One year on from debut album Colossus, Pearl Handled Revolver this week released the follow-up entitled This Mountain Waits.
Starting life as a hard-hitting blues-rock band, the Bedfordshire-based five-piece proclaim: “We’ve evolved and broadened our palette to produce a second album that is wilder, more exploratory and captures the essence of our exhilarating, psychedelic live performances.”
Rattle Your Bones (which, natch, is included on This Mountain Waits) has its very own video. Watch it below.
Rattle Your Bones is also featured on the free CD that comes with the latest issue of Classic Rock: Undivided – 15 Of The Hottest New Bands In Britain. Go here to vote for your favourites! (But you better hurry – voting closes on April 24.)
Velvet Revolver are reuniting with vocalist Scott Weiland – but only for one night.
The band will play at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood on Thursday, January 12. It’s for a show being billed Love You Madly: A Concert For John O’Brien. He was a top film and TV composer, found dead at the age of 45 in a Chicago hotel room on August 20 this year
Also on the bill are Sheryl Crow, Tom Morello and Stephen Stills.
Velvet Revolver have yet to find a replacement for Weiland, who left four years ago.
It was 45 years ago that The Beatles released this album, one of my favorites of theirs. Do you have a favorite song off this album? I think mine is Good Day Sunshine or Eleanor Rigby or For No One or….
UPDATE: One of my blog friends has asked for this DVD so I am giving it to her. But keep your eyes open, I will be giving away a Rolling Stones DVD next week!
I’ve been given a copy of brand new DVD, “Velvet Revolver Live in Houston”. I am not a huge VR fan so I am giving this DVD away to someone who will agree to review it on their blog (or I can put it here if you don’t have a blog). So let me know if you’re interested and I’ll pick a name out of a hat for the “winner”. Should I use this hat?

Slipknot singer Corey Taylor has finally confirmed rumors that he tried out for Velvet Revolver’s vacant lead singer slot, telling Altitude TV, “I had a meeting with those guys, we did some demos together, and it just didn’t work — for whatever reason.” Since Scott Weiland’s departure from Velvet Revolver in April 2008, everyone from Lenny Kravitz to Sebastian Bach to Modern Rock living
