VELVET REVOLVER To Begin Putting Together Ideas For New Album In The Fall

VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash has told Rolling Stone magazine that the group are planning to get cracking on their second record in the fall.

"As soon as we get off the road, we want to start getting the next record done and get it out," he said. "We don't want to lose momentum."

The band already have plenty of material to follow up their 2004 chart-topping debut, "Contraband". "We've got tapes and tapes of stuff that we've been writing at soundcheck," Slash said. "There should be more than an album's worth of material. And then there's all the stuff we wrote before we did the first record that we never really touched."

Slash also thinks that, with the orientation phase of the band over, their sophomore effort should come together more easily. "When we did this first record, it was like a bunch of kids in a sandbox all thrown in at one time," he said. "Now we've managed to play together as a band, grow as a band and get to know each other as a band."
