Earlier today it was reported that Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland had been effectively terminated from the band. While no further details were given, there was no wiggle room and the message was very clear. However, Weiland has released his own statement where he says that he’s “…not sure how I can be terminated from a band that I founded…”. The full statement can be read below. READ MORE
In a statement on their official Facebook page, rock group Stone Temple Pilots have announced that they have “officially terminated” singer Scott Weiland. There is no further information at this time.
STP’s last album was their 2010 release Stone Temple Pilots. Weiland released a solo album in 2011 entitled The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, which was a Christmas compilation album.
Weiland had long been saying that he was once again the lead singer of rock group Velvet Revolver, but those claims were constantly denied by guitarist Slash. READ MORE
It’s Thursday and it’s almost the weekend. Perhaps the days are dragging just a little too long for you and you need some inspiration to keep on trucking until the sweet glory of Saturday and Sunday descends upon you. Well, look no further, as Metal Injection has put together a fantastic little video of musicians and their on-stage accidental tumbles. My personal favorite is Iron Maiden‘s Bruce Dickinson who falls rather hard on his tuchus only to jam his legs into the air, spread eagle style.
You can get your laugh on below. But tell me, any of you see anything funny happen to a musician while you were at a concert? Tell me a few stories and I’ll share a few of mine! READ MORE
In celebration of the upcoming 20th anniversary of their debut album Core, Stone Temple Pilots will be embarking on a 20-date N. American tour where it is rumored that they will be performing the album in its entirety. There are also rumors that STP will record a new studio album that will see a 2013 release. You can see the full touring schedule below.
STP is also releasing a live DVD entitled Alive In The Windy City on June 26th, which was recorded in Chicago in March of 2010. You can watch a video performance of “Wicked Garden” below. READ MORE
Yesterday I wrote up an article regarding Scott Weiland’s comments that he’d rejoined Velvet Revolver as singer of the band. While it’s true that Weiland made those comments, turns out they might not be 100% accurate to another rather important person who has a small say in the matter. Who is that you might ask? Well, how about Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash? Seems like the guitar legend heard nothing about this and has stated that Weiland is, in fact, “…out of his mind.”
Now, as I mentioned in the previous, now erroneous, article, I wasn’t at all thrilled to hear that Weiland had rejoined VR. So hearing that this isn’t the case is just a joyous moment for me. Now I just hope that a singer is selected sometime before peace in the Middle East occurs. Is that too much to ask? READ MORE
After a nasty breakup in 2008, Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots) and the rest of the Velvet Revolver crew have announced their reconciliation along with plans to later this year record a third studio album and embark on a tour. Weiland has stated that he will still front STP and Slash will still embark on a tour promoting his solo album.
I’m sorry, but after all the singer tryouts and rumors on who would be the next frontman (hell, it could’ve even been frontwoman for all I care), I find that I’m actually kinda irritated that things fell so “simply” back into place. To be honest, I feel almost cheated. I would’ve loved to have seen VR explode back onto the scene with a fresh face as singer. Instead, this is what we get…the same thing that we had before. Well, consider me UNenthusiastic about this announcement. READ MORE
When you’ve got a band that features members from Type O Negative, Life of Agony, and Biohazard, you know you’re in for a treat. I mean, with names like that behind A Pale Horse Named Death, there’s no way it can go wrong, right? Well, check after the jump to see if that statement holds true.
The “Ten Creepy Videos Just In Time For Halloween” list was a big hit with you readers. However, as many of you know, there aren’t just ten creepy music videos out there. So, I went ahead and put together another list because this holiday season is just too damn cheery for me. I’ll start you off nice and mellow with The Cure below, but after the jump, there are nine more creepy videos for your viewing pleasure (displeasure?).
The Cure – Lullaby
I have a serious problem with spiders, so the thought of waking up coated in spider webs is nauseating. Also, Robert Smith being eaten by a giant vagina is something to note.
Vancouver band Art of Dying have released a lyric video for ‘Die Trying’, which you can check below. Art of Dying is the first act to be signed to Intoxication/Reprise Records, which was founded by Disturbed members David Draiman and Dan Donegan. The band has just finished recording their debut album which should hit streets in early 2011. The album was produced by Howard Benson (10 Years, 3 Doors Down, Seether) and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (Flyleaf, Stone Temple Pilots, Slipknot).
A reunited Stone Temple Pilots have officially announced details for their upcoming 12 track comeback album. The self-titled record will hit stores May 25th, a week earlier than the rumored date that’s been popping up. This is the first studio album from STP since 2001′s Shangri-La Dee Da, and I can’t wait.
Here’s the tracklisting,
1) Between the Lines
2) Take a load off
3) Huckleberry Crumble
4) Hickory Dichotomy
5) Dare if You Dare
7) Hazy Daze

Corey Taylor recently sat down and talked about the new Stone Sour album which is in hopes of a Summer 2010 release he had this to say. ….read on for the video READ MORE
Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots told Spin.com “we just finished the last two songs at my home studio, and we’re going through the editing process and getting everything sounding tasty. A gentleman by the name of Chris Lord-Alge, who actually mixed a song of ours back in early 2000 called ‘All in the Suit That You Wear’, will mix the new album.” The album is due out sometime this year.
TheGlobeAndMail.com caught up with Joe Perry and he had this to say about the future of Aerosmith, “Right now, we’re talking about getting another singer to fill in for Steven. I don’t know what’s going on with him, but as far as Aerosmith goes, we’re going to find somebody to sing.” He also added ” “I think it would make more sense, with a band like Aerosmith, to get somebody who the fans might recognize. There’s no sense going out there and being an Aerosmith clone band. In order for both parties to get something out of this, to move things along musically, it’s important to get somebody who’s a legitimate headliner on their own.”
Hatebreed has announced the first three shows of the Black Procession tour with Machine Head have been postponed due to frontman Jamey Jasta falling ill. These shows will be rescheduled for mid-April time. He had this to say on the matter “I feel terrible to have to miss these first 3 shows but I need this time to heal up to make sure I will be 100%.” READ MORE
If you’ve been waiting for some new Stone Temple Pilots since 2001′s Shangri-La Dee Da, we’ve got some good news for you. Scott Weiland caught up with Spinner “We’re almost finished,” he said of the eagerly awaited Don Was-produced album. “There will probably be 11 songs on the record and we have nine completed already. Then you have to have B-sides for Japan, the UK and the rest of Europe, so we’ll probably record 14 songs total.”
He also commented on the recording process and what it’s like to be back with his former band-mates. “It’s always been easy. We have a method that we use and it’s pretty basic,” Weiland says. “For the most part, Robert and Dean [DeLeo] write the instrumental riffs and then amongst the three of us we arrange the songs and then I write all the melodies and the lyrics.”
The new album is expected to release in 2010. READ MORE
