Stone Temple Pilots are continuing to work with Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington.  They will play a string of dates this Fall and are looking to release an EP of new music.

Bennington and Stone Temple Pilots surprised a lot of fans in May when they released a song and performed a handful of shows together.  Earlier in the year, Stone Temple Pilots fired original frontman Scott Weiland.

Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots are currently locked in a legal fight.

The closest Stone Temple Pilots will come to Charlotte is Columbia, South Carolina on September 20.  Scott Weiland will play the Fillmore in Charlotte on August 18.

Stone Temple Pilots will play several shows with Filter on the tour.  Filter's Richard Patrick formerly was in Army of Anyone with the DeLeo brothers of Stone Temple Pilots.  He recently shared some candid thoughts with us on Weiland, "Scott's sick.  He needs help...Coming from my experience you need to hit a bottom and if he doesn't feel the bottom, he's never going to understand what's happening and I think that, hopefully, this is a wake up call for him."
