They formed in 1985, and it seems 36 years later Guns N’ Roses are still going strong.
The band has released their first new song in 13 years, which is an official audio version of the track Absurd which they performed live at Boston’s Fenway Park on August 3rd.
The song is a previously unreleased track that was originally titled Silkworms, but the live recording has now been re-titled Absurd.
‘Some of you might have heard this under another name, but this is really kind of absurd to try this’, front man Axl Rose said at the time of the performance.
The lyrics to the fiery track see the band still in fine form and after performing the track live, Axl said to the crowd, ‘That was fun. So you heard it here first, a new Guns N’ Roses song.’
The band are currently on tour and playing North America until October 12th, when they play at Estadio de Beisbol in Monterrey, Mexico.
Next stop for the classic group will be Australia and New Zealand in November and, following that, Europe in June 2022.
