MTV reports that two of the biggest names in hard rock – Velvet Revolver and Alice in Chains – will team up for a summer tour with Sparta handling the opening duties. Now, I’m all for bands with dead singer reuniting and bringing a new singer (see: Blind Melon) but I’m not all that excited to see this new version of Alice in Chains. And Velvet Revolver’s first album did nothing for me, so I suspect this is one I’ll be skipping. Tour dates will be announced shortly. In the meantime, check out the brand new Velvet Revolver video for “She Builds Quick Machines” from their forthcoming Liberated album (in stores July 3).
