Last week we heard the news that Scott Weiland was dropped from Stone Temple Pilots, a band he formed and fronted for years. The announcement came in a one sentence press release just as Weiland was set to start a solo tour. Now the front man tells TMZ that no one can be fired from the band because STP won’t be STP without everyone, including Weiland, so says their contract. He also says it was all a publicity stunt to boost ticket sales for future concerts. In an impromptu airport interview with TMZ, Weiland also batted away subastance abuse problems.
Working on new album
Motorhead is in the studio hammering out a new album, which will be the band’s 21st studio album. A pic posted online shows bassist and front man Lemmy laying down some bass riffs for the upcoming attempt. They apparently have 11 songs ready to lay down. Expect to grab up a new Motorhead album sometime this summer.
Teaser trailer released
Stone Sour has released a trailer for the forthcoming animated video of “Do Me A Favor,” the first single from the upcoming House of Gold and Bones Part 2. The 45 second video posted online (watch below or at this link) shows a man walking into a church only to find out he’s being followed by a horde of the undead. What looks to be a mixture of live action mixed with various animated graphics, the video appears to be a bit on the creepy side. Get more info online at HouseofGoldandBones.com.
