(January 29, 2015 – Toronto, ON) — Scott Weiland, “one of rock’s most dynamic front men” (Spin Mag), and his band the Wildabouts have just announced that they will perform in Toronto at The Mod Club on Thursday May 7, as part of Canadian Music Week. Tickets for the show will go on sale tomorrow at 11 AM ET. Tickets can be purchased at http://tktwb.tw/1KbJ7qn

 

Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts will release their highly anticipated debut album Blaster on March 31, 2015 through Softdrive Records/Universal Music in Canada. Produced by Rick Parker [Black Rebel Motorcycle Club] and recorded throughout 2014 at Lavish Studios in Burbank and at The Sandbox in Beachwood Canyon, Blaster features twelve no-nonsense, straight-ahead rock tracks, including the “gritty, hammering bulldozer of a song” (Billboard) “White Lighting”, “indie garage-wrecking” track “Modzilla” and the slinky, sexy, tune “Way She Moves”. Fans can pre-order the album now through the band’s PledgeMusic page. With each pledge, fans will also receive a free download of “Modzilla”. Earlier this month, the band shared a video for the track via Huffington Post.

Having just performed at The Sundance Film Festival to a packed house at the ASCAP Music Café, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts will be touring across the US over the next few months in support of their latest project. The band is confirmed to play SXSW and Bottlerock Music Festival this year, as well as Welcome to Rockville, Rock on The Range, Rocklahoma and Caroline Rebellion in May. Additional tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks. For all confirmed tour dates, see below.

Weiland and the Wildabouts’ guitarist Jeremy Brown, bassist Tommy Black, and drummer Danny Thompson, have a comradery fostered by years of jamming and touring together. After touring for several months in 2013, they hunkered down in Weiland’s Southern California studio and rehearsal space to write and record what would eventually become Blaster.

“The album has its own distinctive sound,” says Weiland, “but it also can entice those Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver fans who have stuck by me. Over the years, I’ve gone back and forth between art records and being in a band. This is a hybrid. What we’ve come up with is really heavy, slinky, and sexy. There’s a lot of fuzz. The best way to describe it is ‘Furry’.” I knew I wanted to make a rock record,” proclaims Weiland. “It all just came together.

Scott Weiland has cumulatively sold over 44 million records worldwide with Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver. He’s garnered two Grammy Awards in the category of “Best Hard Rock Performance”—in 2005 for “Slither” and in 1994 for “Plush”. Stone Temple Pilots’ Purple debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 a feat also accomplished by Velvet Revolver’s Contraband. Weiland’s voice has driven some of the most recognizable hits in rock ‘n’ roll history including “Sex Type Thing”, “Wicked Garden”, “Creep”, “Interstate Love Song”, “Vasoline”, “The Big Empty”, “Sour Girl”, “Down”, and more. He released his memoir Not Dead & Not for Sale in 2011 to critical applause. Still, his most powerful music is yet to come with the release of Blaster.
