When the Stone Temple Pilots (and Linkin Park‘s Chester Bennington) cancelled their appearances at this years ‘Soundwave Festival‘, a statement was issued that cited recording delays as the reason for them pulling out. The band have since corrected that statement, offering the following today, February 03rd.
“We regret that, due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, our forthcoming tour dates in Australia, the Middle East and Hawaii have had to be cancelled. An initial statement citing “recording delays” wasn’t true — the conflict wasn’t related to recording new STP material. We are deeply disappointed to not be able to perform these shows, and look forward to making them up in the future.
–Robert, Dean, Eric and Chester“
