Another week, another new tidbit about Guns N’ Roses releasing new music.  This time, however, the update is coming from inside the house, so to speak.

Guitarist Richard Fortus gave an interview to KSHE 95 and while he was playing it coy, he was still very optimistic about new GN’R music saying, “I think it’ll happen faster than you think.”  Fortus also didn’t rule out the possibility of a new song being released in 2019.

Of course, like all things GN’R, we’ll have to wait and see.  If the band does release new music, it’ll be very interesting to see how they’ll do it.  Will they opt for a traditional promotion of press with various teases and previews, or will they want to catch everyone off guard and release new music out of the blue with no warning?

Regardless, we’ll all be waiting.
