NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 9, 2010) -  Atlantic recording group Stone Temple Pilots want to thank all of their fans for the continued support. In exciting news, beginning today, June 9th, anyone that purchases a ticket online in the first two weeks of on sale for Stone Temple Pilots' upcoming tour, will receive a code for an exclusive bonus audio download of their recent "Live in Chicago" concert. Pre-sale tickets will be available at the band's official website, www.stonetemplepilots.com. Tickets go on sale to the general public, beginning Saturday, June 12th.

Stone Temple Pilots -- Scott Weiland, Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo, and Eric Kretz, who are currently the #1 rock 'n' roll band in the country, will kick off the tour on Tuesday, August 10th at Denver, Colorado's world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre and then travel North America through early September (see below itinerary). Joining Stone Temple Pilots will be special guests Cage the Elephant.

Stone Temple Pilots -- who will spend the early part of their summer on the other side of the Atlantic, hitting Europe for a series of long awaited headline shows and festival performances -- will bookend their upcoming tour with headline appearances at a pair of North American festies: Canada's annual Rock On The Range on Saturday, August 7th at Winnipeg's Canad Inns Stadium; and the Arizona Fall Frenzy '10, slated for Friday, September 17th at Phoenix' Tempe Beach Park. In addition, the band will headline the annual Rock 'N Rev Festival in Sturgis, South Dakota on Wednesday, August 11th and 89.7 The River's "River Riot 2010" at Council Bluffs, Iowa's Westfair Amphitheater on Saturday, August 14th. For up-to-the-minute information, please see www.stonetemplepilots.com.

"STONE TEMPLE PILOTS" -- the Grammy Award-winning band's first all-new collection in close to a decade -- sees one of rock's greatest bands continuing to explore their enduring approach to music -- melding big riffs, classic pop hooks, and the restless experimentalism of glam, punk, and psychedelia. Among many highlights on "STONE TEMPLE PLIOTS" is the raucous first single, "Between The Lines." The track has proven a rock radio sensation, recently spending four weeks as the #1 track at Mainstream Rock radio outlets nationwide, as well as three weeks atop the Modern Rock airplay charts. In addition, the "Between The Lines" companion video can be seen regularly on MTV2 and Fuse's No. 1 Countdown. What's more, a new single, "Take A Load Off," is set to impact at multi-format rock radio outlets everywhere later this month. A companion video is currently in production.

A dominant force in rock music since the early '90s, Stone Temple Pilots proved one of the most accomplished and iconic bands of their generation, racking up 15 Billboard Top 10 singles -- 6 of which hit #1 -- and total sales in excess of 35 million albums worldwide. The California-based band went on hiatus in 2002, following the release of the critically acclaimed "SHANGRI-LA DEE DA," ultimately reuniting for a massive 2008 concert tour encompassing more than 65 dates across North America.

Among their many accolades, Stone Temple Pilots received a "Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal" Grammy Award for their #1 Mainstream Rock smash, "Plush." Other honors bestowed upon the band over the years include additional Grammy award nominations, two American Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award, two Billboard Video Awards, and an MTV Video Music Award.
