Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready and ex-Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver bass player Duff McKagan have begun working with Walking Papers, a new Seattle band launched by former Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin and longtime Seattle musician Jeff Angell. McKagan plays bass on the band's entire debut disc, while McCready contributes lead guitar solos. The record is due out in October and the first single, "Your Secret's Safe With Me," is streaming at the band's Facebook page.

Martin and McCready previously played together in Mad Season, alongside late Alice In Chains singer Layne Staley. The band is currently being reactivated with new vocals being recorded over tracks originally laid down for an abandoned second Mad Season album.

McKagan was born and raised in Seattle and played in a punk band there called 10 Minute Warning before migrating to Los Angeles and joining Guns.

McCready and the rest of Pearl Jam are also working on their 10th studio album, which should be out sometime in 2013.
