Lead Singer Applications Flood Velvet Revolver's Mail
Weiland was axed from the group last month and the band are currently looking for a new singer to take his place.
Guitarist Slash recently unveiled plans to launch a website dedicated to auditioning hopefuls - and although a site is not yet up and running, the group have been bombarded with thousands of demo tapes from wannabe singers.
Drummer Matt Sorum insists they haven't yet found the person for the job yet and it is a long and tedious process sifting through all of the applications.
He tells Blabbermouth.net, "It's coming along. People are sending stuff in. The first time we were looking for a singer it was a little tougher, 'cause people didn't really know what we were doing musically, I guess.
"So this time it's gotten out of control, especially with the internet and things like that, we've got just thousands and thousands of people coming at us with, you know, auditions."
Velvet Revolver dismissed Weiland following a series of public disputes on April 1. Weiland has since announced a summer tour with his former band Stone Temple Pilots.
