Remember when we told you there was this new band coming out soon featuring Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver fame?
The band is called Art of Anarchy, and they even released a band photo, showing Scott front and center.
Well, since the news of Art of Anarchy’s formation broke, Weiland has been distancing himself from the project that he recorded a forthcoming album with.
Disturbed’s John Moyer, Guns N’ Roses’ Bumblefoot, and two brothers named Votta round out the group.
First, Weiland told media outlets he would not be touring with the band, but copped to being a member.
But now, he’s saying he’s not in Art of Anarchy at all. In fact, Weiland claims he was just asked to write some lyrics and sing on the band’s record. That doesn’t mean he’s in the fucking outfit, people.
“I was never in [Art of Anarchy],” Scott tells Billboard.
“It was something I did when I wasn’t doing anything. I was asked to write some lyrics and sing some melodies on this project, but it’s not a band I’m in.”
The Wildabouts is his band, he says.
Bumblefoot has told Rolling Stone that all is well, and that the band’s members are all on the same page.
“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. Taking everything as it comes, one step at a time, letting it evolve organically. Where it goes from here (and with who!) is yet to be seen.”
