Stone Temple Pilots Drummer Talks About STP’s Status
Will they or won’t they tour again?
Eric Kretz, the drummer behind controversial alternative group [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Stone Temple Pilots[/lastfm], recently spoke out about the status of the group with an interviewer from the Ventura County Star.
“Things are going really good,” Kretz said to reporter Marjorie Hernandez. In regards to a new STP album, Kretz commented that fans could expect a new album soon.
“We took quite a long hiatus [from the studio] and then we started touring for about nine months straight. It was just a natural progression to say, ‘Let’s jump back in and go back in the studio and continue the writing thing.’”
Added Kretz, “The writing process always comes pretty easy, especially having the DeLeo brothers [Robert and Dean] in the band. There is never a shortage of material. It’s just a matter of sifting through it and working with everyone’s schedule. The only difficult part was Scott [Weiland, vocals] was finishing up a tour for his solo album. Once he completed his commitments, the record just moved along fine. I am really proud of what we came out with in the end.”
As far as the future for STP goes, Kretz said that the group is “looking at putting out another record next year or touring some more and trying new ideas of how to present music, especially for downloading.”
