Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler has officially announced the formation of his brand new band. "I love the music that we're creating!" said Adler in a press release. "I haven't been this excited about my band since the GNR days." And what, pray tell, is the ever so clever name of this new rock and roll machine? "Adler." Yes boys and girls, why not cut any pretense and get right to it. Adler it is!

Joining Steven are frontman Jacob Bunton, formerly of Lynam and Mars Electric, and Lonny Paul, who also played in Adler's Appetite. Yes indeed, it's a power trio!! "Jacob is exactly the singer I have been searching for.  He has an amazing range and is a great writer and frontman." said Steven. "And Lonny is an amazing guitarist and songwriter and the vibe is amazing!"

The band is currently in the studio working on their debut album with producers Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Foreigner) and Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther, The Donnas).  And bringing it all full circle, the album will feature a guest appearance from his old bandmate Slash. Bursting with excitement, Adler adds "I'm so excited for everyone to hear this record!"
