Eagle Rock Entertainment is proud to announce the signing of Guns ‘N’ Roses/Velvet Revolver founding member Duff McKagan.
The new studio album from Duff McKagan’s Loaded, The Soundtrack, was recorded by Terry Date (Slipknot, Soundgarden) and will be released March 2011. A re-issue of their 2009 CD Sick with bonus DVD will follow in April.
“Eagle seems to get the hard work ethic of Loaded,” states Duff. “I am proud to have such an excited partner as [them].”
Currently available on all digital service providers in the US are two tracks from the upcoming CD: “We Win” and “Fight On.” “We Win” is an anthemic rocker McKagan’s hometown football team the Seattle Seahawks have been playing before their home games. It was also heard during the World Series on the MLB network.
“Fight On” draws inspiration from military veterans, and gives back via proceeds from the song’s downloads, which go exclusively to the Puget Sound Healthcare System veteran administration.
Also on the horizon for the band is the film feature Loaded, a rock ‘n’ roll odyssey in the vein of The Beatles “A Hard Day’s Night” and Led Zeppelin’s “The Song Remains The Same.” Set in the contemporary landscapes of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, Loaded is a series of “vignettes” which explores the lyrical content of the band’s upcoming studio album, all tied into a cohesive storyline that’s part documentary, part live performance, and all fun.
