Chester Bennington Says: ” Stone Temple Pilots Plans More New Music “
Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington recently teamed up with Stone Temple Pilots, following the band’s firing of former frontman Scott Weiland.
Bennington tells Rolling Stone that this is not just a musical fling. “When you get together and put a new piece in, there’s a whole different energy. For us the creative juices have just been flowing – we’ve been writing, we have tons of great ideas,” explained Bennington. “Next week we’re going back in the studio and hammering out some more music.”
He also addressed the group’s album plans, “We don’t have a label,” he said. “Everything we’re doing is on our own, so we’re just taking it one track at a time. We would love to sit down and hammer out a record, but the reality is we’re gonna make music, we’re gonna make a lot of it, and we’re gonna be in a position to release a single at a time, go out and really give people music the way they want to get it,” he said.
“It is a good position to be in, and for us, all we care about is going out, making the legacy as great as it needs to be, as great as people expect it to be, and coming out with new music that lives up to that standard.”
