Velvet Revolver have unveiled July 3rd as the newest release date for their sophomore record, Libertad, with "She Builds Quick Machines" as the first single.
"I think Contraband was a great record," bassist Duff McKagan told Billboard.com of Velvet Revolver's 2004 debut. "It was the right one for us to make as our first record. But Libertad really goes way beyond that musically. I don't think any of us could have made a better record at this point in our careers."
The band, featuring former members of Stone Temple Pilots and Guns N' Roses, will also perform songs from those respective groups on their forthcoming tour. "I don't know whether we'll do it the whole tour or once in awhile," McKagan says. "But I know people like to hear them and sometimes we really like to play them. It's songs we wrote, so why not?"
