In a recent interview with KSHE 95, GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Richard Fortus shared an update on the band’s new album, which would mark the group’s seventh studio record and the follow-up to 2008’s Chinese Democracy.
He said: “The tour is done. Three years, done… We are going to try to do another record and get it out soon. We’re hoping to get one out very soon. It will happen faster than you think. How could it not be good? The band’s so great right now.”
Fortus added that “it could definitely happen” for new album to be out by the end of 2019.
He also pointed out the band has no plans to tour until the new album is ready, saying: “Slash is busy. We’re not going to do any more dates for a little bit. It depends on whether or not we have a new record out. If we have something out, we can tour. I think Axl has got a lot to write about.”
