In a new Twitter conversation with Alternative Nation reporter Doug McCausland, former Velvet Revolver guitarist Dave Kushner indicated that the band did record “The House Is Alive.” The song has been a long speculated about track since the band were rumored to be recording the song in 2006 for the film Monster House. It is one of the few songs from in between the Contraband and Libertad eras. Velvet Revolver recorded other songs for films as well, including a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Money” in 2003 for The Italian Job, “Set Me Free” for The Hulk in 2003, and “Come On, Come In” in 2005 for Fantastic Four.
Doug tweeted, “@davekushner66 Watching Monster House with the family… just wondering, does a recorded version of VR’s ‘The House Is Alive’ actually exist??”
Kushner responded, “I think so.”
Slash reportedly fell asleep during a band screening of Monster House. Most of Velvet Revolver’s unreleased material and B-sides surfaced during the band’s initial run from 2003 to 2008, as they released many B-sides and bonus tracks for albums. The band do have unreleased material from when they auditioned Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor to replace Scott Weiland.
I think so.
