May 28 [16:00 EDT] -- Even before Stone Temple Pilots wrapped up a tour last week, rumors began circulating that the band was about to break up.
Band manager Steve Stewart denied those rumors, but he does confirm that the band will be pursuing other projects in the near future. Stewart says that singer Scott Weiland is working on a solo album, while the rest of the band is resuming work on tracks with a singer named Dave Coutts. STP began rehearsing with Coutts while Weiland was dealing with his heroin addiction last year.
There's no official word yet on when we might hear either the Weiland or the STP/Coutts projects, but we'll keep you posted.
