After splitting with his wife, Liv Tyler, earlier this year, British rocker Royston Langdon may have a new gig.

The Spacehog frontman, 36, is currently auditioning in L.A. to be Velvet Revolver's lead singer, following Scott Weiland's drama-filled exit from the band in April, according to Entertainment Weekly.

A source says that Langdon and the current members of Velvet Revolver hit it off.

"They all got along great," says the source. "It was really a refreshing change for the band."

Although the band's management wouldn't confirm whether an offer was made to Langdon, instead saying that they're still looking at other singers, a source at RCA – Velvet Revolver's record label – says that the Brit is "definitely in the mix."

In May, Langdon and Tyler, 31, separated after five years of marriage. They have a son Milo, 3.
