans would throw around when things seemed hopeless. Now, in 2021, in the digital age it’s pretty much a given that’s what will ultimately happen. That works in our favor with this finding exceptionally well. 👌🏻

Fuck I’m excited. Maybe this little secret is why Axl was so damn happy this past tour.
