Guns N' Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed has declared that the band's new material sounds "pretty amazing".

Earlier this month, the band's bassist Tommy Stinson said that the rockers were eager to head to the studio and start work on the follow-up to their 2008 album 'Chinese Democracy'.

In an interview with Billboard, Reed admitted he didn't know when the band's next album would be released, but did reveal that they had a glut of material left over from the sessions that they could put out.

"We haven't really talked a lot about that," he said when asked if the band had discussed recording a new LP, before adding: "There's a lot we've recorded, a lot of material back when we started working on 'Chinese Democracy', so there's quite a bit of unreleased stuff that would be really cool to finish and put out."

He also claimed that while the band hadn't headed to the studio for official recording sessions, they had all been working on new tracks and were full of "great ideas".

He went on to say:

All of it [the material] is great, so any selection of another 12, 15 songs would be awesome. I'm not just giving you an easy answer; I truly believe all of it's pretty amazing.

Earlier this week, Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose revealed he had not ruled out reuniting with his former bandmates Slash, Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin if they are chosen to be inducted into the Rock N'Roll Hall Of Fame.
