Scott Weiland Won’t Tour With Art of Anarchy
Scott Weiland says a rejuvenated solo career will keep him away from any live dates with the newly announced supergroup Art of Anarchy. The former Stone Temple Pilots frontman, whose last album of original material was 2008's 'Happy in Galoshes,' had already confirmed a long-awaited new recording of his own.
"I just saw some press about a side project called Art of Anarchy that I worked on last year," Weiland said in an overnight Facebook post. "I wrote and put my vocals down for these guys and had fun doing a couple of videos too. We had a lot of fun. When they find their frontman to hit the road and play some dates, check them out."
‘Blaster,’ featuring Weiland and his regular band the Wildabouts, is due March 31, with a U.S. tour scheduled to launch soon. Art of Anarchy, which also includes members of Guns N' Roses and Disturbed, also plan to release their self-titled debut album later this spring.
Weiland memorably worked with former members of Guns N' Roses in Velvet Revolver, as well. Art of Anarchy are rounded out by Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal and John Moyer, as well as twin brothers Jon and Vince Votta. Bumblefoot also served as engineer and producer on the 'Art of Anarchy' album.
