Velvet Revolver & Alice in Chains Launch Summer Tour

Velvet Revolver have ushered visceral rock back into the top of the  album charts next week with the July 3 release of their second CD Libertad (RCA Records). 

The band is Scott Weiland (lead vocals), Slash (guitars), Dave Kushner (guitars), Duff McKagan (bass) and Matt Sorum (drums). The members each bring a wealth of rock history to the band: Weiland fronted Stone Temple Pilots, Slash, McKagan and Sorum were the heart of Guns N’ Roses, and Kushner hails from the LA rock scene, including Wasted Youth. 

Produced by Brendan O’Brien, Libertad is the follow-up to Contraband, VR’s debut album, released in June 2004, which earned three million in sales worldwide and was awarded a Grammy for the lead track, "Slither."
