Slash says Guns N ‘Roses has yet to write new material
Slash offered an update on Guns N ‘Roses working on some new music, and it looks like fans just need a little patience before you hear anything new.
In a new interview, Slash said of the new music, “As far as the new Guns go, we haven’t even gotten to that point of really sitting down and writing. We did a lot of material that kind of sat there for a while. It will therefore be a concentrated effort in itself. “
GN’R’s new music has been a priority ever since Slash and Duff McKagan joined the band and embarked on their Not in this life to visit. The band released two tracks – “Absurd” and “Hard School” – but both tracks were reworking of material from the band’s coffers.
In May 2019, Slash said during an appearance on Talkin ‘Rock with Meltdown, “When we have finished the tour [GN’R’s select festival dates] in the fall, then we’ll start working on what will be the next Guns album… the thing is we haven’t done anything yet, and i don’t want to say anything like “oh yeah…” you know how did people promote shit and lie through their teeth? I just wanted to be honest about it, and so there really was no idea what we were going to do at this point, but at this point I know we’re going to do this run, and we’ve already started to work on stuff. So this is it. “
On April 30, fans started hoping for new music when Duff’s wife, Susan Holmes McKagan, said in an episode of the GN’R podcast Appetite for distortion, “I will say that GN’R has worked meticulously on new killer things, and I can’t say much, but I’ve heard bits and pieces and it’s pretty epic. I want to broadcast good news, but not detailed news, I guess. “
In July 2020, Slash said in an interview with Sweetwater: “I’ve been pretty much a homebody, but I’ve been back and forth between my home studio and writing and recording a lot on my own. . I jam with Duff and jam with Axl, and I did stuff like that, so we did work that way. I mainly focus on writing new music, recording demos and recording guitars for Guns and so on.
So once again the fans really need a little patience (yeah.) In the meantime, Slash has returned to his solo work and just released a new track with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators last week titled “The River Is Rising” from their new album. 4.
