New Stone Temple Pilots singer

Chester Bennington of Linkin Park revealed as group's new frontman.

A surprise appearance at the KROQ Los Angeles radio's annual Weenie Roast saw Stone Temple Pilots revealing Scott Weiland's replacement - in the form of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington.

The band performed classics such as "Sex Type Thing" and "Vasoline" along with premiering their new song, "Out of Time."

"I’ve loved STP since I was 13 years old and they’ve had a huge influence on me,” explained Bennington. "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.”

"Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time,” said Dean. "We know Linkin Parkwill 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.”
