Slash and co find new Velvet Revolver singer

But drummer Matt Sorum says band can't reveal who it is just yet...

By Tom Goodwyn

Velvet Revolver have apparently found their new lead singer – but they won’t name who it is just yet.

Speaking to The Pulse Of Radio, drummer Matt Sorum said the band have somebody that they “really like a lot” and that he believed “this could be a real turning point for the band”.

The band have been without a singer since Scott Weiland left in 2008 to return to Stone Temple Pilots.

Sorum joked that the reason he wouldn’t reveal the name was because the singer and Velvet Revolver were “dating”.

He said: “We can’t make the announcement yet because we’re ‘dating,’ you know. We haven’t consummated the relationship, we haven’t sat down this gentleman and made the agreement together.”

Sorum also said he understood fans’ frustration with how long it has taken to find a new singer. “I know it’s been like this long-winded, ‘Oh, Velvet Revolver this, Velvet Revolver that,'” he admitted. “We’re tired of it, believe me. But we don’t have the ability to just jump out there with any singer. We can’t do it.”

Two candidates who are known to have auditioned are Scars On Broadway singer Frankie Perez and Spacehog frontman Royston Langdon. Speculation continues that Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy, who has spent the last two years touring as part of guitarist Slash’s live band, is also in the band’s thoughts.

Sorum also confirmed that the man he is talking about is a “known guy” and that he is “younger and stronger”.
