Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo is sharing demos from the band’s 2013 EP “High Rise.”
The project delivered the debut of singer Chester Bennington from Linkin Park, who joined the band after original frontman Scott Weiland was fired in February of 2013, leading to a series of public statements and lawsuits by both parties.
DeLeo has posted material from demos for three tracks on the EP, including “Out Of Time”, “Cry Cry” and “Same On The Inside”, as well as "The Hotel On The Hill."
“Howdy ya’ll,” says DeLeo. “I thought I'd start these new ‘memo:demos’ to share some audio clips that are recorded on my phone which include anything from alternate solos, songs from the point in time of their conception and some new ditties. Have fun and stay tuned for more.”
“High Rise” debuted at No. 24 on the US Billboard 200 chart following first week sales of 12,000 copies.
Stone Temple Pilots are currently in the studio working on their debut album with Bennington, who recently suffered a leg injury that cancelled Linkin Park’s North American tour and resulted in surgery.
