Guns N’ Roses’ last album release was in 2008, but Chinese Democracy performed dismally when compared to their other releases. Slash and McKagan leaving the band in the mid 90’s crippled Guns N’ Roses’ creative department. However, the two ex-GNR musicians reinstated their membership and rejoined the band in 2016. There have been rumors floating around about an album plan, and Slash confirmed it, saying they’ll start working on it after their October tour.
In an interview with Chile’s Futuro 88.9FM, Slash laid out his itinerary for the year, stating his tour series with The Conspirators, which would last till August. Slash mentioned the tour will cover some parts in South America, The United States, Canada, and Europe. Afterwards, the lead guitarist will rendezvous with Guns N’ Roses, and announced the band’s small tour on the month of October.
The top-hat loving guitarist then proceeded to reveal his participation on two new records, one for Guns N’ Roses, and another one for his current affiliation, Myles Kennedy and The Conspirator’s album, Living The Dream. “There’s been so much talk about this [new] Guns N’ Roses record, which we haven’t actually done anything with, so we’re gonna sort of focus on that. And then The Conspirators will be [regrouping] some time coming up, depending on what Guns N’ Roses is doing. But I’ve already started putting together material for the new Conspirators record,” Slash explaining his upcoming commitments.
Back in February, Slash had already fanned the flames by teasing material for the upcoming GNR album, but has admitted there is no concrete plan to execute as of yet. Guns N’ Roses’ first show for the year was announced last week, after news broke of the band headlining the 2019 Louder Than Life Festival.
