Band will kick things off in Alabama next month

Stone Temple Pilots have announced a tour of North America which starts next month with an appearance at Bayfest in Alabama.

The band have been working on their sixth studio album, their first since 2001’s ‘Shangri-La-Dee-Da’, which is set for release sometime in early 2010 although contractual disputes between the band and Atlantic Records are ongoing, reports Blabbermouth.
