Since Stone Temple Pilots replaced Scott Weiland with Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington back in May, the band has been plenty busy, but now it looks like they’re about to get a whole lot busier!
The reformed group have revealed that they have a new EP in the works, and have also announced plans for a North American tour. Both are slated for the fall.
According to the band’s official website, the EP will be released through their own label in partnership with Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA).
Founding member Robert DeLeo stated of the band’s latest project, “We’re very ambitious about the future of making music. The process and intention of creating it is so much more gratifying.”“We’ve been writing new material and visiting songs from our early albums,” DeLeo continues on the STP website. “It all feels new again and we’re excited to get out and play a solid set of songs both old and new.”STP will kick off their upcoming tour dates with opening act Filter on September 4 in Bethlehem, PA, and wrap up on November 1 in Biloxi, MS.
