Slash has uploaded a video of what is expected to be a new Guns N Roses song called ‘Hard Skool’.

Slash put video of a rehearsal in Chicago featuring the song. While the band played in Chicago on Thursday they did not play the song in the set. They also didn’t perform ‘Hard Skool’ at the Milwaukee show on Saturday.

A new song ‘Absurd’ was released in August. It is the first new Guns N Roses song to feature Slash and Duff McLagan since the 1994 cover of ‘Sympathy for the Devil’.

‘Absurd’ was a song originally called ‘Silkworms’. It was recorded but not used on the ‘Chinese Democracy’ album of 2008 and as ‘Silkworms’ was performed four times by Axl’s non-Slash edition of Guns N Roses. Guns N Roses have played it in each show in their current tour.

Meanwhile tickets for Guns N Roses Australian shows for November are still on sale despite no chance of them happening in Australia this year. With new Covid rules in place and a timeline for Australia to come out of lockdown, Australia will not be open for the scheduled 6 November start of the tour in Queensland, nor will Australia be able to accommodate any of these dates in 2021.

The Australian Guns N Roses tour will be rescheduled. However, no official word has been given as to when fans can expect the new dates.
