VELVET REVOLVER To Add B-Sides To New Version Of Debut Album

Launch Radio Networks is reporting that VELVET REVOLVER's U.S fans will be able to hear some of the B-side cover versions from some of their overseas singles. The band will release a new version of their debut album, "Contraband", later this month packaged with an additional disc featuring the covers — AEROSMITH's "No More No More", CHEAP TRICK's "Surrender", and NIRVANA's "Negative Creep", all of which they've been playing live. Bassist Duff McKagan said he's happy the songs will finally be available to fans at home, since the tracks are so important overseas. "There's no B-sides in America anymore, but in Europe and Japan, it's still a big deal having, you know, releasing singles and having these different B-sides," he told Launch.

VELVET REVOLVER are continuing to add covers to their shows, and McKagan said they've worked up a version of QUEEN's "Tie Your Mother Down". VELVET REVOLVER are also looking at footage for a possible concert DVD in the near future.
