Stone Temple Pilots Alter Name For ‘High Rise’ Release With Chester Bennington

Stone Temple Pilots will be shaking things up just a little bit in anticipation of their upcoming EP, High Rise, with Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington. As of now, they will be calling themselves, descriptively enough, Stone Temple Pilots With Chester Bennington. Although the group hasn’t spoken officially about the name change, it seems like it could be a response to singer Scott Weiland’s comments about his former bandmates’ decision to replace him. High Rise is due out on October 8. You can purchase a CD and buy concert tickets here….

GUEST BLOG: Buddy Up With Bands

At some point as a music lover or a musician, you’re inevitably going to be part of some shows with sparse crowds, especially when bands start getting further away from their home town.

ALBUM REVIEW: Living With Lions ‘Some of My Friends Appear Dead To Me’

Living With Lions needs to tour with Blink-182, and that is a fact. Their EP, Some of My Friends Appear Dead To Me, is everything that Blink’s 2011 release Neighborhoods should have been. However, Living With Lions is far from a carbon-copy of pop-punk icons Blink-182. They’re an entirely different band that give a new feeling to what it means to be “pop-punk.” Please follow and like us:
