Chester Bennington Teaming up With STP
Last night’s (May 18) KROQ Weenie Roast featured a surprise performance by Stone Temple Pilots, who used the event to reveal their new part-time singer: Linkin Park‘s Chester Bennington. The foursome played a mini-set that included the brand-new track ‘Out of Time,’ our sister site Loudwire reports, and speaking with the L.A. radio station, STP guitarist Dean DeLeo dished on the nature of the partnership.
“Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time,” DeLeo said, explaining how Bennington came to replace troubled Stone Temple Pilots founder Scott Weiland, who split with the band earlier this year. “We know Linkin Park will always be his priority, but we thought it would be cool to try something together. We managed to find the time to record a song and we’re all really happy with the result.”
