Rockers Guns N’ Rose are finally working on a new record, six years after the release of their long-delayed album “Chinese Democracy.”

The “Sweet Child O’ Mine” hitmakers’ 2008 disc was their first album of new material for 17 years, but fans will not have to wait quite as long for the band’s next release as they are hoping to put out a record in 2015.

Guitarists Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba reveal the rockers have been recording ideas in home studios and passing them around to the other band members.

Fortus says, “We are working on stuff and hopefully very soon we’re going to have new stuff out… Well, in the next year.”
Guns N’ Roses are due to embark on a nine-date run of gigs in Las Vegas next month, and Fortus hopes it will fuel their creativity: “We’re going to be in Vegas all together, so hopefully during that time we’re going to be able to get in a room and start laying down some more stuff.”
