VELVET REVOLVER's much-anticipated debut album, due on April 27, 2004 through RCA Records, looks likely to be titled either "Contraband" or "Controband", BLABBERMOUTH.NET has revealed.

As previously reported, the CD — which will include twelve of the more than fifty tracks the band co-wrote before and after vocalist Scott Weiland (ex-STONE TEMPLE PILOTS) joined the lineup last spring — was produced by Josh Abraham (LIMP BIZKIT, STAIND) and mixed by Andy Wallace (NIRVANA, WHITE ZOMBIE, LINKIN PARK, SLAYER, SEPULTURA). Mastering took place on December 19 in New York City.

Weiland, who is currently completing a six-month residential drug rehabilitation program in Pasadena, Ca., finished recording the vocals to the last song for the album Friday (December 26) at Lavish studios in California with engineer Douglas Grean. Songtitles set to appear on the album include "Slither", "Falling to Pieces", "Superhuman" and "Illegal Eye".

VELVET REVOLVER's current lineup is rounded out by former GUNS N' ROSES members Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass), and Matt Sorum (drums), along with guitarist Dave Kushner (SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, LOADED).

I have to say that I'm looking forward to the new Velvet Revolver album with mixed emotions. I think that the chemistry Scott Weiland had with the DeLeo brothers (and Erik Kretz) was once in a century special. I know in previous interviews that Scott Weiland alluded to the fact that the GNR guys were much more accepting and understanding of Weiland's "excesses". Perhaps it's just a case of "birds of a feather" or "misery loves company". Criticize Scott Weiland as much as you want, but who can "cast the first stone" so to speak. The guy can truly be the most artistic contemporary rock/alternative singer song writer on the planet. If he does go the way of Cobain or Staley we will have lost a beautiful, last bastion of art in rock.
