Guns N' Roses release first new song in 13 years titled Absurd... as they continue touring the world


They formed in 1985, and it seems 36 years later Guns N' Roses are still going strong.

On Friday, the band 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 3, Rolling Stone reports. 

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, per the report.

The lyrics to the fiery track see the band still in fine form, which lyrics including: 'Listen motherf*****s to this song that should be heard/Dragged down in the gutters/It’s more than you deserve,.'

After performing the track live, Axl is said to have told the crowd: 'That was fun. So you heard it here first, a new Guns N’ Roses song.'

The band are currently on tour and will next play at Comercia Park in Detroit on August 8.

They will be playing North America until October 12, 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.
