Stone Temple Pilots To Recreate Grunge Classic On New Album


Stone Temple Pilots performed on MTV Unplugged in 1993, and now the band are recording an acoustic album, nearly over 25 years after the iconic show.

Stone Temple Pilots frontman Jeff Gutt has told WRIF‘s Screamin’ Scott that the band is working on “acoustic record right now.” The record, which will feature “some extra musicians and some extra parts and pieces,” will be recorded later in the year. “I’m not sure how long it’s gonna be yet,” Jeff said. “We’re just getting into it, the writing of it, and we’re gonna be recording it here in little spurts, when we can. And it’s gonna be awesome, man. It’s gonna be a totally different side of STP.”

Stone Temple Pilots released a new self-titled album in 2018, their first album with Jeff Gutt, and their first full length album since the band’s last self-titled album with Scott Weiland in 2010.

Gutt discussed the 2018 STP album with WGRD, “It was full freedom, but I felt the responsibility of making sure it was an STP record at the end of the day. ‘Cause my whole thing was helping them continue their journey. And I feel like it was less about me; it was more about honoring Scott [Weiland] and honoring Chester [Bennington] and everyone that has ever been involved in STP and making sure that it just kept going the way it should.”
