STONE TEMPLE PILOTS with Chester Bennington have announced they'll be hitting the road with their new lineup. The tour kicks off September 4 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, with several North America dates to follow. Support on the dates will come from FILTER.

Pre-sale for VIP packages that include collectible merchandise and a meet-and-greet with the band are on sale tomorrow, July 16 at 10:00 a.m. General-admission tickets will go on sale Friday, July 19 at this location.

STP members Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz made their live debut with Chester Bennington at KROQ's Weenie Roast in May. Since their surprise performance, the band has been busy working on new music for an upcoming EP to be released this fall.

In an effort to take control of the way they will be delivering new music in the future, STP will release the upcoming EP via their own label, with distribution through ADA (Alternative Distribution Alliance).

"We're very ambitious about the future of making music," said Robert DeLeo. "The process and intention of creating it is so much more gratifying."

The debut single from the new STP lineup, "Out Of Time", is currently Top 5 at Active Rock radio and climbing fast.

"We've been writing new material and visiting songs from our early albums," says Robert. "It all feels new again and we're excited to get out and play a solid set of songs both old and new."
