Guns n' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus has told Noise11 that the band is nearly done recording the follow-up to 2008's Chinese Democracy. The band have reportedly completed many songs for the new album during a recent studio visit. However, Fortus did say that the album probably wouldn't be released this year, but maybe during 2014.
If we do get a new Guns n' Roses album in 2014 the waiting time between albums will be short, compared to the 15 years that went between Guns n' Roses punk rock cover album The Spaghetti Incident? and Chinese Democracy. Singer Axl Rose is the only remaining original member of Guns n' Roses, with keyboardist Dizzy Reed being the only other member left from the band's heyday around the time when they released their Use Your Illusion I and II albums.
