Bassist Duff McKagan told Launch that the EP is aimed at giving fans a taste of the new record before the band hits the European festival circuit in June. "You know, you would like for people to know your material before you play it. So we're gonna put out an EP — we convinced the record company — we're gonna put out a CD/EP with, you know, extra, like, video footage of South America and stuff on it. And we're gonna put a cover of 'Psycho Killer' that we did on there, just some extra stuff."
"Libertad" will be released on July 3 in two formats: a CD version, which will also include the documentary, and a CD/DVD version, which will feature a bonus DVD with a 30-minute documentary about the 2007 South American tour.
