Duff McKagan's Loaded: Post in-depth video miniseries online; prepare for European tour!
As the hard rock world eagerly anticipates the much talked about new effort from the Seattle-based sonic force DUFF MCKAGAN’s LOADED, the group has gone ahead and posted an in-depth, four-part miniseries (shot by King of Hearts Promotions) giving fans a look into the making of their new album. These clips further showcase the band’s undeniable songwriting chemistry and overall dynamic personalities. It’s not often that you get to take a trip with Duff to the grocery store and see how the legendary, ex-Guns N’ Roses and current Velvet Revolver bassist works in the studio. This is an all-out assault of pure rock and punk infused fury that pulls no punches, so click the link below to check all of the webisodes:
DUFF MCKAGAN’s LOADED has returned after a lengthy hiatus with their much anticipated, new full-length release, which was recorded by Martin Feveyear (Presidents of the USA, Kings of Leon) and will be released in March 2009. The quartet has signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records and a five-song EP (limited to 7.000 copies worldwide) entitled “Wasted Heart EP” will hit stores later this month and will also be sold directly on the band’s upcoming UK headlining tour.
“Wasted Heart EP” release dates:
GERMANY / AUSTRIA / SWITZERLAND / BENELUX / ITALY: Friday, September 26, 2008.
UK / FRANCE / GREECE / DENMARK / NORWAY / REST OF EUROPE: Monday, September 29, 2008.

SWEDEN / FINLAND / HUNGARY: Wednesday, October 1, 2008.
Be sure to visit www.myspace.com/loaded to check out the new track, “No More,” (from the “Wasted Heart EP”) and a new video clip for the track will be posted in the coming weeks. Duff also has a column in the Seattle Weekly, so click below to view his latest installment where he states his utter contempt for the much over-used term “rock star.”
DUFF MCKAGAN’s LOADED was formed in 1999 and has morphed several times, releasing two albums: 1999's “Live Episode” and 2001's “Dark Days”. The current line-up features drummer Geoff Reading (New American Shame, Green Apple Quickstep), bassist Jeff Rouse and guitarist Mike Squires (both formerly of Alien Crime Syndicate). This tight-knit group of rock n’ roll brothers bring their high-energy to every stage, from Seattle's Sunset Tavern to Tokyo's NK Hall.
