Guns N Roses' "Chinese Democracy" is now odds on to his records shops in 2007 after the band's label admitted this week they were none the wiser to a November release schedule, reports Soundgenerator.

Axl Rose had recently revealed his intention to get the $15m, ten-year-old project onto the shelves before the end of the year, and a press release for the Chinese Democracy Tour at the beginning of October 2006 also stated that "there are only 13 Tuesdays left between now and the end of the year" - dropping a hint that the album would be released on a Tuesday between October 3rd and December 19th.

However, it looks near impossible that the album will be released in time for Christmas as the band's label, Universal Records, claimed this week that they had yet to received any information regarding a release date. With a likely four to six week turnaround required from GNR's management delivering the masterwork (not to mentioned publicity and promotion) it looks extremely unlikely the set will drop now until February, with January a traditional dead-zone for big new albums.

In other news, a new live DVD is in the pipeline for February. "Guns 'N' Roses - Live In Chicago" will be released on February 5th 2007 (we're sure of that), and was recorded at Chicago's Allstate Arena.

    although I'm a huge fan of slash, he wasn't Gn'R. GnR was basically Axl, Slash, Izzy and Duff. All four. Its not Gn'R without any of them. Izzy wrote most of the stuff anyway. Him duff and slash gave Appetite that badass sound. All the corny ballad type songs (which are still good) like november rain and my world and stuff that just doesn't sound like GnR, it was axl. So thats basically what you get in chinese democracy.

    Thats rigth, izzy is a great writer, but slash is just the better guitar player and his solos are the greatest

    HAHAHAHAHA i love it!!!!! axl never stops does he, it must be a genetic disorder or something.....oh and to the people saying "theres no point listening to the music now slash has gone" gnr died the day izzy left, being as though he wrote the majority of songs, and slash and duff said themselves that he was the spine (dont get me wrong though this aint a dig at slash he rocks \m/O.o\m/) oh well...

    Dewey1040 : HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Axl Rose is the biggest ***** of all time... He takes the cake for all rock star ass holes, Eddie Van Halen, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison. He wins, no other rock star compares to him. He skips concerts, cancels them because he cant drink, single handedly destroys a band, delays an album for over 10 years, and worst of all, all he does is sing, he doesnt right the guitar bass or drums. This album might not suck completely but for an album thats been in the works for over 10 years this will not nearly be good enough for the wait.
    ever seeing the video for "Dead Horse"... watch it and look like a fool...

    Hells_Bell : I am beginning to think that there is no album.
    I heard it, there is such album, it rocks, its awesome, but it's gonna be delayed until 2010 probably...

    Hahaha I think we all knew this was coming. I have a feeling this will be a great big disappointment.

    I'll tell you one thing: I won't be buying the cd, not anymore. I say we all boycott the cd and shows, even if this cd ever comes out. Axl has pushed this crap too far this time, and its time someone told him to either work and get our respect back, or leave the music industry. We don't need him, and we don't want him. How do the rest of his band put up with him?
    Bobthe66666
    Grrr. If I don't see a Mr. Brownstone II or at least a Garden Of Eden II I won't be a happy bunny. But Axl knows what he's doing. The longer he's in the studio, the better the album actually is. Can't wait.

    You All Are Treating this like Offical News, its only a Claim with no printed Source in the Artical, i stand behind the Band 100%

    I think we have a problem here where most tag along fans of GNR seem to think that by complaining something is going to be done about it! Itll be released when its ready, regardless of if its crap. If you aint happy about the wait, go and find a new hobby, let the real fans wait for the music to come. Music is music, regardless of cost or time taken. Let the music do the talking, Lets see if axl lives up to the title of 'rock legend'.

    Axl, can't, so what your saying by logical deduction is that he's no better than any musician on this site. I wouldn't argue with that. Pretty much anybody can sale an album with Slash on it. The other thing about the good GNR cover bands (as opposed to this one) though is they usually start on time and don't cut sets short because the third girl from the front row has red hair.

    i reckon the album will suck because of the fact that so many musicians have been involved so it will be inconsistant and shit but thats if it ever comes out
    gnrboi
    Seriously I dont think axl even cares about the music at all anymore. Like for christ sake he shows up late to his shows or doest come at all. Hes been delaying this album for ever. I bet there sint even an album! I think he just likes people talking about him. Think about it how often is he on the front page of this website and in the news and stuff. This guy is a joke
    italyjerry
    id rather see it not come out, because we all no the world is gonna end when it does

    ok so i was wrong he wrote guitar CHORDS FOR ONE SONG, i can play guitar chords and ive been playing guitar for one year. NVM i guess i was wrong he is an extremely talented guitarist and he is the band slash sucked and axl is god without him
    Thomaslikespigs
    anyone who was suprised about this news should go kill themselves. by the time this album is released, the title will have come true.

    they should be called "axl rose and the w*nkers" (get the bob marley and wailers pun? aha aha aha :|)

    you forgot about van halen having a full tour without fighting, another nirvana album, mtv to be wiped off the face of the earth, another pantera album, and for "Fire it Up" to be america's new anthem

    this is almost as bad as when mtv got metal bands to write power ballads and go unplugged...ALMOST, all that needs to happen now is for slash to become a country star and the world will end. happy holidays, o yeah and axl just earned the the nick name ***** rose permanately

    maybe he secretly released a year or two ago and it sucked so bad that he is telling us that he isn't gonna release it. or maybe the chinese kept it for them selves, those disgusting little midgets stole my GNR dammit!
    TheNthDimension
    Yeah... it can be as good as it wants but can it live up to the ten years and $15 million that went into it?
    The_Offspring99
    Axl didnt single-handedly destroy the original band. Slash and Duff have equal douche-ness in that mess.

    What? Chinese Democracy got delayed for the 50th year in a row even though Axl promised us that the album would be realeased THIS November? I smelt this shit before it came out of my ass. Snore.
    acoustic87
    I think people's frustration and confusion is explainable, I too am starting to think about what is REALLY going on with that album, BUT what I don't understand is all the anger. IS IT YOUR 15 MILLION THAT YOU HAVE WASTED ON THIS PROJECT? I like Guns N Roses and will not start hating them because of this. They have great songs that defined a decade. I bet people who posted all these bullshit comments, will go pop in Appepite of Destruction and play it until it wears out, because that is what music is about. I don't think Axl or the band are that stupid to push the date on the album. ANYTHING LESS THAN PERFECTION IS NOT WHAT GNR IS ABOUT. If Axl says the album is not ready, IT AIN'T READY. I am going to see them, I know it's gonna kick ass!

    Chinese democracy will probably be one of the best selling albums of all time, however, the album probably won't be released until axl is dead. And it will sound like crap.

    WTF!!! "...we have just recieved informations that the record label has pushed the release date for Guns N' Roses long awaited album, Chinese Democracy, back to 2010, noting that there are 600 tuesdays, 700000 hours, and...." - next headline
    misirlou
    listen. this album will never happen. there will never be another guns n roses album. it's time to move on.

    For some reason, axl rose reminds me of an older version of kevin federline, but i can't figure out why.
