Stone Temple Pilots guitarist, bassist talk new album


Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo and bassist Robert DeLeo sat down recently with William Goodman of SPIN.com. Read a few choice excerpts from that chat below.


SPIN.com: Where are you guys in the recording process now?

Dean DeLeo: We're done recording and will start mixing Monday.

Robert DeLeo: Yep, we just finished the last two songs at my home studio, and we're going through the editing process and getting everything sounding tasty. A gentleman by the name of Chris Lord-Alge, who actually mixed a song of ours back in early 2000 called "All in the Suit That You Wear", will mix the new album.

SPIN.com: What should fans expect from this record?

Robert: Fans are going get a great STP record. We know what STP sounds like we have a sonic blueprint. It's always worked for me to put myself in the ears of the listener. I ask myself, "What kind of STP record would I want to hear?" The answer is a really cohesive record with songs that are going to be lasting. Fans don't necessarily want to hear songs from me being the best person I can be. Those songs are for a solo record. STP fans don't want that side of me. This band is attractive because we bring it to the edge of a cliff and write songs that have attitude.

SPIN.com: Can you tell me about a few songs from the album?

Robert: There's a song called "Between the Lines", which musically is like PAUL REVERE AND THE RAIDERS, with that '60s sound that I've always been a fan of. It's a '60s rockin' basher! There's another song called "Huckleberry Crumble". It's funny: these were actually working titles from when Dean, Eric [Kretz, drums], and I were writing the music at Eric's studio. Scott [Weiland, vocals] has gravitated toward them and we're officially using those titles, "Huckleberry Crumble" included. [Faux British accent]: "And it's another good rocker, baby!"
