STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Settle Legal Issues With SCOTT WEILAND, Return To Original Name

Stone Temple Pilots have settled their legal issues with former frontman Scott Weiland, and can now drop “With Chester Bennington” from their name. Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington joined the band in May 2013, replacing Weiland, who was fired from STP earlier that year. The band will now go by the original name, Stone Temple Pilots.

Stone Temple Pilots recently announced a spring tour, kicking off April 8th in Seattle, WA. To purchase tickets go to VIP Packages available through Live Nation and Ticketmaster.

$1 per ticket will be donated to Music For Relief, a nonprofit organization dedicated to disaster relief and environmental protection. Funds raised will support long term Hurricane Sandy recovery in New Jersey including housing assistance and home repairs, mental health and social services as well as tree planting.

The new lineup of the band featuring Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo, Eric Kretz and Chester Bennington, was revealed in May 2013 at KROQ’s annual Weenie Roast. Their debut single “Out Of Time” reached #1 on both the Active and Mainstream Rock charts.  

The band is currently in the studio working on new music. Check out a video message below.
