Stone Temple Pilots have an upcoming US tour and speculation was rife over who would take the place of ousted singer Scott Weiland, but I honestly don’t think anybody was expecting the following to happen.
It was a bit of a shock for us here at Musicscramble when we heard the news today that not only is the Stone Temple Pilots tour to be fronted by Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington but they have also been in the studio!
The band unveiled their current lineup and their latest song over the weekend, taking the crowd by surprise. In interview Chester later said: “I’ve loved STP since I was 13 years old. When the opportunity came up to so something creative with them I jumped at the chance. The guys in Linkin Park have been incredibly supportive of me undertaking this project while I’ve continued to work on new music with Linkin Park.”
It isn’t clear whether he will be the permanent vocalist for Stone Temple Pilots but we think it is entirely possible that like Myles Kennedy with Alter Bridge and Slash he could have more than one job!
The band released a teaser studio trailer for the song ‘Out of Time’ and to add to the excitement they have released the song for you to listen to also. Click below now and give it a listen.
