Stone Temple Pilots ‘Unsure’ When Hiatus Will End


Stone Temple Pilots discussed their touring hiatus for the last 2 years in a new Guitar World interview.

“We’re still trying to figure that out. These are interesting times. The people that are in this business of entertainment are the last to kind of shove off on what we used to be doing. I think we’re still trying to figure that out,” he repeated. “I think the world is still trying to figure that out. So, we’re kind of at the mercy of the hands of this pandemic and seeing where this all takes us. I’m hopeful — to see what’s going to happen here. And hopefully see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

He said he’d be interested in touring STP’s 2020 album Perdida, “I would love to. But I think just getting it out and making those emotions and everything in the songs was like therapy.

“It was pleasing to just complete those as pieces of music and get them out. I don’t think we were looking to win Grammys. I think it was just a matter of getting that stuff out and getting it off your heart, mind and soul.

“But yeah, it would be great to try to tour that and make that into something. I think people would really enjoy that. I would love to tour that.”
