Guns n’ Roses have revealed that they’re planning on releasing a new album.
The band, made up of Axl Rose, Slash, Richard Fortus, Duff McKagan, Frank Ferrer, Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese, have been working on some new material while on their current tour – but they’re still at the very early stages.
Guitarist Fortus told StageLeft, “We haven’t started recording anything, when I say that, as fas as in the studio doing an album.
“We’ve been recording a lot of stuff, just ideas, assembling ideas, but not going into a studio and actually tracking a new record.”

“It’s sort of too good not to happen at this point, that’s how I feel about it. This band is really a force right now, and I definitely hope that we do, and I think we’re all sort of counting on it, and we’re also planning on it.”
The album would be their first release since 2008’s Chinese Democracy, and the first to include both Slash and Duff McKagan since their 1993 record The Spaghetti Incident.
The news comes soon after the band rocked Slane Castle last month.
