Wild Nights On The Road With Scott Weiland

Scott Weiland and The Wildabouts have announced a February/March outing ahead of the release of the act’s debut album. The former Stone Temple Pilots frontman calls the LP “heavy, slinky and sexy.”  

The 12-track Blaster is due out March 31. Rick Parker, who previously worked with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, produced the LP.   

“The album has its own distinctive sound,” Weiland said, “but it can also entice those Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver fans who have stuck by me. “Over the years, I’ve gone back and forth between art records and being in a band. This is hybrid. What we’ve come up with is really heavy, slinky and sexy. There’s a lot of fuzz. The best way to describe it is ‘Furry.’ I knew I wanted to make a rock record. It all just came together.”

Along with Weiland, the group includes guitarist Jeremy Brown, bassist Tommy Black and drummer Danny Thompson.
