It's Official: STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Recruit One-Time 'The X Factor' Singer JEFF GUTT As New Frontman

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS have selected one-time "The X Factor" contestant Jeff Gutt as their new vocalist. Gutt, who was a runner-up in season three of the reality television music competition show created by Simon Cowell, was announced as the band's latest singer during a SiriusXM special earlier tonight (Tuesday, November 14) hosted by Eddie Trunk.

Gutt originally auditioned for STONE TEMPLE PILOTS in September 2016 and was officially named the band's new singer in May 2017. He has spent the last year secretly writing and recording new material in Redondo Beach, California with bandmembers Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz.

Robert DeLeo said that he first found out about Gutt while he was on the road with the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES. "We were playing Pine Knob — I don't know what it's called now; I know it as Pine Knob — up in Detroit, which is where [Jeff is] from," the bassist said. "And after the show, there was a musician who said, 'Hey, man, you should check this guy out.' And that's where I kind of heard of him first — it was through that guy. And it just happened that it came together like that."

Regarding how he came to try out for STP, Jeff said: "I had heard about [the audition process], but I was on tour in the Middle East with my band at the time, so I was, like, doing my own thing, and that was everything that I had going on. And then when I got back, I was driving and I heard… I can't remember what song it was, but a STONE TEMPLE PILOTS song came on the radio. So I called my buddy in New York who knows everybody in the music industry, and I was, like, 'Hey, did they ever find a singer?' And he was, like, 'You know what? I'll send 'em your stuff right now.' And three days later, I got a call."

He sounds like Scott Weiland. I guess I'm ok with that.



And I guess this is the new album artwork...

Never heard of the gut but he doesn't sound too bad. That said, I think that song is pretty lame. STP can do much better than that.

Eh, I like it well enough. It sounds like STP and that's fine with me. I'm looking forward to this.

Really does sound like Weiland. Wonder how fans will respond.

I'm going with the theory that for this new album, he'll be doing Weiland impression, just to appease the long-time fans and for the DeLeo brothers to get something new out there. In all likelihood, the band had this music written and recorded and were just looking for someone to provide the vocals. If the fans take to the new guy and he manages to stick around for a 2nd album, he'll start to find his own voice.

I'd be ok with that.

His voice fits with the music, but it just isn't the same... just like Journey with Arnell. Some bands become like a cover band even though the actual members are in it. Remember when INXS hired that reality show singer like this guy? It obviously didn't work. The reality show contestant thing is a unfavorable stigma IMO.

He's definitely doing an impression, which is a shame.



He's got a good voice otherwise, but never sounded like Weiland. Normally he sounds more like the dude from Adema.

Journey with Arnell is pretty damn good. Revelation and Eclipse are great. "Resonate" is one of the best songs they've ever recorded.

Ewwww. I'll take the Weiland impression, thank you.

He sounds like a mix of Weiland and Josh Todd of Buckcherry.

The songwriting isn't there IMO. Nothing stands out like the early Steve Perry years.

I'm willing to give the new STP singer a chance, although it's worth noting that while the DeLeo brothers wrote the bulk of STP's music, Scott Weiland wrote all the lyrics. I wonder if this new guy will have the skills.
