It was previously scheduled for 2006 and although some materials have been showcased during their live performances, no date has been fixed for its release.

Billy Howerdel of recently revealed that he had joined the team in working on the album in 2000. "I came in there initially to program some guitar sounds, and then wound up hitting it off with Axl, and then my job kind of migrated into the computer guy," he said. "I don't know what you would call me exactly. I kind of was there all night with Axl as he would work."
