With Creed frontman Scott Stapp readying a new solo album for release and the other three members of the group recently putting out their fourth studio effort under the Alter Bridge name, Creed itself remains on hold for now. But Stapp told us that the "door's always open" for the band to return: "Right now I think we're all just focused on what we're doing now. You know, I love those guys and always will and want the best for them in everything they do. And when it's organic and when it can be as fulfilling and as joyful and as real and not so much about what managers and record companies want, definitely, you know, the door's open for that. But I think right now, just as they're doing what they're doing, you know, I'm loving what I'm doing."
Creed reunited in 2009 after a five-year hiatus, recording one album called Full Circle and doing several tours. The band last toured in 2012.
Stapp will release his second solo album, titled Proof Of Life, on November 5th. It follows up his first solo effort, 2005's The Great Divide.
The singer explained the long gap between solo projects, telling Billboard, "I thought I was working on the second solo album staring in 2006, but really my life began to be filled with so much chaos that nothing really survived . . . I still had a lot of things to learn, personally, before it was the right time. I think the album has perfect synergy for where I am in my life today."
Stapp plans a full tour behind the new album next March, but will do promotional TV and radio appearances throughout the fall.
