2008 – House of Rock reports: As the long awaited release of Axl Rose’s version of Guns N Roses’ mythical 14 years in the making album ‘Chinese Democracy’ looms next week, Blabbermouth.net is reporting that they have received word from a reliable source that RCA Records (a Sony BMG label) has dropped Velvet Revolver, the band featuring former Guns ‘N’ Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum.

Velvet Revolver released two full-length albums through RCA/Sony BMG — 2004’s “Contraband”, which has sold 1.98 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan; and its follow-up, “Libertad”, which has shifted 301,000 units in the U.S. since its July 2007 release.

Velvet Revolver has been looking for a new frontman since dismissing Scott Weiland back in April. Rumored candidates have included ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach, former MTV VJ Steve Isaacs (The Panic Channel) and ex-Spacehog vocalist Royston Langdon, who apparently had several successful rehearsal sessions with the band.
