Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose says the band has two upcoming albums of music written

Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose says the rockers have written two albums of new material, including something he calls the “second half” of the band’s long-awaited 2008 release, “Chinese Democracy.”

“We recorded a lot of things before ‘Chinese (Democracy)’ was out,” Rose said in an interview with Revolver magazine. “We’ve worked more on some of those things and written a few new things. But basically, we have what I call kind of the second half of ‘Chinese.’ And then we have a remix album made of the songs from ‘Chinese.’”

So, when can fans expect to hear this companion to “Chinese Democracy?” According to Rose, there’s no release date in the band’s foresight, but he hopes to “start looking very seriously at what we’re doing” after Guns N’ Roses closes out their Las Vegas residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino this weekend.

Rose added that having classic Guns N’ Roses bass player Duff McKagan back with the band for a few gigs “went really well. He worked really hard on the parts and he liked playing the newer songs from ‘Chinese.’ … And the Duff that played these shows with us isn’t really the Duff that I knew from what I’d call “Old Guns” or the ‘Appetite’ lineup or the ‘Illusions’ lineup.”
