Stone Temple Pilots Reveal New Vocalist Jeff Gutt From X Factor

Stone Temple Pilots have dropped their first single since announcing their new frontman Jeff Gutt. Stone Temple Pilots plan to release a new album in spring 2018 on Atlantic/Rhino and they will also tour next year.

Rolling Stone reports the band introduced Jeff Gutt last night at the Troubadour. The band have shared their newest single "Meadow". Although Gutt's task is a daunting one, we think he's up for the challenge. Gutt, who had not submitted himself, was brought to Los Angeles during September of 2016 and sang during the final day the auditions.

So to say he's got some big shoes to fill is an understatement, but Gutt isn't trying to, stating no one could possibly fill a legend's shoes. "I'm just honored that the guys chose me to help them continue to build this band's legacy".

Some AT&T customers are experiencing outages
Wireless provider AT&T has reported network outages in cities across the country on Wednesday, according to news reports. AT&T has replied to several customers on the social media site, advising them to turn their phones off and then back on.

Gutt found a television audience on the U.S. version of talent show "The X Factor", performing a deep metal-voiced rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". "There are many singers that come in that can sing, too. There's a lot of things to look at to really, really choose someone to move forward with". A former contestant on The X Factor, Gutt is also a veteran of the Detroit music scene and has been spending the past year writing and recording with the band (Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo, and Eric Kretz). After his TV run he headlined a show at Detroit's Masonic Temple and at Arts, Beats & Eats.

The concert marked the band's first public performance in 18 months, and its first since Bennington, its last full-time frontman, committed suicide earlier this year. While there is undoubtedly going to be some apprehension with a newcomer like Gutt fronting such a famous band, his vocals are within the same range as Weiland's so fans should be able to put their concerns at ease.
