GUNS N’ ROSES Have Been Working On “Killer Stuff”
Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan’s wife Susan Holmes McKagan was recently interviewed on the “Appetite for Distortion” podcast and was asked about whether the band was working on a new album, a follow up to 2008’s “Chinese Democracy”. She revealed:
“I will say GN’R have been working fastidiously on killer new stuff. And I can’t say much, but I’ve heard bits and bobs and it’s pretty epic. I do wanna spread the good news, but not detailed news, I guess.”
The classic lineup of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan haven’t released original material since 1991’s “Use Your Illusion” records and their last release together was 1993’s covers album “The Spaghetti Incident?”
Slash was recently interviewed by Sirius XM host Eddie Trunk last fall and discussed whether new Guns N’ Roses music was planned and he said
“I think at the end of the day, everybody wants to have a full album released. I don’t think that’s really changed all that much. But there’s a different way of putting stuff out initially nowadays more so than… I mean, there’s always been the single, but now you sort of look at that preliminary release a little bit differently now. All things considered, it’s like the Wild West out there; there is no formula for any of it. [Laughs] I haven’t seen any routine kind of thing that works. I mean, you can do any one of a million different things to releasing a record. But at the end of the day, I think that we will ultimately release a full album.”
The “Not in This Lifetime Tour” has been never ending for the past four years and giving the band the third highest grossing tour of all time. The band had to reschedule there winter dates in south america to this fall.
