Stone Temple Pilots Announce First Tour With New Singer

Stone Temple Pilots

This will be the first time Stone Temple Pilots will tour with new lead singer Chester Bennington in tow! The rockers launch a 15-date tour across North America this fall beginning September 4th in Pennsylvania at the Sands Bethlehem Events Center and concludes November 1st in Biloxi, Mississippi at Hard Rock Live.

Along with Filter providing support on many upcoming gigs, Motley Crue are also expect to make an appearance on September 13th. Pre-sales for VIP packages were made available today, and general admission tickets will go on sale July 19th via STP's website.

The Pilots plan to drop their new EP through their own label, and Rober DeLeo recently said in a statement, "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." This is also the first batch of songs the band have written since publicly firing their original vocalist, Scott Weiland, back in February.
