Back with their new album, Stone Temple Pilots will be embarking on a series of select European and UK dates this coming June. No Irish dates as of yet. 

The European tour will be in support of the bands seventh, eponymous album, released in March 2018. The first album with the new lead singer, Jeff Gutt.

Despite being one of the best-selling bands of the 1990s with platinum records and a Grammy to its credit, guitarist Dean DeLeo says, “ This new incarnation of STP is focused on what lies ahead. The best way for us to honour our past is to build on it and keep making new music.”

The band does just that on “Stone Temple Pilots”. Straight-ahead rockers like the first single “Meadow” and “Never Enough” channels the gritty guitars and swaggering rhythms that STP perfected on Core (1992), Purple (1994), and No. 4 (1999).

When asked what to expect on the upcoming tour, Robert DeLeo says,” With so much time and experience gone by in life we feel compelled to dig back into a 30-year catalogue and really try to reflect and choose what songs haven’t been performed live. We want to give people who have come to see us in the past a chance to hear something they haven’t heard before at previous STP shows. We want to celebrate this time in lives with our performances.

The album “Stone Temple Pilots” is available now through Rhino.
