VELVET REVOLVER: 'The Last Fight' Video Posted Online

VELVET REVOLVER's video for the band's new single, "The Last Fight", is available for viewing exlusively at Yahoo! Music.

"The Last Fight" is the second single from VELVET REVOLVER's sophomore album, "Libertad", which sold 93,000 copies in the United States during its first week of release to land at position No. 5 on The Billboard chart. This is a little over one-third of the 256,000 first-week tally registered by its predecessor, "Contraband", which landed at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart back in June 2004.

The melodically transcendent and emotionally cathartic "The Last Fight" is one of the songs inspired by the recent passing of frontman Scott Weiland's brother Michael. In an August 3 interview with The Sun (UK newspaper), Scott explained, "'Libertad' is dedicated to Michael. It is a fitting album title as my brother was certainly searching for his own liberty and freedom up to the way he died. I was really angry at him at first, for my parents and our family but I was able to channel this anger and grief into songs as 'The Last Fight' and 'For A Brother'. It made me come to terms with how sad I was."

The first single from "Libertad" was "She Builds Quick Machines".

VELVET REVOLVER has been confirmed as a special guest at KROQ's massive L.A. Invasion on Saturday, September 15 at the Home Depot Center, where they'll perform along with such artists as SMASHING PUMPKINS and FOO FIGHTERS.
