Velvet Revolver look online for new singer

Band turn to the net for Scott Weiland's replacement

Velvet Revolver are set to hold an online audition to replace singer Scott Weiland.

According to the band’s guitarist Slash, the group are building a website to bring in singers over the next month.

He said: “The band is actually talking about building a Web site [and] doing some auditions via that, so that’s been something that’s developing at this point.


“We’re at that point of just listening to different things… it’s one of those kind of situations where you can’t really explain it to anybody because you’ll know it when you hear it. So I’m waiting to get that feeling of, ‘Yeah that’s it.'”

The band are due to play a forthcoming gig in Las Vegas which will see a number of singers take up vocal duties.

Slash told Billboard: “I’m not gonna name any names, but a bunch of well-known people will get up and sing some songs, and then also bring up a couple people that we think are pretty good and might sing a couple songs.”

As previously reported on NME.COM Weiland left the band on April 1 and immediately rejoined his old group Stone Temple Pilots, who are due to embark on a reunion tour in the summer.
