Guns N Roses Unveil 'Chinese Democracy' UK Release Date
...And all American citzens will be entitled to a free of Dr. Pepper. Rock'n'Roll!
Guns N' Roses will finally release their new album ‘Chinese Democracy’ on November 24th in the United Kingdom. The album has been nearly fourteen years in the making and is reported to have cost frontman Axl Rose $2million.
Irving Azoff and Andy Gould, Guns N’ Roses’ co-managers, described the album’s release as “a historic moment in rock’n’roll”.
The album will be launched with a monumental campaign that matches the groundbreaking sound of the album itself, they said. 'Chinese Democracy' will be released in the US on November 24th exclusively in Best Buy stores.
An Epic Journey
The album’s journey to the record shelves has been as dramatic over recent months as it has been for almost two decades. In June, nine tracks, purported to be finished edits, appeared on an internet blog. 27-year-old Kevin Cogill, who uploaded the tracks, was arrested in August on suspicion of violating federal copyright laws. He has since pleaded not guilty.
Earlier this year, drinks company Dr Pepper promised each American citizen a free drink if the band released the album before the end of 2008. As the band will indeed release the album before 2008 is over, Dr. Pepper has now announced the rules for their free drink promo.
Fans recently heard 'Shackler's Revenge', another song from the album, on the video game Rock Band 2.
The album’s tracklist is:
'Street Of Dreams'
'If The World'
'This I Love'
'There Was A Time'
'Riad N' The Bedovins'
Of course, there's no Slash to be seen...but he's busy doing his own exciting things.
