SCOTT WEILAND: More Solo Album Details Revealed; Tour Dates Announced

Following the success of his red-hot reunion tour with STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, Scott Weiland has announced the release of his highly-anticipated sophomore album, "Happy In Galoshes", out November 18, 2008 via the artist's label Softdrive Records and distributed by New West Records/ RED/ Sony.

Rocketing to the forefront of the music world in 1992, Scott Weiland has become one of the music world's most highly-respected and prolific artists. As the front man for STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, Weiland has remained a dominant force in rock music since the group's inception. Now with his sophomore solo release Weiland proves that his music and song-writing is as potent and powerful as ever.

"Happy In Galoshes", produced by Scott Weiland and Doug Grean (VELVET REVOLVER, SHERYL CROW, CRYSTAL METHOD), with select tracks recorded by Steve Albini, features a collection of songs that bring a revitalizing sound to Weiland's highly praised and unique musical style. The album also features several guest appearances including Adrian Young, Tony Kanal and Tom Dumont of NO DOUBT, who, along with Grean and Weiland, penned "Paralysis", which features Young on drums. "She's so Cold" was co-written by Gary Beers from INXS. The album also includes other standout tracks such as the dynamic "Missing Cleveland" and the catchy hooks of "Talk About Love".

Scott Weiland plans to tour (see dates below) in support of the release in November following the release of the album, and the completion of the STP's reunion tour, which re-cemented the group's standing as one of the most successful rock groups of all time.
