Stone Temple Pilots Announce New Tour, Tease Album

Stone Temple Pilots

Stone Temple Pilots will be hitting the road in 2018 for the first time since announcing their new singer Jeff Gutt back in November. Gutt won the job after initially having his music introduced to bassist Robert DeLeo in the summer of 2016.

“The guy’s through and through a great singer, and he’s a good dude, which was definitely one of the boxes that had to be checked off,” guitarist Dean DeLeo told Billboard. “When we started getting shoulder to shoulder and started writing with him and preparing for a new record, he didn’t have the gig at the time but it was very evident he had a very good sensibility of what the song needed and what the song wanted, and that’s what really, really interested us. We kept throwing stuff at him; We were like, ‘Are you OK, man? Are you fried?’ ‘No!’ The guy wrote melodies to, like, seven songs in an afternoon, right on the spot riffin’ ’em out. It was impressive.”

The band will have a fourteen-date tour starting in Santa Clarita, California on March 2nd and wrapping up April 29th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. They’ll also be appearing on May 20th at Rock on the Range in Ohio. DeLeo also says STP has about fourteen new songs ready for a new album he describes as “very STP.”
