Following yesterday's rumours that Guns N' Roses are set to be releasing a brand new album next year, guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal said that the band are looking forward to making new music, but have not necessarily started recording.

Though Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus recently said that the follow-up to 2008's 'Chinese Democracy' is mostly finished but probably won't be released until 2014 – according to Vintage Vinyl News – Thal has said the band are looking to get their current run of shows out of the way before recording.

Thal told Rolling Stone: "We just have little things on the back burner, just waiting for the right time for us to organise and make something new out of it. Hopefully we can make more music – that's what it's about."

He continued: "It's what the fans want, too. They want new music, and we can do it… Let's keep our fingers crossed that life will not get in the way and we can get this last batch of shows done. Looking forward to it, but I'm also looking forward to having the main priority of our Guns time be making new music."

The band's last album was 'Chinese Democracy', which arrived a mere 15 years after 1993's covers album, 'The Spaghetti Incident?'.
