and Guns N Roses
members, along with snippets of new tracks "Hollow," "Stone," "Voices"
and "Phantom Limb."
The likes of Lars Ulrich
and Rob Trujillo

release via Virgin/EMI Records. As the band's fifth studio release, it will be the second one to feature vocalist Willian DuVall
. According to guitarist Jerry Cantrell
