It is the first new material from the original members in 28 years
Guns N’ Roses have announced a new EP Hard Skool. The record is due out on February 25, 2022. It is the first time in 28 years that vocalist Axl Rose, guitarist Slash, and bassist Duff McKagan have collaborated together on new material.
Check out the world premiere of the EP’s title track below.
The trio will be accompanied on the new studio effort by the current members of the GNR lineup, which is completed by guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer, as well as keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese. The forthcoming EP will also feature “Absurd,” a re-worked track from the Chinese Democracy sessions, as well as live recordings of the band’s ‘91 power ballad “Don’t Cry” and “You’re Crazy” from their seminal debut LP Appetite For Destruction.
Released back in August, “Absurd” was the first new Guns N’ Roses song in 13 years.
