Former Velvet Revolver and Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland is set to release a new solo album.

Blaster was recorded with his backing band the Wildabouts and will arrive on the 31st of March via Softdrive Records.

Says Weiland to Rolling Stone: “Blaster is definitely a band sound: a stripped-down, furry sound with a lot of space between the notes. But it’s tight and to-the-point while keeping that garage rock vibe to it.”

“If you take out the fact that we had to break up the recording process when touring, the album came very easily because of the vibe between the band members.

“The sound we were getting felt original and infectious and brought me back to the feelings I had when I made my first couple of records. Just excitement, feeling invigorated. Youthful.”

Weiland and his bandmates have lined up a 13 date US tour beginning on the 22nd of February.
