Rockers GUNS N' ROSES have moved to halt a series of internet leaks which threatened to disrupt the launch of their new album CHINESE DEMOCRACY.
The Mr Brownstone hitmakers threatened legal action against a U.S. website which posted several of the LP's new songs online on Wednesday (18Jun08).
Six songs were reportedly leaked from the record and several appeared on Antiquiet.com, according to Blabbermouth.net.
And the move prompted the band to issue a cease and desist letter to the site, ordering all of the links to the tracks be removed.
A statement from Antiquiet.com confirms the new music has now been taken down. It reads, "The player has been at least temporarily removed, because it basically broke the entire internet. Also, we got a call from Guns N' Roses."
The group have been working on the album since 1995 and it is now said to be finally nearing release.
