STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Frontman Says New Album Will Arrive Next Year

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Scott Weiland tells Billboard.com that "there is another album coming" to follow 2010's self-titled effort. The group plays three shows in South America this month, then Weiland expects his bandmates to start working on new material. "They usually start before me, just getting some rough ideas together and then putting rough ideas down on ProTools with no lyrics and no melody," he explains. "And then I start listening to it and see if it's just a straight-ahead rock 'n' roll record or if it's more of a concept album like [2001's] 'Shangri-La Dee Da' was. Once we decide that, it should go full speed ahead."

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS reunited in 2008 for a successful world tour following a six-year hiatus.

In a 2010 interview STONE TEMPLE PILOTS drummer Eric Kretz said that having enough songs for an album is not a problem, explaining, "There is never a shortage of material. It's just a matter of sifting through it and working with everyone's schedule." He also said that the group is "looking at . . . trying new ideas of how to present music, especially for downloading."
