Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has joined Stone Temple Pilots as their new frontman, it has been revealed.

Fans attending the KROQ Weenie Roast in Los Angeles this weekend were the first to discover that Bennington was now the lead singer of the band, who were previously fronted by Scott Weiland. The band's set featured old songs 'Sex Type Thing' and 'Vasoline' during their 40-minute set and also debuted a brand new song, titled 'Out Of Time'.

Confirming that Bennington is now the frontman of their band, Stone Temple Pilots members Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz revealed the news via their website. "Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time," writes Dean DeLeo. "We know Linkin Park will always be his priority, but we thought it would be cool to try something together. We managed to find the time to record a song and we’re all really happy with the result."

Bennington himself also spoke out, revealing that he is a long term fan of the band. "I’ve loved STP since I was 13 years old and they’ve had a huge influence on me. When the opportunity came up to do something creative with them, I jumped at the chance. The guys in Linkin Park have been incredibly supportive of me undertaking this project while I’ve continued to work on new music with LP."

Stone Temple Pilots next gig is scheduled for May 30 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.
