Last week, organizers of Australia's Soundwave Festivals issued the following: "Due to a scheduling conflict, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS With CHESTER BENNINGTON regretfully has been forced to cancel all tour dates."
STP now check in with a statement: "We regret that, due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, our forthcoming tour dates in Australia, the Middle East and Hawaii have had to be cancelled. An initial statement citing "recording delays" wasn't true - the conflict wasn't related to recording new STP material. We are deeply disappointed to not be able to perform these shows, and look forward to making them up in the future." - Robert, Dean, Eric and Chester
