Stone Temple Pilots have announced their first tour with Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington as frontman.

Bennington replaced Scott Weiland in the band earlier this year (13) and made his debut as frontman in May (13) at Kroq's Weenie Roast festival - and now it looks as if his position will be permanent.

Just days after Stp and Bennington confirmed a headlining spot at the first annual Rockwave Festival in Fort Myers, Florida on 21 September (13), the group has released details of a new tour, which kicks off in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on 4 September (13).

Brothers Dean and Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz have also teamed up with their new singer in the studio and the band plans to release a new Ep later this year (13). A new single, titled Out of Time, has blasted its way on to the U.S. rock charts.
