Slash took to his MySpace page for a “new update” blog in which he revealed that Velvet Revolver is back in the studio and searching for a new singer. It’s been two-and-a-half years since Slash, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Dave Kushner parted ways with singer Scott Weiland.
“VR is back together jamming, trying out singers,” wrote Slash. “No updates yet. But it’s great to hook up with Duff, Matt & Dave after all this time. I’ll keep you posted on any interesting developments from those sessions as they happen. The creative juices are definitely flowing. I’m positive something awesome is going to surface soon.”
