Stone Temple Pilots announce North American tour and new EP

Stone Temple Pilots with new singer Chester Bennington (of Linkin Park) have announced the fall release of a new EP and a North American tour to support it.

STP members Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz made their live debut with Bennington at KROQ's Weenie Roast in May; since their surprise performance, the band has been busy working on new music for an upcoming EP.

In an effort to take control of the way they will be delivering new music in the future, STP will release the upcoming EP via their own label, with distribution through ADA (Alternative Distribution Alliance).

"We're very ambitious about the future of making music," said bassist Robert DeLeo. "The process and intention of creating it is so much more gratifying. We've been writing new material and visiting songs from our early albums. It all feels new again and we're excited to get out and play a solid set of songs both old and new."

The debut single from the new STP lineup, "Out Of Time", is currently Top 5 at Active Rock radio.

STP will kick off a North American tour – with openers Filter – on September 4 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Pre-sale for VIP packages that include collectible merchandise and a meet-and-greet with the band are on sale tomorrow, July 16 at 10:00 a.m. General-admission tickets will go on sale Friday, July 19 here.
