Long in the works, Stone Temple Pilots has revealed their full plans for their next album and tour to support it. Perdida is an unplugged album and now you can hear the first single ‘Fare Thee Well’ right now at the link below. The band will embark on a huge acoustic tour with tickets going on sale this Friday, December 6th. Perdida will be available on February 7 on CD and vinyl as well as from digital outlets and streaming services.
Perdida, the band’s eighth studio album, features guitarist Dean DeLeo, bassist Robert DeLeo, drummer Eric Kretz and vocalist Jeff Gutt, who joined Stone Temple Pilots in 2017. The band produced the album and recorded the majority of it earlier this year at Kretz’s Bomb Shelter Studio.
Dean says the album’s title (Spanish for loss) foreshadows its somber mood.
Gutt commented: “I had to let myself be as vulnerable writing the lyrics as Dean and Robert were writing the music.”
Robert DeLeo commented: “I’ve always loved how different instruments can accentuate a song in unexpected ways. Working with other musicians on this album was such a joy because it gave us a rare opportunity to hear our songs through someone else’s ears.”
Kretz commented: “We’ll finally get a chance to play songs from our catalog that we’ve never played live, or in some cases, haven’t played live in more than 20 years.”
Robert says the band is looking forward to finally realizing that dream in February 2020. “We’re excited because it’s not only a chance for us to celebrate our new album in a special way, but also everything that’s brought us to this moment.”
Stone Temple Pilots will also launch a 15-date acoustic tour shortly before the album comes out. At each performance, the band willnot only recreate the sound of Perdida, but also reimagine other songs from the group’s multi-platinum catalog.The tour begins February 5 in Vancouver BC and ends March 1 in Boston. See tour dates below.
Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday December 6, but fans that pre-order the album beginning Monday December 2 – Thursday December 5 @ www.stonetemplepilots.com will be able to purchase tickets and VIP packages that include Meet & Greet with the band, with a special code, prior to public on-sale.
