Chinese Democracy release date / artwork revealed

Is this the most anticipated rock release of all-time? Or just a the most drawn-out?

Finally, the long-awaited, much-touted, much-discussed first album of new material from Guns ‘n’ Roses since 1991’s simultaneous release of Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II gets a release date.

Chinese Democracywill be available in Ireland on November 21th on CD and vinyl (accompanied by a free digital download of the tracks), and as a separate digital album.

Produced by Axl Rose and Caram Costanzo, Chinese Democracy includes 14 tracks. The title track and first single from the album, ‘Chinese Democracy’, was released to Irish radio this week. Two of the recordings have been recently released–‘Shackler’s Revenge’ debuted September 14 in the ‘Rock Band 2’ videogame and ‘If The World’ debuted October 11 in the film Body Of Lies.

More importantly, Dr. Pepper are making good on their promise to give every American a free soft drink if the album was released this year.

    It’s gonna be a change in direction soundwise, but when your finally getting new official material who cares, I certainly don’t. There a lot that can be said good and bad, but as in the official statement by Guns management this is only the beginning and I personally can’t wait. We even get it before the states.
