Former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver vocalist Scott Weiland, and his band The Wildabouts, will release their debut album Blaster on March 31st, through Softdrive Records/Universal Music in Canada. Check out video teasers for the tracks “Way She Moves” And “Hotel Rio” below:
Video teasers for “White Lightning” and “Circles” follow:
Produced by Rick Parker (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) and recorded throughout 2014 at Lavish Studios in Burbank and at The Sandbox in Beachwood Canyon, Blaster features 12 no-nonsense, straight-ahead rock tracks, including: “White Lighting”, “Modzilla” and “Way She Moves”. Fans can pre-order the album now through the band’s Pledge Music Page. With each pledge, fans will also receive a free download of “Modzilla”.
Weiland and the Wildabouts’ guitarist Jeremy Brown, bassist Tommy Black, and drummer Danny Thompson, have a comradery fostered by years of jamming and touring together. After touring for several months in 2013, they hunkered down in Weiland’s Southern California studio and rehearsal space to write and record what would eventually become Blaster.
“The album has its own distinctive sound,” says Weiland, “but it also can entice those Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver fans who have stuck by me. Over the years, I’ve gone back and forth between art records and being in a band. This is a hybrid. What we’ve come up with is really heavy, slinky, and sexy. There’s a lot of fuzz. The best way to describe it is ‘Furry’.” I knew I wanted to make a rock record,” proclaims Weiland. “It all just came together.”
