Eagle Rock Entertainment will release The Taking, a brand new studio album from Duff McKagan's Loaded on vinyl (April 12) and CD (April 19).

McKagan once again takes front and center on lead vocals and guitars. Long time Loaded members Jeff Rouse (bassist) and Mike Squires (guitar) return along with drummer Isaac Carpenter who joined in late 2009.

Recorded by Terry Date (Soundgarden, Avenged Sevenfold), the album follows the band's 2009 debut Sick. A feature-length film, The Taking (in the style of A Hard Day's Night crossed with The Song Remains The Same), is due this summer.

"This record really sort of took a life of its' own, and the songs really revealed themselves to us as we went along," says Duff. "Terry Date came into the picture at a time when his genius ear helped to capture a sonic theme for the record. You can't underestimate what a guy like TD brings to the table. The Taking is the closest thing to a 'concept' record that I have ever been involved with. Pain, loss, triumph, and redemption. Life. Bring it."

The Taking track listing:

01. Lords of Abaddon 02. Executioner's Song 03. Dead Skin 04. We Win 05. Easier Lying 06. She's An Anchor 07. Indian Summer 08. Wrecking Ball 09. King Of The World 10. Cocaine 11. Your Name 12. Follow Me To Hell

    I have the album Sick and think it is really good. I am also a huge GnR fan so I like ALL GnR related stuff. Defo picking this up.

    Of the four tracks I've heard already (Cocaine, She's An Anchor, Wrecking Ball and Dead Skin) Dead Skin is my favourite with Wrecking Ball a very close second. Executioner's Song, from the Wasted Heart EP, is already one of my fave Loaded songs so it'll be interesting to hear if it's been reworked. Roll on April!
