Stone Temple PilotsBased out of San Diego, STP signed with Atlantic Records in 1991, releasing their first album, Core, the following year. Coming at the height of grunge, Core demonstrated a departure from the rock albums of the era. Weiland’s vocals, dripping with attitude, recalled the rock-star swagger of older groups like Guns N’ Roses and the Doors, and Dean DeLeo’s metal-tinged guitar riffs drew comparisons to the unapologetically accessible arena rock of the '70s. Core sold an impressive 8 million copies in the U.S. Those who predicted that STP would be one-trick ponies had to eat their words when Purple, the band’s 1994 follow-up, sold 6 million copies in the U.S. Featuring hits like “Vasoline” and “Interstate Love Song,” which each topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts, Purple focused on hard rock but unlike Core also made room for pop songs like “Still Remains” and the Led Zeppelin-style acoustic number “Pretty Penny.” By this point, Stone Temple Pilots were well on their way to becoming one of the decade’s most divisive bands: Journalists and hipsters did not respect them, but mainstream audiences adored them.
Stone Temple Pilots released their third album, Tiny Music... Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop, on March 5, 1996. Fans again showed their support of the band when the album debuted at number four on the U.S. charts.
Stone Temple Pilots released No.4 in 1999. Singles released from the album included "Down" and "No Way Out", but they scored one of their biggest hits since the success of Core and Purple with the single "Sour Girl". "Sour Girl" was inspired by Weiland's failing relationship with his then wife, and peaked at number 78 on the Billboard Hot 100, thus becoming the band's most successful single to date. The popular music video for "Sour Girl" featured actress Sarah Michelle Gellar.
During the summer of 2001, the band released their fifth album, Shangri-La Dee Da, which produced two rock radio hits: "Days of the Week" and "Hollywood Bitch". At the end of their fall 2002 tour STP called it quits. On November 11, 2003, Atlantic Records released a greatest hits album, Thank You, with a bonus DVD. The compilation included a previously unreleased single called "All in the Suit That You Wear". The bonus DVD included an acoustic performance of "Plush" filmed in 1992 on MTV's Headbanger's Ball.
In 2008 the band reunited and in 2009 STP embarked on a short summer tour that kicked off on July 1, 2009 in Los Angeles and ended on July 19, 2009 in Columbia, Maryland and later led to a full-fledged tour.
Stone Temple Pilots is the sixth studio album. The album was released worldwide from May 21 through May 27, 2010, and is the band's first album since Shangri-La Dee Da (2001). The album is the result of the band's reunion.
Did You Know? Stone Temple Pilots got their start thanks to a chance meeting between singer Scott Weiland and bassist Robert DeLeo in Southern California at a 1986 Black Flag concert. Discovering they were seeing the same girl, they became unlikely friends. Recruiting drummer Eric Kretz and guitarist Dean DeLeo (Robert’s brother), the group dubbed themselves Mighty Joe Young. But after learning that a blues artist already had the name, they changed their moniker to Stone Temple Pilots.
