The tentative March 6 release date for Chinese Democracy, the chatter-amassing, oft-delayed album by Guns N’ Roses, has been scrapped. As previously reported, a polished version of the tune “Better,” speculated as the album’s first single, leaked to the web earlier this week, inciting anticipation for Chinese Democracy‘s release (read more). But, according to a band website post, fans will have to keep waiting. “There is no official release date, as the band is currently mixing, but after some delays and scheduling difficulties, things appear to be moving along,” the post read. “The good news is that all of the recording for the album has been completed.”
