STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' DEAN and ROBERT DeLEO and ERIC KRETZ are looking for a lead singer. LINKIN PARK's CHESTER BENNINGTON most recently sat in for the late SCOTT WEILAND, who left the band in 2013 to start his own group and passed away late last year while on tour from a reported drug overdose (NET NEWS 12/4/15). The trio's letter reads as follows:
"We have been incredibly fortunate to write and perform with some of the finest singers. Much more music awaits and we know the right person is out there to carry on the legacy of our band.
Beginning FEBRUARY 8th, you can submit yourself at www.stonetemplepilots.com. Submit an introduction video that tells the band about yourself and your background, along with a cover of a STP song (instrumental versions provided on the website), upload a photo and brief bio.
Candidates must agree to terms of service, and submissions will be public.
We look forward to seeing “YOU” soon."
