The man chosen to replace Scott Weiland as frontman for Velvet Revolver is … Scott Weiland. The oft-troubled singer is back with the band, and they’re making new music with an eye on a third studio album.

During an interview with ABC News Radio, Weiland talked about how far the band has already progressed. “They gave me a couple of songs and myself and Dave (guitarist Dave Kushnter) and Duff (bassist Duff McKagan) are gonna be getting together for a song writing session next week.”

Before the end of 2012, the band will be hitting the road. It won’t be until after Slash finishes touring in support of his upcoming solo album ‘Apocalyptic Love,’ which hits stores on May 22. Weiland said late summer or early fall is a fair timetable for a few live dates.

“We’ve all grown a lot,” the singer says about the past turbulence which split the band up. ”We’re able to put egos and differences and old … conflicts aside and so that’s really cool.”

The band has been on hiatus since 2008 when Weiland was let go after a series of conflicts and his arrest for driving under the influence of drugs. Corey Taylor of Slipknot was mentioned as a potential replacement, but reportedly Slash wasn’t on board with that decision. Just two weeks ago Weiland and Matt Sorum speculated that a reunion would be possible.
