Chester Bennington is the new lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots! Chester joined the band at KROQ’s Weenie Roast on stage, yesterday, but that’s not all that happened. They have also released a new track, you can download exclusively on radio.com.
In an interview with KROQ STP guitarist Dean DeLeo said:
Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time. 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.
Chester himself told KROQ:
I’ve loved STP since I was 13 years old and they’ve had a huge influence on me. 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.
