Sorum Discusses Velvet Revolver's Plans

(hennemusic) Drummer Matt Sorum believes Velvet Revolver has something to prove. While there's hints that the band is close to making the final call on a certain singer they've recorded demos of 9 songs with him - Jon Wiederhorn of AOL's Noisecreep talked to Sorum about the band's plans for the coming year.

Sorum says of auditioning new singers: "We tried out some fairly unknown guys and some guys that have been out there a little bit. But the guy we're really excited about know is a pretty known guy. I don't want to say anything yet because we're still in the dating phase. We haven't consummated the relationship or made a gentleman's agreement. So I can't let the cat out of the bag until there's an official stamp of approval on the deal."

When asked if he and Slash have already written material for the next album, he said: "Yeah, we've got some tunes. We've got some great riffs. We're trying to strip it down a little bit. There's some good stuff. I would say we've probably got about four or five pretty good contenders with lyrics for stuff I'd be happy on a record. It's definitely rocking. But overall, we don't have too much music yet, because we're gonna just get in there and do it. The beauty about being in a band with these guys for so many years is we know what we've all got to offer on that front. So we don't have to pre-think things a whole lot. Even though we can dabble in ballads and play in other styles, we're pretty much comfortable being in a rock 'n' roll unit. We don't have to make ourselves something that we aren't. We're traditional in that sense." more on this story
