After appearing on a track on Limp Bizkit's last album, 1999's "Significant Other," Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland has teamed with the group once again for its upcoming LP, tentatively due out in August.
Weiland has posted a message on the official STP Web site that discusses his involvement with the Limp Bizkit album, and he mentions being particularly pleased with an as-yet-untitled new song that he and Fred Durst perform together.
A spokesperson for Weiland told MTV News that the singer has visited Limp Bizkit in the studio several times and is loosely serving in the capacity of a creative executive producer for the new Bizkit album, tentatively titled "Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water."
Though not explicitly credited, Weiland offered similar guidance on Bizkit's "Significant Other" LP and provided vocals on one of the record's tracks, "Nobody Like You."
The recent collaboration would suggest that Weiland
and Limp Bizkit have smoothed over some of the ruffled feathers from their bands' respective appearances at last month's KROCK Dysfunctional Family Picnic in New York City.
At the show, which was delayed when Limp Bizkit showed up an hour late for its set, Weiland took a swipe at Durst during STP's performance, telling the audience "It ain't f***in' cool to keep people waiting for an hour for a f***ing show, no matter what."
Limp Bizkit will kick off its Napster-sponsored "Back To Basics" tour on Tuesday night in Detroit (see "Limp Unveils More Cities As Free Tour Launch Looms") before rolling into Boston and New York for multi-night stands.
Stone Temple Pilots are gearing up for their own summer outing, which includes a stint with the Red Hot Chili Peppers as well as an opening slot with the Beastie Boys and Rage Against The Machine on their "Rhyme And Reason 2000" tour (see "No
Doubt, Busta Rhymes To Open 'Rhyme And Reason'").
