WATCH: Stone Temple Pilots' Love Story Video

Stone Temple Pilots' Scott Weiland
William Goodman

Love's agony and ecstasy are both captured in Stone Temple Pilots' new video for "Between the Lines," the lead single off their self-titled comeback album (out May 25). Watch below.

As the Los Angeles quartet perform the catchy track in a plush, hippie-den of a home, footage chronicles the ups and downs of a rocky relationship from the perspective of a young man: He trades smiles and smooches with his girl, runs hand-in-hand, and makes love to her, but, later, she slaps him and kicks him out of a car. Ouch.

Meanwhile, singer Scott Weiland croons on a big, gritty chorus: "I like it when we talk about love? / I like it when we talk about love? / You always were my favorite drug /? Even when we used to take drugs."

STP premiered a handful of new songs at their blowout SXSW show, including "Bagman," "Hickory Dichotomy," and "Huckleberry Crumble,"which bassist Robert DeLeo told was a nod to Paul Revere and the Raiders. Read SPIN's complete concert review here.
