After various Stone Temple Pilots members dropped hints about their next project all year, drummer Erik Kretz has finally confirmed it’s an “acoustic-ish” album.
Kretz tells Australia’s Heavy magazine, “It’s not all acoustic. There’s some electric guitars and some keyboards in there. It has strings in there and just some beautiful other instrumentation. It’s something that we kind of delved on 25 years ago when we starting doing the [MTV] Unplugged thing in New York.”
He adds that they’re planning a three-week U.S. tour in support of the project next year and that he’s looking forward to “being able to present the songs in just a different light and just try things a little different and maybe be able to play some material that we haven’t been able to touch in 25 years or 20 years.”
