Guns N' Roses guitarist says the band will try to record a new album in 2019

Rock News 17/12/2018

Could it be? After all these years, we could be getting a new Guns N' Roses album recorded next year.

Loudwire reports that GNR guitarist Richard Fortus revealed in a new interview that making a new album is something the band is going to try.

"We're going to try and do another record and get it out soon," Fortus told Favazz of St. Louis' KSHE95, after he was asked about the possibility of a new GNR record. "How could it not be [great]? The band is so great right now."

The host pressed for more details, specifically how quickly they could get an album turned around for release.

I think it will happen faster than you think. I sure hope it happens faster than you think.

When asked if it would happen before the end of 2019:

We're hoping to get one out very soon.

Hmmmmm. Interesting. You can listen to the full chat in the below Soundcloud recording.

Earlier this year, Slash told Classic Rock Magazine:

Now that we've mended fences and gotten back together and done this, we're going to keep it together.

Axl's got a ton of shit that he recorded already, so we're just 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.

We'll see what happens.

So who bloody knows. We'd be over the fucking moon if Gunners released a new album with as many of the original members, but we're also not going to get our hopes up - this is the same band that cockteased the release of Chinese Democracy for over 10 years. So it might be worth taking this info and quotes with a grain of salt.

But we can hope!
