The new GUNS N' ROSES album will be released on November 24th, it has been announced.

One of the most eagerly-awaited albums in rock history, the record will be the band's first since the simultaneous 1991 releases of Use Your Illusion I and II.

Plagued by numerous delays and lawsuits, many had been uncertain if the album would ever see the light of day but after the first play of the title track on BBC1 on Wednesday, Chinese Democracy will be finally hitting the shelves.

Two tracks from the album - Shackler's Revenge and If The World - had already been debuted in the Rock Band 2 videogame and the film Body of Lies respectively.

And after Radio 1's Sara Cox provided the first play of the lead single from an album more than a decade in the making, Black Frog and Geffen Records have confirmed the release date.

"The release of Chinese Democracy marks a historic moment in rock 'n' roll," said Irving Azoff and Andy Gould, Guns N' Roses' co-managers, "and we're launching with a monumental campaign that matches the groundbreaking sound of the album itself.

"Guns N' Roses fans have every reason to celebrate, for this is only the beginning."

Steve Berman, president of sales and marketing for Interscope and Geffen A&M Records, said the group had "redefined" the American rock band.

"We're incredibly excited that Chinese Democracy will be heard worldwide through Geffen Records and the Universal Music Group," he added.
