According to Billboard.com, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' "Between the Lines" made the largest positional gain in the 10-month history of Billboard's Rock Songs chart, as the lead single from the band's self-titled reunion album rocketed 40-2. The song improved from 2 to 11.8 million audience impressions (up 496%) on 146 stations.On Alternative Songs, the track bolted 39-9, marking the second-greatest positional increase in the chart's archives. Only DAVE MATTHEWS BAND's "Don't Drink the Water" (36-5 in 1998) and the SMASHING PUMPKINS' "The Everlasting Gaze" (40-9 in 2000) made bigger week-to-week jumps. On Mainstream Rock, "Between the Lines" vaulted 36-7 for the chart's biggest positional leap since VAN HALEN's "The Dream Is Over" soared 46-15 on the chart dated February 29, 1992. STONE TEMPLE PILOTS bassist Robert DeLeo told Billboard.com on Friday (March 26) that the band recorded their upcoming album in an unusual manner: DeLeo, his brother and guitarist Dean and drummer Eric Kretz recorded the music in one studio, while singer Scott Weiland worked on his vocals in his own separate facility. DeLeo said about the arrangement, "Scott wasn't really there for the creation of these songs, musically. We kind of guessed our way through it . . . The songs that were sent over to [Weiland] were pretty much in a completed demo form with a scratch melody on there, and Scott has the option to use the melody or not." DeLeo told The Pulse of Radio that STP was able to record this way because of their 20-plus year history together. "There's a certain understanding you have with each other at that point, that you know what the person is gonna like and dislike, and you know what's gonna work," he said. "And, you know, even though it is challenging, you're not in the same room, I think we've gotten to that point where it's a great achievement being able to write and produce and do this record the way we did." The group's self-titled sixth album, its first all-new effort since 2001's "Shangri-La-Dee-Da", arrives on May 25. More extensive road work is planned for later this summer and beyond.
