Cable channel Showtime is developing a documentary about Stone Temple PilotsKent Sevener, Showtime executive VP of content acquisition & business & legal affairs, revealed the existence of the project in an interview with Broadcasting & Cable, promising "a compelling story" and explaining that "not a lot has been done about the band." Sevener did not indicate when the documentary would air or if footage has already been compiled for it.

STP bassist Robert DeLeo had said a while back that he's never taken the band's success for granted: "I really enjoy what I do. I think it's an honor, and I don't take it lightly. I feel blessed to be out here, making music and playing for people. It's a dream that I had when I was little, and to be able to follow through with that dream and continue to do that, is a complete honor."

  • STP will releases its self-titled seventh album on March 16th. The set marks the recording debut of singer and one-time The X Factor contestant Jeff Gutt as the third vocalist in the group's history.
  • Gutt made his live debut with the band last November at the Troubadour nightclub in Los Angeles.
  • Before that, STP had been without a vocalist since November 2015, when the late Chester Bennington -- who joined the group in early 2013 -- departed to spend more time with his main band Linkin Park.
  • Scott Weiland, who reunited with the group in 2010 after an eight-year hiatus but was dismissed in 2013, died in December 2015 of a drug overdose while on a solo tour.
  • STP will begin its first tour with Gutt on the mic this Friday (March 2nd) in Santa Clarita, California.
