SCOTT WEILAND DISTANCES HIMSELF FROM NEW ‘SUPERGROUP’
Just one day after the unveiling of “supergroup” Art Of Anarchy, one member is distancing himself from the project. Singer Scott Weiland said in a new Facebook post that he won’t be touring with the group, writing, “I just saw some press about a side project called art of anarchy that I worked on last year — I wrote and put my vocals down for these guys and had fun doing a couple of videos too, we had a lot of fun. When they find their front man to hit the road and play some dates, check them out.”
In addition to the former Stone Temple Pilots singer, Art Of Anarchy also features Disturbed bassist John Moyer and Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal.
Thal confirmed that Art Of Anarchy will likely employ a new singer vocalist when and if the band hits the road later in the year.
He told Rolling Stone, “The five of us made an album together. Scott is currently the singer of the band. It’s in writing; no confusion. But yes, Scott’s solo album and tour are his priority and we’re all on the same page about getting another vocalist if Art Of Anarchy hits the road. But we don’t need to cross that bridge just yet.”
Thal added, “Art Of Anarchy is not competition or a threat or interference to what any of us are doing — it’s a complement, an addition, one I’m proud of creatively.”
The rest of the lineup is filled out by Jon Votta on guitar and Vince Votta on drums. The group’s debut disc will arrive this spring.
