hahninator Posted July 17, 2013 Share Posted July 17, 2013 Dean and Robert DeLeo from STP recently called in to WAAF Boston and talked with them about Stone Temple Pilots, Chester and more. Listen to the full interview here. Here is what they had to say: - In regards to how they write new music, most STP songs start out on acoustic guitars and evolve from there. - They have been talking to Filter for quite a few years about doing a tour together. Both bands are good friends, especially after the Army Of Anyone project. - STP approached Chester about him joining the band, as we already knew. There was no "panic" by the Linkin Park band members because they wish the best for Chester. Chester said that if they wanted to just tour and play the old songs, they shouldn't do it. Both he and STP agreed that it was best to honor the past as well as to write new music and move forward as a band. - They didn't want to create a new band or new band name, they wanted to keep going as STP but make new music with Chester. - There are songs that they weren't able to play live with Scott Weiland that they will play live with Chester. - They are releasing a 5 song EP this fall. - Chester is currently in the studio with them. A song of Dean's was worked on with 'Out Of Time' but wasn't finished, so they are finishing that song and three more. Since a fifth song was not mentioned, we can assume 'Out Of Time' will be on the EP. - Dean said between now and September, they have to finish the EP, they have to rehearse for the tour, Dean is going on tour with Peter Frampton in August, and Linkin Park is recording music right now too, so there are a lot of time constraints on the band. - STP is interested in making a full album, but with time constraints with Linkin Park, family and touring, it's difficult to make a full record right now.
