VELVET REVOLVER: 'Contraband' Release Date Pushed Back A Week

According to the official homepage of RCA Records, VELVET REVOLVER's debut CD, "Contraband", will arrive on May 18 — one week later than its previously announced May 11 release date.

As previously reported, "Slither", the first single from "Contraband", is scheduled to go for radio adds on March 22, according to a posting at the web site of radio industry trade publication FMQB (Friday Morning Quarterback).

"Contraband" will include twelve of the more than fifty tracks the band co-wrote before and after vocalist Scott Weiland (ex-STONE TEMPLE PILOTS) joined the lineup last spring. The CD was produced by Josh Abraham (LIMP BIZKIT, STAIND) and mixed by Andy Wallace (NIRVANA, WHITE ZOMBIE, LINKIN PARK, SLAYER, SEPULTURA). Mastering took place on December 19 in New York City.

VELVET REVOLVER, whose current lineup is rounded out by former GUNS N' ROSES members Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass), and Matt Sorum (drums), along with guitarist Dave Kushner (SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, LOADED), were recently forced to postpone their plans to embark on a six-week promotional jaunt beginning in early March after Weiland was ordered back into lockdown rehab. Scott's DUI trial stemming from an October arrest in Hollywood is scheduled to begin on Feb. 18.
