Grunge rockers debut new song with Chester Bennington.
Stone Temple Pilots minus Scott Weiland have teamed up with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington to record a new song called "Out Of Time".
They debuted it live at KROQ Weenie Roast. And the song rocks, or as Triple M's Higgo so succintly put it: "great f***in' song".
While Triple M's Becko exclaimed: "This is great, just sounds like vintage STP! Love Chester’s vocals."
According to the band members, Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz, when it came time to thinking of a replacement for Scott Weiland, Bennington was at the top of the list.
“Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time,” said Dean DeLeo.
“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.”
“I’ve loved STP since I was 13 years old and they’ve had a huge influence on me,” explained Bennington.
“When the opportunity came up to do something creative with them, I jumped at the chance. The guys in Linkin Park have been incredibly supportive of me undertaking this project while I’ve continued to work on new music with LP.”
