CREED singer Scott Stapp has confirmed that he has joined ART OF ANARCHY as the replacement for late STONE TEMPLE PILOTS frontman Scott Weiland.
ART OF ANARCHY released a self-titled debut album last year that featured Weiland alongside DISTURBED bassist John Moyer and ex-GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal.
Stapp’s involvement with ART OF ANARCHY was originally slated to be announced in July, but the CREED frontman decided to “share this announcement sooner to clarify” recent speculation that he might have joined STONE TEMPLE PILOTS as that band’s new singer. The STP rumor was apparently semi-started by Stapp himself, who hinted in a radio interview that he had been recruited by STP as the third lead singer in the band’s history. But STP tweeted a brief statement on Monday (May 2) saying, “Despite recent comments, Scott Stapp is not, nor has he ever been considered as the singer for STP.“
