With their new ‘High Rise’ EP due out next week on Oct. 8, Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington recently hit the late night circuit to perform a new song for the masses. Last night (Oct. 3) on ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,’ STP with Bennington at the helm performed their new track ‘Black Heart’ from their latest collection of work. Watch the video above to check out the performance.
Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington's involvement with Stone Temple Pilots caught everyone by surprise since the moment Bennington first stepped onstage with the band at the 2013 MusiCares MAP Fund benefit.

Linkin Park's DJ Joe Hahn has spoken out on Bennington's STP venture in a new interview.

It's going to be an intriguing fall for Stone Temple Pilots fans if the band's Sunday night (Sept. 1) performance in Los Angeles is any indication.

There probably isn't a person on Planet Earth who would've guessed that Linkin Park's Chester Bennington would replace Scott Weiland as the singer for Stone Temple Pilots.
