|Velvet Revolver, the new band featuring Guns N' Roses vets Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, David Kushner of Suicidal Tendencies and former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland, will likely release an EP in the coming months via Immortal Records. The label has inked a new deal with RED Distribution; Immortal was previously distributed by Epic and Virgin.
To date, Velvet Revolver's lone available track is "Set Me Free," which was included on Decca's soundtrack to "The Hulk." The cut is No. 20 this week on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks airplay chart.
Velvet Revolver joins the hard rock acts No One and Switched on Immortal's roster. The label expects to release a soundtrack album for the film "Blood Money" featuring Busta Rhymes and Xzibit by the end of the year.
