Guns n Roses Chinese Democracy has a release date again
Guns 'n' Roses "Chinese Democracy" has been rescheduled for release September 2, almost three years after the original release date.
Axl Rose has recorded over 70 songs for this record with various producers. In February, he fired producer Roy Thomas Baker who had been brought in to replace Sean Beaven.
It is unsure who will have credits on this version of the record, if it actually comes out. Rose recently commented on the record saying "we're in the studio doing this album and I can promise you that we're gonna deliver and it's gonna be out of the ballpark. We've been working on this album and I can tell you we're doing our best and that's all I can promise".
The Guns 'n' Roses lineup for the record is Axl Rose (vocals), Robin Finck (guitar), Buckethead (guitar), Chris Pittman (keyboards), Tommy Stinson (bass), Dizzy Reed (keyboards) and Brain (drums).
The band performed in Las Vegas last December and debuted a number of songs expected to be on the album. They were Oh My God; Madagascar; Chinese Democracy; The Blues and Silk Worms.
To date, the only song that has been officially released is "Oh My God" which featured on the 1999 movie soundtrack to "End of Days."
Guns 'n' Roses have been confirmed for the Carling Festival in England in August. Unconfirmed reports also have them scheduled for China and Japan early August.
