Despite their new EP with Bennington, Stone Temple Pilot’s relationship with former frontman Scott Weiland continues to turn sour with Weiland saying the band will have to “buy me out of the company” following his dismissal from the band.
The singer was fired from the long-running US rock band back in February. Tensions rose between band members when Weiland was warned against playing a solo tour featuring a performance of the band’s early album ‘Core’, but went ahead and played the gigs anyway.
In May, Stone Temple Pilots filed a lawsuit to stop Weiland from using the band’s name or performing their songs, claiming his dismissal was caused by addiction and persistent tardiness. The singer subsequently filed a countersuit against Stone Temple Pilots, claiming the band have no legal right to remove him from the line-up.
The fired frontman is currently touring the US as Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts. Stone Temple Pilots begin a tour of the US, Japan and New Zealand next month (September) with new frontman Chester Bennington, who remains a member of Linkin Park.
