    "Velvet Revolver"'s second album, "Libertad", has been given a tentative U.S. release date of Tuesday, May 15th, according to A posting at the web site of Sony BMG Norway has listed a European arrival date of Monday, May 14th, with the North American release slated for the following day. Velvet Revolver is signed to Sony BMG subsidiary RCA Records. The release dates have not been officially confirmed by representatives for the label.

    Frontman Scott Weiland told us that Velvet Revolver has become more cohesive as a band on Libertad after touring for 18 months in support of its 2004 debut, Contraband: "You know, on the first album, we hadn't played together very much. You know, we really didn't know each other as a band. And after touring pretty solidly for a year and a half, you get to know what your musical identity is. And so on this record, I think we've really sort of defined what our musical identity is, you know, at least up to this point."
