Duff McKagan’s Loaded Announce European Tour Dates


June 14, 2008

Velvet Revolver’s Duff McKagan is set to return to Europe with Duff McKagan’s Loaded.

The hard hitting Seattle fourpiece, fronted by the legendary Duff McKagan as vocalist and guitarist, are set to tour the UK for the first time…

Debut album ‘Dark Days’, released in 2001, shows a band at the height of their powers. From the ‘kick in the head’ of punked up ballsy album opener ‘Seattlehead’ to the epic and moody ‘Criminal’, from the grunge swing of ‘Wrap My Arms’ to the introspective ‘Dark Days’, the album showcases driving and melodic punk infused rock overlaid with McKagan’s unique and powerful vocals.

The band are currently in the studio working on material for a new studio album (release date tbc). The sessions are progressing well and they band already have three new tracks ready – ‘Forgive Me’, ‘Sick’ and ‘No More’.

With Duff McKagan on Vocals and Guitar, the band is completed by Jeff Rouse on Bass, Mike Squires on Guitar and Geoff Reading on Drums.
