Velvet Revolver, who went through a bitter split with Scott Weiland earlier this month, is looking to cyberspace in their search for a new lead singer.
“The band is actually talking about actually building a website [and] doing some auditions via that, so that’s been something that’s developing at this point,” guitarist Slash told Billboard.com.
He added that the plan should be set in motion “in the next month or so.”
According to Slash, he and the other band members have not yet decided what they are looking for in their next singer.
“We’re at that point of just listening to different things,” he said. “It’s one of those kind of situations where you can’t really explain it to anybody because you’ll know it when you hear it.”
Meanwhile, the band is relying on famous friends to fill the void left by Weiland’s dismissal for their upcoming show in Las Vegas.
“I’m not gonna name any names, but a bunch of well-known people will get up and sing some songs, and then also bring up a couple people that we think are pretty good and might sing a couple songs,” Slash said. “So it’d just be for fun.”
As previously reported, Weiland has gotten back together with his former band Stone Temple Pilots. The newly reformed group will embark on an extensive North American tour this summer.
