Fun fact: Guns N’ Roses can be awfully distracting. How so? A bunch of artists offered up previews to new projects, and we’re just now getting to them. (We’re sorry! We boarded the “Night Train” and just got back to the station.)
First up, we have a video from Avenged Sevenfold who are working on their follow-up to 2013’s Hail To The King. It was released on April Fools’ Day, so they tease a weird funk music clip, but then they play a brief instrumental cut from their new material. We can’t get new music from A7X fast enough.
Next up, we have the latest from Sixx: A.M. with “You’ve Come To The Right Place.” This is the second track to be previewed from their April 29th release Prayers For The Damned Vol. 1.
Lastly, Ace Frehley previewed a new cut from his upcoming covers album Origins with a rendition of Thin Lizzy’s “Emerald” featuring Slash, proving that even when we tried to step away from GN’R for this entire post, we can’t help but stumble upon a little bit.
