Stone Temple Pilots have released "Roll Me Under," their latest track with new singer Jeff Gutt. The crunchy, hard-hitting song will appear on the band's upcoming LP, Stone Temple Pilots, out March 16th.
"Roll Me Under" is the second track to feature Gutt that the band has unveiled so far, following "Meadow," which came out in November. Singing over ringing guitars from Dean DeLeo and clobbering drums from Eric Kretz, Gutt strikes a defiant pose. "Roll me under/I'll pull the trigger for you," he declares. "Do with me what you will."
"'Roll Me Under' was one of the first songs I wrote for the album, and one of the first Jeff sang on too," said STP bassist Robert DeLeo. "Those riffs have been kicking around in my head for years, and it felt like the right time to record and perform it."
"Roll Me Under" and "Meadow" will both be part of the new Stone Temple Pilots LP, the band's first full-length since 2010 – and their first since the death of former lead singer Scott Weiland in 2015. "The new album feels like a completed journey for the band," Robert DeLeo explained. "The record breathes resilience. A lot of life has been funneled into this body of music."
Following the album's release, Gutt will join Stone Temple Pilots on a North American tour. According to Dean DeLeo, the set lists during shows will be wide-ranging. "We would like to cover a fair amount of material, possibly diggin' into songs we've never played live," he told Rolling Stone.
"We can all can expect Stone Temple Pilots' classics done with respect to the members still here and the ones that aren't," Gutt added. "It's important to me that these legacies stay intact and are celebrated, and to continue the musical journey of Stone Temple Pilots with the new music."
