STONE TEMPLE PILOTS/ex-VELVET REVOLVER singer Scott Weiland has released the following statement via his official web site:

"Barack Obama is the leader, the listener and the visionary with international respect to take us from the depths of where we are today and bring us to a new place where dreams are made; that place is called America. A long time ago, these same dreams, same visions brought us out of a similar darkness and united us together. More to comeā€¦

"It's our imperfections and our willingness to persevere that makes us stronger."

Weiland will release his second solo effort, "Happy in Galoshes", on November 25 through his own Softdrive label, with a single called "Missing Cleveland" headed to radio two weeks earlier. The vocalist plans to hit the road behind the new disc in January.
