Stone Temple Pilots and Chester Bennington Releasing EP

Stone Temple Pilots and their new frontman Chester Bennington of Linkin Park have announced the release of their new EP, so when the group hits the road early next month for their North American tour they will have more than one new song available to perform.

The new group will be following up the release of their debut single "Out of Time" with the release of a new five song EP on October 8th and it will be released under the band name of "Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington".

STP's Dean DeLeo reveals in a new interview that the new EP will feature the group's debut song "Out of Time," as well as four brand new songs. Various reports state that one of the new tracks will be called "Tomorrow".

Dean DeLeo also spoke about what it is like to work with Bennington. When asked about Bennington being an avowed STP fans he responded, "It's funny. When we first spoke, he was shocked at how long it took to get the call. I discovered this later after we decided to do this together.

"...Chester's bursting with ideas. He brought in so much. It's almost like he was bringing in a song every day. It's like, 'Hey man, let's just stick to these four!' [Laughs] There's actually a song on here that Chester wrote musically, lyrically, and melodically."

As we previously reported, the band will be launching a North American tour next week. The trek will feature support from Filter and will be kicking off on September 4th in Bethlehem, Pa.
