The Rock Radio reports that Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash told Chilean magazine Rock & Pop this week that while the band is still playing songs from Guns N' Roses and Stone Temple Pilots during its current run of South American shows, it plans to drop those numbers from its set list later this year. Slash, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum were all in G N' R, while singer Scott Weiland previously fronted STP. Velvet Revolver will likely abandon playing tunes from those bands as it incorporates new material from its upcoming Libertad album into the live show.
Slash said that the old Guns and STP tracks are in the set for now because Velvet Revolver has never played South America before.
Libertad, Velvet Revolver's second album, has had its release pushed back from early June to later that month. The CD's tentative first single is called "She Builds Quick Machines."
Duff McKagan said in a recent interview with Kerrang! magazine that the group had a hard time starting work on Libertad after a vacation of several months. He explained, "It was really, really tough getting us back together into a place where our headspace was right to be able to start a new record. We were all pretty fragmented...It took us a while to get back to where we were feeling good, and we finally got that back last July and August."
Velvet Revolver will launch an 11-date U.S. trek on May 4th at the House of Blues in Los Angeles.
