Following the release of their 2008 Wasted Heart EP, DUFF MCKAGAN’s LOADED will release Sick on April 7th (Century Media Records). This marks the first full-length studio album in eight years from the band Duff formed in 1998 and grouped up with again in 2001. This is an all-out assault of pure rock and punk-infused fury that pulls no punches. Loaded encompasses what rock n’ roll should be all about, creating memorable songs with infectious hooks.
The album’s first single “Flatline” is now streaming at www.playboy.com (where Duff also pens the weekly “Duffonomics” financial column. In addition to his new blog on Playboy.com–where McKagan says he hopes to “shed some no-nonsense light on day-to-day money issues”–DUFF has penned a two-page “Success” column in the new March issue of Playboy magazine. He also continues to contribute his “Reverb” column to the Seattle Weekly.
