Duff McKagan's Loaded EP Details

Loaded, the band formed by current Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan (on guitar and vocals) after he left Guns N' Roses, will release a five-song EP entitled "Wasted Heart" in September via Century Media Records. A new full-length album will follow in early 2009. The sessions with producer Martin Feveyear are progressing well and they band already has several new tracks ready "Roll Away", "Forgive Me", "Sick", "No More", "Southern Girl", "No Shame" and "Translucent". Commented McKagan: "We are truly looking forward to this partnership with Century Media. I am encouraged that they indeed understand the spirit and integrity of Loaded. This first EP should shed some light on who we are, what we do and how the fuck we do it!" A new Loaded song entitled "No More" is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. "These are purely my songs," McKagan told Billboard.com. "It's probably more derivative of my earlier years of punk rock. It's a good rock 'n' roll band. It's fun, is what it is. There's no real business and no real drama. I'm really into no drama right now," he adds, noting Scott Weiland's recent rancorous departure from Velvet Revolver. In addition to McKagan, Loaded features drummer Geoff Reading (Green Apple Quick Step), bassist Jeff Rouse (Vendetta Red, Alien Crime Syndicate) and guitarist Mike Squires (Alien Crime Syndicate). Loaded will embark on a European tour in September. Support on the UK/Ireland portion of the trek will come from The Loyalties. Loaded was formed in 1999 and has morphed several times, releasing two albums: 1999's "Live Episode" and 2001's "Dark Days". Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    I completely agree with you, I can feel it, it's gonna happen! They owe us at least 15 or 20 more albums!

    I've heard some of the songs off of their first album before but I thought they were unreleased Duff solo songs (the ones he did with Izzy), I was skeptical about this band at first but they're actually very good.

    This should be good. I've only heard Dark Days, and the new song on myspace, but thought they were awesome. It had better be good anyway, I'm goin to see them on th 22nd September

    Once again, you're wrong. He plays guitar for this band. "Loaded, the band formed by current Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan (on guitar and vocals )"

    No More is actually a pretty good song. wasn't a huge fan of dark days, however, i am kinda excited for this one.
