Update: The album will be self-titled.
We’ve talked about it for months — for over a year now — but the Stone Temple Pilots have finally finished its sixth album. But, you know this already. After all, we reported that early this week… however, now we have a tracklist and an official release date.
Set for release on May 25th, the 12-track, yet-to-be-titled album features all original members (sort of a rarity these days) and promises to be “a great STP record.” It looks like Robert DeLeo might be right in his predictions, too. As Classic Rock reports that there was a recent private listening party in New York, “where the reaction was said to have been very positive.” It can’t be any worse than Scott Weiland’s last outing.
Until then, the boys will gear up for the release by hitting the road in March. The nine-date trek will kick off with an appearance an appearance at South by Southwest on March 18th and has the band visiting cities of the mid-west in the days that follow. Additional activity is expected this summer, including an appearance at Download Festival and a potential new STP-curated festival!
