The past decade or so has been a rough one for STONE TEMPLE PILOTS. Guitarist Dean DeLeo, Bassist Robert DeLeo and Drummer Eric Kretz dealt with the increasingly erratic behavior of legendary frontman Scott Weiland, only to part ways and team-up with Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington. Then, all hopes for an original lineup reunion were crushed when Weiland died on tour with his solo band, with STP embarking on a search for a new frontman. Then Bennington died earlier this year, putting a particularly dark lineage on the vocal spot in the STP lineup. Now, after reviewing thousands of submissions and conducting in-person auditions, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS has emerged with a new singer… one from an unlikely place: Michigan. After making their refreshed live debut in Los Angeles this week, STP’s first new music with frontman Jeff Gutt has arrived. Listen to “Meadow” below, and see if you agree with me that it’s capturing the classic STP vibe while charging into a new era…

The band will be releasing new music and performing live shortly. Their first major festival of 2018 has been announced, with Welcome to Rockville locked in for April. Check out http://www.stonetemplepilots.com/ for more!
