GUNS N' ROSES: No Official Release Date Yet For 'Chinese Democracy'

Launch Radio Networks reports: Although former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash told a Philadelphia radio station two weeks ago that he heard a March release date was on tap for the long-delayed new GUNS album, the band's management has told Launch that no release date has been set. Slash said that he had learned about the March date from sources inside the GUNS camp. A management spokesperson said that the new album, titled "Chinese Democracy", "is coming," but its official arrival date has yet to be determined.

Slash also said in his interview that he has no feud, or any relationship for that matter, with GUNS frontman Axl Rose. Slash explained, "I haven't really talked to him directly, but we're not at each others throats or anything like that, just to kill all of that bad blood that people keep recreating. God, it's been going on for 10 years. He and I have never had a conversation, an argument...over that whole 10 years, and people have been generating all this animosity. But at this point there's no friction going on."

Rose is the only remaining original member of GUNS N' ROSES left in the band. Co-founders Slash and bassist Duff McKagan, as well as drummer Matt Sorum, are all now part of VELVET REVOLVER.

The last studio release from GUNS N' ROSES was the 1993 covers collection, "The Spaghetti Incident?" The group released a live effort in 1999 and a "Greatest Hits" set in 2004.

VELVET REVOLVER is currently working on its sophomore album.
