Velvet Revolver's Duff McKagan (ex-Guns N Roses) is set to return with Duff McKagan's Loaded. The hard hitting Seattle four-piece, fronted by the legendary Duff McKagan as vocalist and guitarist, is set to tour the UK for the first time and release a limited edition EP through Century Media Records.
Following their debut album "Dark Days", released in 2001, the forthcoming five track "Wasted Heart EP" shows a band at the height of their powers. The EP showcases driving and melodic punk infused rock overlaid with McKagan's vocals.
On the band's deal with Century Media Duff McKagan says the following: "We are truly looking forward to this partnership with Century Media. I am encouraged that they indeed understand the spirit and integrity of Duff McKagan's Loaded. This first EP, Wasted Heart, should shed some light on who we are, what we do, and how the fuck we do it!"
The "Wasted Heart EP" will be available for sale at the band dates (below) – effectively pre release. The band is currently putting the final touches on a full length studio album, set for release in early 2009. Both the album and EP were produced by Martin Feveyear (Presidents of the USA, Kings of Leon).
With Duff McKagan on Vocals and Guitar, the band is completed by Jeff Rouse on Bass, Mike Squires on Guitar and Geoff Reading on Drums. Duff McKagan's Loaded will be playing European dates. Full tour dates are as follows: More...
