Guns N’ Roses guitarist Richard Fortus said new music from the band was in the works back in December. Now the musician is also revealing a timeline for when work will start on a new GNR album.
Said Fortus: “Slash is on tour right now. Once he gets back from that, we’re gonna get some more recording done and hopefully get an album out soon. And then we’ll get back to touring.” Slash released the Living the Dream album with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators last year, and they currently have dates booked through August 13.
Guns N’ Roses completed the “Not in This Lifetime” tour last year, and the tour quickly became one of the most successful tours of all-time. The tour found Axl Rose reuniting with Slash and Duff McKagan, with Fortus on guitar, keyboardist Dizzy Reed, drummer Frank Ferrer and multi-instrumentalist Melissa Reese.
The band’s last album was 2008’s Chinese Democracy.
