STONE TEMPLE PILOTS has spent the last few months working on a new studio album with producer Don Was. According to singer Scott Weiland, the CD should be ready for release sometime in early 2010.
The upcoming release of PILOTS’ sixth studio album and first since 2001’s “Shangri-La-Dee-Da” has been complicated by a contractual dispute between Weiland, drummer Eric Kretz and STP’s label, Atlantic Records.
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS were reactivated in 2008 after a six-year layoff, during which time Weiland recorded two albums with VELVET REVOLVER before being dismissed in April 2008.
Weiland issued a second solo effort, called “Happy In Galoshes”, last November and has been touring on his own behind that release.
They will be playing in our area Dec. 29 at the Hard Rock Live in Biloxi, MS.
