After a decade of waiting, waiting some more, and pretending the wait is over, the wait is, indeed, definitely, probably, possibly over. Guns N’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy, the perpetually delayed follow-up to 1991’s Use Your Illusion, will be released exclusively via Best Buy Sunday, November 23, Billboard.com reports. In the U.S., new releases typically drop on Tuesday.
Borrowing equally from the innovative distribution strategies of Metallica and AC/DC, the release of Guns N’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy will be preceded by two teasers: “Shackler’s Revenge,” which will appear in Rock Band 2, and “If the World,” which will play over the end credits of the forthcoming film Body of Lies.
If you’re looking for something to wash all of that down with, may we suggest a refreshing beverage?
