Usually when a band gets a new lead singer it's bad news. Just ask Alice In Chains how they've enjoyed the last ten years. But in THIS case, I think it's an improvement. Chester Bennington from Linkin Park has been hanging out with a de-heroined STP for the last few months, and now it looks like we're getting an album! Or at least an EP.
The band says their first EP with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington will be called "High Rise," and is scheduled to hit stores on October 8th. The collection will feature five new tracks, including their previously released single "Out of Time" and another new song called "Tomorrow." But before fans get their hands on "High Rise," they can catch the Stone Temple Pilots on the road. The band kicks off a U.S. tour September 4th in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
10 bucks says it's at a fair.
Arctic Monkeys got a little help from an old friend during a recent tour stop in Los Angeles. Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme! NICE! Josh joined Arctic Monkeys during the song "Knee Socks," which closed out the band's set at the Wiltern last week. This is kick ass because Homme also plays on the studio version of the track, which is on the new album "AM." (He plays on the song "One for the Road" as well)
Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner recently returned the favor by singing on the latest Queens of the Stone Age album, "...Like Clockwork."
