In a surprising new interview with Eddie Trunk on his Trunk Nation SiriusXM Radio show, Slash categorically denied last week’s rumor of new music appearing from the band on the upcoming Terminator Dark Fate soundtrack. GNR has recorded new music (a cover most likely) and are working on ideas for a new album, but no new music will appear in the movie, according to Slash. ‘You Could Be Mine’ was used as the theme song for the second film in the Terminator series, 1991’s Terminator: Judgment Day. The band has a fall tour kicking off soon, at Louder Than Life.
“There’s nothing in the ‘Terminator’ movie,” he said. “These rumors, they take off and then they get a life of their own. And you can’t reel ’em in. They just sort of get tossed around in the wind. Anyway, but, yeah, so there’s nothing in there, in that.”
On GNR’s immediate plans for 2019: “We’re just doing this one run [of shows] in the States and a couple of dates in Mexico end of this month into November. And so that’s it for GUNS for now. And I think we have something coming up in March as far as touring is concerned. Obviously, everybody knows that we’re working on new material, which is really exciting, and so, that’s really primarily what the focus is.”
“I have nothing to tell you, information-wise, other than no, it’s not that. Everybody has been sort of, like, when we’re in town, working on it. And then when we’re out of town, obviously not. So it’s been that kind of thing.”
On whether new Guns music will be singles or a full album: “I think at the end of the day, everybody wants to have a full album released. I don’t think that’s really changed all that much. But there’s a different way of putting stuff out initially nowadays more so than… I mean, there’s always been the single, but now you sort of look at that preliminary release a little bit differently now. All things considered, it’s like the Wild West out there; there is no formula for any of it. [Laughs] I haven’t seen any routine kind of thing that works. I mean, you can do any one of a million different things to releasing a record. But at the end of the day, I think that we will ultimately release a full album.”
