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"?

Some top level Columbo stuff here! 

Good work. 

Honestly, if Fernando chimed in saying they plan to drop a full album in November, this would still be a better indicator of that being the case. 😏

I think this also means multiple versions with lotsa B-side or maybe more live stuff. Looking at what they did with Hard Skool, that seems to be an attractive option for them in terms of physical release(s) down the road.

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. 

It would also be a huge FY to any fan who had been patiently waiting for a new album with some good songs.

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

It's horrendously insulting to release a 'new' song that he knows the fanbase already hates, simply because he couldn't be bothered to record any new vocals, but it's like Stockholm Syndrome here.  The expectation is so low you are grateful for a 20 year old throwaway and all is forgiven.

Silkworms was not a throwaway, to Axl at least. Maybe in the eyes of fans, which is fair, but Axl played it live 4 times in 2001 and was always pretty excited about it, and said he wanted to release it as a single many times. I don’t think it was a throwaway in his eyes.

So I took the time to look up all the codes for Chinese Democracy as a reference 

Chinese Democracy - USUM70842892

Shackler’s Revenge - USUM70842907

Better - USUM70842891

Street of Dreams - USUM70842909

If the World - USUM70842903

There Was a Time - USUM70842910

Catcher in the Rye - USUM70842912

Scraped - USUM70842913

Riad N the Bedouins - USUM70842906

Sorry - USUM70842908

I.R.S. - USUM70842902

Madagascar - USUM70842904

This I Love - USUM70842911

Prostitute - USUM70842905

So all the codes are within a specific range together, which could be a good sign for a new album with HS and Absurd imo but who knows. One thing I’ve noticed tho is they are definitely not in order and there are missing numbers so it’s not confirmed that there’s an album with 11 tracks separating the songs

Glancing at this, it seems they’re all part of the same consecutive batch, no?

If that’s the case, then we’re like still onto something.

It could definitely be something for sure. It could also maybe just be that they’re on the same “EP” and that’s the only reason. We’ll have to see what codes the live tracks get to get a better idea I think

Yeah, I'm pretty sure he even said that it was going to be on the next album at one point when asked, and that was quite a bit after CD released if I recall correctly. I doubt any of us believed it when he said it but he's been pretty consistent in that regard.

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

Ha, I’d say the other way round, but ok.

Come on dude, it sounds like the good ole "the band doesn’t owe you anything". I mean, you don’t have to always defend them like we’re at htgth. Look at it from those casuals’ p. o. v. They’d been put off by whatever Axl was doing during all those "Nu" years, which – as far as they're concerned – were years when GN’R didn’t exist; then they heard the wonderful news, finally saw those two or three together on one stage, nicely standing next to each other; and having expected some first good rocker, some indicator this is the real deal, they got slapped in the face with Silkworms (I don’t literally hate the tune, the lyrics are quirky, I just think this would be the last song to go for out of all the shelf stuff) – and not only as the first single, but also as the heavily expected, prayed for reunion/comeback album opener? 
I’m telling you, they’d be quite annoyed. 
And from the musical point of view, Absurd would be a terrible opener anyway.

Good on you! To each their own, after all.

You are essentially like a dude who goes to a Chocolate Ice cream forum(s) to simply remind everyone how much you hate Chocolate Icecream.

You are self-aware enough to see that, right? 😳

I'm like a dude who goes to the forum of a company who made chocolate ice cream ten years ago, who would love to have it again but knows the recipe is lost, and gets annoyed when the manufacturers pretend that they are going to make some more.
