Stone Temple Pilots REUNITE!
Stone Temple Pilots will reform for an American tour this summer. Less than a week after frontman Scott Weiland told fans in Florida of his plans to reunite STP, the band announced a handful of shows.
The news was released by Weiland's Velvet Revolver bandmate Slash. Full details of the reunion tour have yet to be announced.
STP split in 2002 but the break-up wasn't made official until 2003 when guitarist Dean DeLeo revealed, "It's time to move on to other things. Life and personalities and brotherhood took its course."
Weiland went onto to form Velvet Revolver with the former Guns 'N Roses star later that year.
And despite missing a Velvet Revolver show at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah over the weekend, Weiland has no plans to leave his new group.
Revolver dates are set until April and Slash tells Billboard.com there are plans afoot for a third album.
