Published Jun 05, 2014Just the other day, we were saying that Axl Rose releases new music with Guns N' Roses at a snail's pace. Well, we may have spoken too soon, since the group apparently have two new records in the can.
Speaking with Revolver, Rose revealed that both of the albums are connected to 2008's Chinese Democracy (which infamously came out a whopping 17 years after its predecessor). One is a remix album, while one is a sequel.
"We recorded a lot of things before Chinese was out," Rose revealed. "We've worked more on some of those things and we've written a few new things. But basically, we have what I call kind of the second half of Chinese. That's already recorded. And then we have a remix album made of the songs from Chinese. That's been done for a while, too."
Since the albums are done, when can fans expect to hear them? Well, the band are currently at the tail end of a residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, but they will begin plotting their next move once that ends on June 7.
"After Vegas, we're going to start looking very seriously at what we're doing in that regard," Rose said.
Of course, these promises are extremely unspecific, so we aren't going to be holding out breath for these. Still, GN'R fans can be encouraged by the likelihood that Chinese Democracy's sequel might not take quite as long as the original to arrive.
In the meantime, the band will be releasing their concert film Appetite for Democracy 3D: Live from the Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas, which arrives July 1 on Blu-ray and DVD through UMe.
