Stone Temple Pilots and Chester Bennington Plan Tour and Album

07/15/2013
.
Stone Temple Pilots and their new singer Chester Bennington will be embarking on a tour and are already recording songs for a new album, guitarist Dean DeLeo revealed in a new interview.

DeLeo made the revelations during an interview with Nikki Sixx on the Motley Crue star's radio program Sixx Sense on Friday night. STP will be announcing the tour details today. The show sent over these details from the interview:

DeLeo had the following to say about their tour plans, "We're going to be out for most of the month in September, and I've got kind of a little thing too in late August that I'm really, really thrilled about.

"What an honor, a complete and utter honor, because this man helped put me where I'm at today. Peter Frampton gave me a shot a couple months ago, and I'm going out doing shows with BB King and Pete in late August…STP will be out on the road for most of September…we're going to hop over to Japan in October, and of course, in September is gonna be the show with you guys [speaking about STP's upcoming show with Motley Crue]; we're really excited about that, and of course Jane's Addiction on another bill, and I think there's actually some stuff happening in November and December as well."

Sixx then asked him, "What I really want to talk about is that you guys are going to be making a 7th album and it's going to be with Chester."

DeLeo responded, "Yeah, we're actually at Robert's this very, very moment, cutting some more things. We're chewing on another four songs right now. It's quite nice, man…"

DeLeo also went into details about how STP teamed up with the Linkin Park frontman, "…I was on a European tour, in my room late at night, and I turned on the TV and there's Linkin Park doing this massive festival, and Chester's hittin' it with a Stone Temple Pilots No. 4 shirt on. It really brought a smile to my face and it kinda brought me back to home, I could feel my heart again.

"You know, the first time we met was at a turnstile, waiting for our luggage and I walked up to him and said 'I think I owe you this," and I kissed him on the cheek. We've kinda been friends ever since. I knew he really loved the band, obviously.

"We did some touring together on a Family Values tour around 94' I think, and you know, we hit it off. We spent a lot of time together. And when the time came to think about a singer, we simply reached out to him…when we spoke, he was actually on a European tour, and I was home, and he said 'you know what, man? When I was dating my wife, I said one day, they're going to call me to be in the band.'" More from the show here.
