Slash of the widely popular hard rock band Guns N’ Roses has spoken up about the band potentially releasing new music. He did clarify that there were no specifics as of yet, and said he would be giving no definitive answer at the moment, but he did reveal that one of the worries he and the band have is what sound they were going to offer their fans this time around.
According to a report by Ultimate Classic Rock, a website bringing rock music news, interviews, and other rock headlines, Slash spoke with Guitar.com during the National Association of Music Merchants.
He told Guitar, “There’s been no definitive answer or anything, and I’ll just keep to that. Stuff is happening, but there are no specifics. More than anything, it’s because of the nature of the industry right now. It’s just like, how do you want to do this? I mean, there’s material and there’s recording and there’s shit going on, but we’re not really sure what we’re doing with it right now.”
However vague this piece of news is regarding whether the band will come back together for a sixth LP or not is also continually pushed forward by the fact that both Slash and Axl Rose, together with bassist Duff McKagan, partially reunited for a little while.
Not to mention the above statement with Guitar.com happened way back in February, and in April, Slash only started dropping more hints about a potential Guns N’ Roses record.
Aside from all this teasing of the album, another concern that the band has is what their current sound is going to be.
Slash and the rest of the band understand that the changes in the music industry have been seismic and that rock music, though still considered a great hallmark for music production, is no longer the most played genre on the radios.
On this, Slash said, “There’s a handful [of] people who said, ‘Yeah, make a record and go old-school.’ And there’s a handful of people that are like, ‘We don’t even know what buying a record is any more!’”
