STONE TEMPLE PILOTS bassist Robert DeLeo has revealed via a pair of tweets that the band has spent time this week with LINKIN PARK singer Chester Bennington writing music for their next release.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS have kept a low profile since completing their first full tour with Bennington on the mic last fall.

STP's first foray into the studio with Bennington, an EP called "High Rise", came out last October and yielded the No. 1 single "Out Of Time".

Plans to record a new full-length disc, however, were put on hold late last year so that Bennington could work on a new album with his main band, LINKIN PARK.

Bassist Robert DeLeo told The Pulse Of Radio that STP has used the time constructively when Bennington is not around. "His main concern definitely is LINKIN PARK and, you know, when he's busy with them, it offers Dean [DeLeo, guitar] and Eric [Kretz, drums] and myself some time to really get some new music together. And when he's available, that's when we work, man, and we make the best of that time."

Bennington joined STP last year after the band fired original singer Scott Weiland.

STP and Weiland have launched lawsuits against each other, although the results of both legal actions are pending.
