Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus says there's a good possibility that the current iteration of the band will record a new album.
Fortus told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently, "Everyone is excited about it. There's a really magical thing now with the band. It feels like a new band. It feels like the best version since I joined, and it's the most fun for me. There's so much excitement around it."
Fortus, on The StageLeft Podcast in June, also addressed the rumors of a new album, saying, "We haven't started recording anything. I mean, when I say that, as far as the studio, doing an album... We've been recording a lot of good stuff, just ideas, sort of assembling ideas, but not going into a studio and actually tracking a new record."
He was asked if he thinks the band will come through with a new album to which he responded, "Yeah, I do. It's sort of too good not to happen at this point – that's how I feel about it."
Guns N' Roses most recent album was the 2008's Chinese Democracy. The last album to feature Slash and Duff McKagan was the 1993 covers album The Spaghetti Incident?
The band recently announced a string of new tour dates including a stop in DC at the Verizon Center on October 19th.
