Duff McKagan´s Loaded: New Album "The Taking" Due in April - New Video Footage Available
Video footage of Duff McKagan's Loadedrehearsing for its upcoming live appearances can be viewed below.
Duff McKagan's Loaded's new album, "The Taking", will be released on April 19 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. The CD was recorded at a Seattle-area studio with veteran rock producer Terry Date (Soundgarden, Pantera).
"This record really sort of took a life of its' own, and the songs really revealed themselves to us as we went along," says Duff. "Terry Date came into the picture at a time when his genius ear helped to capture a sonic theme for the record. You can't underestimate what a guy like TD brings to the table. The Taking is the closest thing to a 'concept' record that I have ever been involved with. Pain, loss, triumph, and redemption. Life. Bring it."
Also available are audio streams of three songs from the CD: "Cocaine", "We Win" and "Dead Skin".
A trailer for the upcoming feature-length film about Duff McKagan and Loaded can be viewed below. The movie is based on "The Taking" and is being helmed by Seattle filmmaker and documentarian Jamie Burton Chamberlin.
