It’s been over a decade since Guns ‘N Roses’ last album and with the massive success of their Not in This Lifetime… Tour, fans have become more and more anxious to hear new material from them. When news broke out that there’s a possibility of a new record to be released sometime this year, we were skeptical. But recently, Slash gave an update and now, another band member confirmed that they’re working one something.
In an interview with radio DJ Eddie Trunk, Duff McKagan was asked about a Chinese Democracy follow-up and he said, “Oh it’s real.” Although there’s no definite plan yet, McKagan shared:
“But the fun part and the cool part about Guns N’ Roses is we don’t really talk about it, and what happens next just happens. It’s never been that band that there’s a direct schedule of how we do things.”
He also revealed what’s been keeping Axl Rose busy.
“I’ve heard some magnificent stuff that Axl [Rose] has — really cool stuff he’d been working on. So I’m excited about the possibilities with that, of course. I don’t mean to get anybody rabid. [A new GN’R album] will happen when it happens, that’s for sure.”
Having no set timeline isn’t exactly surprising when it comes to Guns ‘N Roses. After all, they have always liked taking their sweet time.
