Velvet Revolver's "Slither" single is now out in the UK. It comes in three versions:

A two cd set and also a 12" picture disc vinyl.

CD1 contains the following tracks "Slither", "Negative Creep", "Bodies (live)"
CD2: "Slither", "Money", "Set Me Free (live)"
12" single: "Slither" on side A (which has a full size photo of the band posing in a tunnel) and side B has "Set Me Free" which has a close up picture of the girl from the album cover.

Following his sentencing last week for a DUI, Scott Weiland issued a statement late Friday, stating that he has been clean and sober for more than eight months and has reunited with his wife and children. He claimed that the drugs in his system during the DUI, from October, were prescribed by his doctor. "Now that this is all behind me, I will be able to set the record straight," Weiland said. In an interview with Stuff magazine, the Velvet Revolver singer said that he had been on medication for manic depression, for which he'd sometimes medicate himself with heroin. "I was in a suicidal depression, a narcissistic, obsessive depression," he told the magazine. "And the only thing I could think about was my own self-centered, dark world. My thoughts today are not on myself."
