The band released Libertad in 2007, driven by the release of the single "She Builds Quick Machines", and embarked on a tourwith Alice in Chains. In April 2008, Weiland parted ways with Velvet Revolver and has since reunited with Stone Temple Pilots. Velvet Revolver has been onindefinite hiatus since April 2008, and in November of that year, the band was released by their record label RCA Records at their request to allow them "completefreedom to go through whatever process it would take to accomplish" replacing Weiland.
The release of Slash's self-titled debut solo album and Duff McKagan'saddition to the Jane's Addiction lineup seemed to put future of the band in doubt. However, a few months after joining, McKagan and Jane's Addiction went theirseparate ways. Velvet Revolver still remain optimistic about the band's future, with new songs written, plans to audition singers and reconvene in 2011.
