Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo revealed that the band has been working on new music with current singer Chester Bennington of Linkin Park.

"Spending the week writing new #STP material here at HOMeFRY...," tweeted DeLeo, along with an image of the band in their practice room. "…And having a blast..." read the follow-up tweet with more smiles from the group members.

Bennington was brought into the band after original frontman Scott Weiland was fired by Stone Temple Pilots in February of 2013, leading to a series of public statements and lawsuits by both parties.

The revitalized group released an EP, "High Rise", last fall; the project debuted at No. 24 on the US Billboard 200 chart following first week sales of 12,000 copies. 


Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian tells Metal Hammer the band is working with "Game of Thrones" executive producer D. B. Weiss to record some of the record's new drum parts in the hit HBO show's infamous throne room. 

Scott says they came up with the idea during their recent tour of the "Game of Thrones" set in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and Weiss was immediately on board. 


Anthrax's new album is expected to be released sometime next year.
