Recording conflicts were NOT the Reason Stone Temple Pilots cancelled for Soundwave




Originally when Stone Temple Pilots - or Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington as some people would prefer they be known - cancelled their planned Soundwave appearances, the reason cited in the announcement was a conflict with a planned recording schedule.

Now however STP say that was not the case and have released a new statement; "We regret that, due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, our forthcoming tour dates in Australia, the Middle East and Hawaii have had to be cancelled.An initial statement citing 'recording delays' wasn't true — the conflict wasn't related to recording new STP material. We are deeply disappointed to not be able to perform these shows, and look forward to making them up in the future."

So what is going on? Seems like Soundwave's AJ Maddah knows but unusually enough even his normally loose lips seem to be sealed:



There are many who guess it may be related to the ongoing legal battle between STP and former frontman Scott Weiland. Both parties are in the process of suing one another and the whole thing is rather complex. Originally the remaining members of STP sued Weiland for performing STP songs as a solo artist after being fired from the band. He then countersued
them, claiming that as a founder of the band and co author he had every right to do so. The case is still ongoing but in an August interview with Rolling Stone Weiland was pretty clear about what he wanted; "They'll have to buy me out of the company."
