For years now, members of Guns N' Roses have expressed different opinions about when the band expects to begin recording a follow-up to 2008's Chinese Democracy. Guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal says he's confident that the group will make some new music once they get off the road.
"There's a lot of stuff [written], it's just a question of all of us organizing," he tells Rolling Stone. "We're still doing shows, and I think once we clear our schedule and focus more on new music, it'll happen. We just have little things on the back burner, just waiting for the right time for us to organize and make something new out of it."
If that isn't enough to assure you that GN'R's got new music on the way, guitarist Richard Fortus recently revealed to Noise11.com that frontman Axl Rose and company has "spent a lot of time in the studio" working on their seventh studio album and that "many of the songs have been completed."
Guns N' Roses will have some more time to work on new material next month. The final date of the group's world tour takes place on June 8, where they'll be performing a headlining set at the Governor’s Ball Festival in New York City.
