VELVET REVOLVER have recorded a new song, "Come On, Come In", for the forthcoming "Fantastic Four" film and soundtrack album. Reaching radio June 21, the track was recorded in Raleigh and Cleveland in May during the band's U.S. headlining "Electric Wonderland Show" arena tour. VELVET REVOLVER co-produced the song along with Doug Grean and Nick Raskulinecz. The band felt that the new song they wrote lent itself perfectly to the film.
"Fantastic Four - The Album" will be issued July 5 on Wind-up Records, in conjunction with Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Enterprises, who are releasing the action-packed movie July 8.
For the "Come On, Come In" video, VELVET REVOLVER joined forces with director Wayne Isham in Los Angeles before the band launched their in-progress European tour. Inspired by the adrenaline-driven visuals and conceptual theme of the "Fantastic Four" movie, the video combines the raw energy of a VELVET REVOLVER performance, with graphic transitions between movie footage and Dali-esque individualized abstract portraits of each band member.
Since releasing their debut album "Contraband" on RCA in June 2004, VELVET REVOLVER have become rock's most exciting and successful new band. "Contraband" has now sold over three million copies worldwide, earned a Grammy award, shattered records and garnered massive critical acclaim.
"Contraband" debuted at #1 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling over 250,000 copies. Notably, this marks the best-ever debut for a new rock artist in the SoundScan era.
