Hard Skool is coming!


Recommended Posts

Based on nothing, I think we'll see Hard Skool with a somewhat near future 7" vinyl release with Absurd. If they have an album laying around... it could/would be promoted as 2 tracks off the upcoming album slated for Summer 2022(or whenever?). Now, they could slap something random on the other side of Absurd like a graphic or live track, but it seems reasonable to do Hard Skool/Absurd as a 7" single.

As a band, if that is what they have laying around, they are probably not in a big hurry to let that known. Dropping when they feel like it makes the most sense for future plans is clearly the way to go. Sound checking a song and a fan supposedly hearing it from Axl doesn't mean anything as far as us seeing it this calendar year. Wouldnt it logically make sense to drop it before the start of a new tour run after covid clears up some? 

I definitely think it's time for us all to take a deep breath and not expect anything until 2022.

You think Axl would want the band to rework a song he doesn't like, and then release it as a single? ..just no

Yes.

I think that is more than preferable over actually writing/recording a new song.

IMO - it was either HardSkool or Perhaps, but he got nervous and changed it to Silkworms with the perfect excuse of 'it's obviously just a bit of fun' - which he actually used when people rightfully pointed out it was terrible.

If the fan backstage and tik tok videos and stories on IG are part of a "buzz" then it makes sense for them to release the single at the end of the tour and promotite afterwards.  We have 6 shows to go, lets wait and see!

I hate that we’re essentially waiting for a night where Axl believes singing this song will not categorically kill him. Nice contingency there. 😳

Yeah I feel the same. Also I wonder how it’s gonna work after they released it or played live for the first time.. will they only play it every third or fourth show when Axl feels ready to sing it?

I’ve been wondering this as well. Will they be expected to play it live at every show from now on once it’s out? Can Axl even pull that off? Maybe they plan to release it near the very end of this tour, play it at the two Hollywood FL shows, and then hope everyone forgets it by the time they return in June 2022.

I genuinely dont know about Hard Skool coming out soon. It's too hard to even guess, look at the Absurd week. Just really came from nowhere over a few days. There's no way of guessing. 

Knowing them it'll probably be a new version of OMG 

I’ll take it.

As much as I want to believe in HS this week, I bet it’s just because they read what’s floating around on google and not because they were actually sent or know anything. Im not letting Lucy trick me with that football again.

I will see them in Italy next July, but I have to admit that I hope to have HS before that concert. Maybe it might make sense to play it in Florida, release it and get the new album out before the European leg. It would create a fair amount of hype even now about those shows.

Thought I would throw a scenario out there.  Maybe they play it St Paul tomorrow night. Their last show was in Milwaukee and that was an outdoor show. It's a 5 hour drive from Milwaukee to the Twin Cites. Del posted a photo that was tagged Minneapolis, MN yesterday on Instagram. I would be pretty convinced they are all already in town. With the show at the Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday, they could rehearse the song with Axl singing without too much worry that it would be recorded and sent out on the internet --with Axl singing.  With 3 days in the Twin Cites before the show maybe this gives them that opportunity to actually fully (w/Axl) rehearse the song without too much "interference," or worry that its leaked.

Personally what they should do is just rehearse the song anywhere and run everything strictly through IEM's. The drums would be the only thing that would be heard to anyone NOT wearing the IEM's. One of my bands used to rehearse that way.

I think they've done that too, like when Axl rehearsed with them before Hershey.

I've never seen such a fuss and drama over a band playing a song in my life! 

You make a fair point! It is a bit of a joke this. Especially when a lot of fans have already heard previous iterations of the same bloody track. Possibly they are still finalising the subbass and tambourine mixes!

I know! I threw that out there to throw some more gas on the fire. Once it is played, if it is played, there will be at least a 30 page thread on how it was sung, the guitar parts, drums etc.

He plays you could be mine every night. They did coma for 4 years straight, after saying in his prime it was too hard to sing. He's not not singing it because he doesn't think he can pull it off. I don't know the reason it's not been played yet, but it's clearly nothing to do with axl worrying about singing it live. Half the GnR catalogue are tougher to sing. and he's shown he has no issue singing it mickey style if need be.

Oh, for sure! 

It's like getting blood from a stone getting a 'new' song from this band.

When you actually sit back and think about the discussion and drama around it, compared to virtually every other band on the planet, it's even more crackers.

I am in complete agreement with you! I loved it when Slash said something along the lines of: we're just working out how to release an album. Perhaps get Axl to focus on working out how not to have most it of leaked beforehand!
