For Immediate Release:

VELVET REVOLVER ANNOUNCE U.S. TOUR DATES AS SINGLE “SLITHER” BLOWS UP AT RADIO;

TRACK IS #1 MOST ADDED AT MODERN, ACTIVE AND MAINSTREAM ROCK;

BAND SHOOTS VIDEO FOR “SLITHER” WITH DIRECTOR KEVIN KERSLAKE;

DEBUT CD ‘CONTRABAND’ IN STORES JUNE 8

Velvet Revolver will jump-start the June 8 release of their much-anticipated debut album Contraband (RCA) with their first-ever tour. Launching May 13 in St. Louis, the intimate venue trek will take the band--who’ve only played one show before (last year in Los Angeles)--across the U.S. into such cities as New York, Los Angeles, Washington, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco and Detroit, among others.

“Slither,” the album’s first single, exploded at radio in its first week of release, airing on over 130 stations. The song was #1 Most Added at Modern Rock, Active Rock and Mainstream Rock.

For the “Slither” video, Velvet Revolver--lead vocalist Scott Weiland, guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan, drummer Matt Sorum and guitarist Dave Kushner--joined forces with video director Kevin Kerslake (Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iggy Pop). The band performed the powerful song in an underground "catacomb party" in front of hundreds of fans packed into the sprawling basement of a downtown Los Angeles warehouse. Other portions of the “Slither” video are being shot in Europe, where “catacomb parties” take place underground, reachable only by following a series of clues and traveling through the maze of tunnels that lay nearly a half-mile underneath the city. Look for the “Slither” video to premiere Tuesday, April 27 at 9:00 PM Eastern/Pacific as part of MTV2 “Makes The Video.”

While Velvet Revolver inevitably offers a few echoes of its members’ illustrious pasts, their sound is defiantly forward-looking and truly fresh in all senses of that word. “Slither” is an epic rock song that merges musical ferocity with the urgent drama of such lines as “Yeah, here comes the water/It’s come to wash away the sins of you and I/This time you see/Like holy water/It only burns you faster than you’ll ever dry/This time with me.”
