Stone Temple Pilots needs a new lead singer. The band released a one-sentence statement Tuesday morning, saying that they have “officially terminated” founding member Scott Weiland as their frontman. A replacement for Weiland has yet to be announced.

The announcement comes just two weeks after Weiland scheduled a number of solo tour dates where he would be performing STP’s first two albums, 1992’s Core and 1994’s Purple , with his new solo band, The Wildabouts .

While STP's future is uncertain, Weiland has said that he plans to release a solo album with The Wildabouts sometime in the near future.

If you're keeping score, it was five years ago that Weiland left Velvet Revolver under less than amiable circumstances.
