Stone Temple Pilots have revealed their new lead singer two years after frontman Scott Weiland died of an accidental overdose. His name is Jeff Gutt, a Detroit native and former The X-Factor contestant. STP bassist Robert DeLeo heard him perform a Detroit show with the supergroup Hollywood Vampires, and he joined the band after auditioning. Gutt sang his first show as an official Stone Temple Pilot at an invite-only show Tuesday night at Los Angeles’ Troubadour.
Gutt is also featured on STP’s upcoming album—which is due next spring—and is featured on the just-released “Meadow.” Listen below.
