Stone Temple Pilots and Chester Bennington plot tour and EP

07.15.13 6 years ago

We know one person who”s probably not too happy about this: Stone Temple Pilots and the group”s new lead singer, Linkin Park”s Chester Bennington, will release an EP this fall  and embark on a North American tour in September.

After parting ways with original lead singer, Scott Weiland, earlier this year, STP members Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz recruited Bennington to perform with them at the KROQ Los Angeles” multi-artist Weenie Roast in May.

STP then filed suit against Weiland demanding that he stop using the STP name and that he stop singing STP songs. Weiland countersued.

But in the meantime, Bennington, who remains in Linkin Park, has been in the studio with the three STP members to record the EP, which will include their first single together and current active rock hit “Out Of Time.”

STP will release the EP this fall on its own label.

The tour, with Filter as the opening act,  kicks off Sept. 4 at the Sands Bethlehem (Pa.) Events Center and runs through Nov. 1 in Biloxi, Miss. The group will play new material, as well as STP”s hits.
