Scott Weiland Working on New Material + Planning Tour
Scott Weiland is back in the creative spirit, working on new music, though it is not known as of yet where it will turn up. The singer is also reportedly mapping out some tour dates for 2013, with an announcement expected soon.
Longtime Weiland cohort Doug Grean revealed in a Facebook posting that he was “working on new songs with Scott Weiland today,” which might suggest a new Weiland solo album is in the works. Grean previously worked with Weiland on his ‘Happy in Galoshes’ disc. In addition, Weiland’s Facebook page has a banner teasing that more dates for 2013 would be coming soon.
Recently, Slash revealed that Weiland’s overtures toward reuniting with Velvet Revolver were falling on deaf ears and that he never saw a situation where he would work with Weiland again. In addition, the guitarist stated that Weiland’s sudden interest in reuniting with VR may have been spurred by him being fired from Stone Temple Pilots.
As a solo artist, Weiland has been responsible for 1998’s ’12 Bar Blues’ and 2008’s ‘Happy in Galoshes,’ as well as the holiday-themed album, ‘The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,’ which arrived in 2011.
