Welcome, Guns N’ Roses

Posted on February 12, 2008

Roadrunner Records are pleased to announce the signing of the almighty Guns N’ Roses. World famous, and indeed a household name, Guns N’ Roses have sold millions of records across their many year career and we are extremely proud to have them as part of the Roadrunner family! The recent, widely reported, legal dispute with Universal has been resolved in an undisclosed out of court settlement. The first release under the new deal will be the very long awaited ‘Chinese Democracy’ – currently pencilled in for a Christmas 2004 release, allowing the band time to replace ex-member Buckethead, and finalise work in the studio. Several cover art concepts are already being discussed, and a new photo shoot is planned for early Summer. Office staff here are already dribbling in anticipation of hearing the new tunes. Official touring plans for the UK are not yet confirmed, but the headline slot of a much enlarged Roadrage 2005 tour is under discussion. In other Guns news, guitarist Robin Finck has posted the following message on his official web site: “Dear friends, I want to make this opportunity to comment on GNR’s recent withdrawal from the Rock-In-Lisbon festival. I was disappointed, as were the lot of us, to come to grips that we won’t be performing there as anticipated. My bags have been packed for some time awaiting such an event. I’m chomping at the bit to get out and really shake things up with GNR and look forward to the release of the new album and ultimately to tour and to tour. ‘Til then – love, Robin” Guns N’ Roses, welcome aboard. For now, stay tuned to their ARTIST page for more news! [Update: as April Fools is now over, the GNR Artist page has been removed from this site]
