Shortly after the release of Stone Temple Pilots‘ self-titled 2010 release, there were reports that the band was already working on the follow-up. According to Scott Weiland, the recording process is about to go “full speed ahead.”

While promoting his new collection of Christmas songs ‘The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,’ Scott Weiland brought Billboard up to speed on Stone Temple Pilots new album:

“There is another album coming. They usually start before me, just getting some rough ideas together and then putting rough ideas down on ProTools with no lyrics and no melody — and then I start listening to it and see if it’s just a straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll record or if it’s more of a concept album like (2001’s) ‘Shangri-La Dee Da’ was. Once we decide that, it should go full speed ahead.”

This will be STP’s seventh studio album, the second since returning from the split that saw all members head to separate supergroups — Weiland formed Velvet Revolver with former members of Guns N’ Roses while the DeLeo brothers formed Army of Anyone with Richard Patrick of Filter. Stone Temple Pilots regroup for a three show stint in South America this month.
