Stone Temple Pilots

Stone Temple Pilots or often known as STP is an American rock band comprising of Scott Weiland (lead vocals), brothers Robert DeLeo (bass guitar, vocals) and Dean DeLeo (guitar), and Eric Kretz (drums, percussion). Since their formation twenty-four years ago all hope was lost when the band disbanded back in 2003 but then something happened as would any band disbandment - STP reformatted and reformed once again in 2008 and has been kicking it old school ever since.

Let us back track a bit, during the time when STP were taking the world by storm frontman Scott Weiland was dealing with drug offenses causing multiple concert cancellations band separations. These setbacks resulted in the creations of various side projects, by each of the individual band members, (The Magnificent Bastards, Talk Show, Army of Anyone, and Velvet Revolver) with the Weiland himself releasing two solo albums; while percussionist Eric Kretz would go on to launch the Bomb Shelter Studios in Los Angeles. As the years progressed the band's separation in 2003 lasted five years but bounced back with the reunited formation of April 2008 thus the rebirth of STP was underway.

Now that the past is dead and gone and the future is upon them the band's sixth studio album, a self-titled release it’s the first all-new effort since 2001's "Shangri-La-Dee-Da". With that amongst us, all that’s left is to have a listen in… Opening up with "Between The Lines", the debut hit single sweeping the radio waves and internet highway, STP has rebuilt their musical talents with this more modern hard rock that never seems to want to quit. For instance "Hazy Daze", continues this pattern of hard rock with raw vocal shouts with powerful guitar rhythms it keeps the music fresh. “Fast As I Can”, takes STP’s style up a notch having it progress even further with a more matured sound and unique style it’s recreated what Stone Temple Pilots were known to established ever so long ago.
