Stone Temple Pilots will reunite this summer, according to Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash. The top-hatted axeman told Billboard that VR lead singer Scott Weiland will rejoin with his former bandmates, two-thirds of whom have most recently been teaming up with Filter's Richard Patrick in the band Army of Anyone, for a handful of concerts to take place this summer. Slash's comments echoed the quotes Weiland gave to the Miami Herald earlier this week, alerting fans they should be "on the lookout for an STP reunion in the coming months." Velvet Revolver is currently touring in support of their second album Libertad, with songs by Stone Temple Pilots and Guns n' Roses also featured in the set list. STP broke up in 2002 following the release of their fifth album Shangri-La Dee Da.
