Stone Temple Pilots are continuing onward with Chester Bennington as their lead singer. The Linkin Park frontman will join the band for an upcoming leg of U.S. tour dates spanning most of September. STP also has a one-off date scheduled in Biloxi, MS for November 1st, which will no doubt fuel rumors of an appearance at Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans.

According to Rolling Stone, the dates will come in support of an new EP featuring Bennington on vocals, which will see release this fall.

All this comes as the band is entangled in a legal battle with ex-singer Scott Weiland. The remaining members of STP sued Weiland over the singer’s use of the band’s name and catalog in his solo tour. Weiland has since filed a countersuit seeking over $5 million in damages.
