VELVET REVOLVER Drummer: 'We Have 18 Songs Ready And We Are All Very Excited'

VELVET REVOLVER drummer Matt Sorum has issued the following update:

"Looks like VELVET REVOLVER are finally going to start recording the album. We have 18 songs ready and we are all very excited. Producer Brendan O'Brien [PEARL JAM, SOUNDGARDEN, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, AUDIOSLAVE] has been in pre-production with us at Scott's [Weiland, vocals] Lavish studios for the last three weeks. We have been working six days a week, and let me tell you that man has whipped us into shape. This will be a killer album, I promise you.

"We are planning to record right up to Christmas and then finish up just after the New Year. Making plans for touring in the spring. I know it has taken a little while, but it's going [to] ROCK. Can't wait to get back out on the road with all you great fans."

VELVET REVOLVER's sophomore album has a working title of "Libertad". The band's 2004 debut, "Contraband", was certified double-platinum for sales in excess of two million copies in the United States.
