Stone Temple Pilots will embark on their first tour with new singer Jeff Gutt this spring. “We are thrilled to see all of you and share in the music that belongs to all of us,” Stone Temple Pilots’ Dean DeLeo said in a statement.
Gutt, 41, made his live debut at a warm-up show in Los Angeles last month. He replaces Stone Temple Pilots’ original singer Scott Weiland, who died as a result of an accidental overdose in 2015. Weiland was previously replaced by Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, who took his own life earlier this year.
“If there wasn’t new music I don’t know that we’d really have a leg to stand on, but we’re sitting on 14 new songs right now,” guitarist Dean DeLeo says. “We wanted to have that ability to create new music and to go on and make more records and more music that we can just pile into the STP canon.” The new album, he adds, “is very STP. It goes from acoustic-based, beautiful things to really hard-hitting, heavy moments. We just have that ability to not be in one place, musically. So this record is just like any other STP record in that regard.”
