Stone Temple Pilots
Stone Temple Pilots have undergone a significant change in 2013, incorporating Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington into the fold while a legal dispute with their estranged vocalist Scott Weiland continues. While disruption is never ideal, Stone Temple Pilots have made the most of the situation, just releasing their new EP 'High Rise' and already generating the chart-topping single, 'Out of Time.'
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. The vocalist has stayed the course with STP ever since, but what do the other members of Linkin Park think about their singer's decision? Linkin Park's DJ Joe Hahn has spoken out on Bennington's STP venture in a new interview.
The unlikely pairing of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington stepping in to perform vocal duties for Stone Temple Pilots after Scott Weiland was unceremoniously fired from the lineup was a shocker to the music community, to say the least. Let’s face it: none of us saw that one coming, right?
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. The revamped rock outfit welcomed a handful of fans and media out to their San Fernando Valley rehearsal space for a brief run through of material in advance of their fall tour.
