Scott Weiland back with Velvet Revolver?

There’s some strangle rumblings coming from the Velvet Revolver camp.

ABC News Radio reports former VR frontman Scott Weiland tells them that he has reunited with the group.

“We’ve all grown a lot,” said Weiland. “We’re able to put egos and differences and old…conflicts aside and so that’s really cool.”

Weiland added that VR has already begun the writing process for their third studio album. “They gave me a couple of songs and myself and [guitarist] Dave [Kushner] and [bassist] Duff [McKagan] are gonna be getting together for a song writing session next week,” he said.

In addition, the singer says that VR will soon be hitting the road for a short tour before the end of the year once [guitarist] Slash finishes supporting his second solo album, “Apocalyptic Love.”

Slash’s solo album gets released [on May 22] and so he’s gonna do some touring on that and then we’re gonna go and do some [Velvet Revolver] shows in the later part of summer into early fall.”

Slash was asked about Weiland’s situation during a Monday morning radio interview with 93X in Minneapolis.

"I have absolutely no intention of going back to that. . . I'm on tour all year,” he responded. “I'll call Duff, but I seriously doubt [there is any truth to Weiland's comments]. We have no intention of going backwards."

VR are set to release a new DVD, “Let It Roll - Live in Germany” on May 25.

Full details on the DVD can be found here.
