Slash Has Confirmed That A New Guns N’ Roses Album Is In The Works

Guitar legend Slash says that the band have material for a new Guns N’ Roses record.

We’ve been hearing for the past year or so that Guns N’ Roses are chipping away at fresh material – and now legendary guitarist Slash has revealed that a new album is indeed in the works.

Speaking to TVK’s Rock City, the shredder says: “Axl [Rose, vocals], Duff [McKagan, bass], myself and Richard [Fortus, guitar] have all talked about… there’s material and stuff going on already for a new record.

“It’s just, with Guns N’ Roses, you don’t go, ‘Oh, there’s a plan, and it’s gonna be like this,’ because that’s not how it works.

“Basically, the only real answer to give is we’re hoping to put a new record out, and we’ll just see what happens when it happens.”

So, while there’s no real timeframe or anything yet regarding the follow-up to 2008’s Chinese Democracy, that’s definitely more than enough information to keep us going for now.

Last August, Slash had stated that frontman Axl has “a ton of shit that he recorded lately”.

We’re going to get in there and just start getting into that thing, and then if we do a record and then do a tour, I could see that cycle going on endlessly,” he said.

Amazing. Check out Slash’s latest interview below.

While we await more info, here’s both sides of the “should GN’R make new music?” debate. Where do you stand?
