Stone Temple Pilots have a new frontman
Rockers Stone Temple Pilots will unveil their new vocalist on November 14th. They’ll introduce the frontman at an invitation-only event in Hollywood.
Talk of the group’s new member has been talked about for months. One-time X Factor contestant Jeff Gutt and vocalist John Borja are considered the front-runners. Brothers and bandmates Dean and Robert DeLeo have said they waded through 15,000 applications from wannabe singers.
The upcoming gig at The Troubadour in West Hollywood will be STP’s first since they staged a one-off reunion performance with the late Chester Bennington in March, 2016.
The group has been without a singer since Bennington quit the group in 2015. He stepped in to replace Scott Weiland, who was fired by the band in 2013.
The group is currently promoting the 25th anniversary reissue of Stone Temple Pilots’ debut album, Core.
