STONE TEMPLE PILOTS ALREADY WORKING ON NEW RECORD?

Stone Temple Pilots drummer Eric Kretz told the Ventura County Star that the band has already started working on a new album less than a year after the release of its self-titled sixth studio effort. Kretz said to the newspaper, "We took quite a long hiatus (from the studio) and then we started touring for about nine months straight. It was just a natural progression to say, 'Let's jump back in and go back in the studio and continue the writing thing.'" Kretz added that fans can expect the record "very soon" but did not offer any specific release plans.

Kretz also said that having enough songs for an album is not a problem, explaining, "There is never a shortage of material. It's just a matter of sifting through it and working with everyone's schedule."

STP released its sixth album earlier this year after a nine-year break from the studio. The band's last effort before that, Shangri-La-Dee-Da, came out in 2001.

The quartet reunited in 2008 for a successful world tour following a six-year hiatus.

Kretz said that the group hopes to get its new album out sometime next year and is also "looking at . . . trying new ideas of how to present music, especially for downloading."
