Scott Weiland

Stone Temple Pilots could reunite as part of VH1's Decades Rock Live! concert series. The Rock band, which last played together in 2003, is slated to be on the bill alongside Scott Weiland's current group Velvet Revolver on August 18 in Atlantic City. The gig will be filmed for a later airing. The Decades Rock Live! series has featured various, surprising combinations of artists on stage in Atlantic City over the past year. The next edition will feature Heart and the surviving members of Alice In Chains.

With the release today of their new album First Impressions Of Earth, The Strokes have also revealed some of their touring plans for the new year. Over the next week, the band will play a handful of "surprise" gigs throughout the U.S., with a proper tour running from late February to mid-April. A tour of the U.K., Scotland and Ireland is slated for January and February, with most dates already sold out. The Strokes plan to visit Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan before the end of the summer.

Rapper Obie Trice was shot in his hometown of Detroit on New Year's Eve while driving on the freeway. Trice was shot at from another vehicle early in the morning, and released from a hospital later in the day. There are no suspects at this time. Trice is a protege of Eminem and signed to his Shady Records label.

Staind has announced a slate of live dates over the next two months, with 15 shows revealed thus far, beginning in Philadelphia on January 29. Staind frontman Aaron Lewis has a handful of solo, acoustic gigs slated in January as well.

Also hitting the road in January and February is Sevendust, with a headlining tour beginning on January 18 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. So far, 18 dates have been announced, with Socialburn opening the majority of the trek.


The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips will release the long-awaited At War With The Mystics sometime in April, with a digital release of the album track "The W.A.N.D." on January 10. The band will reissue their classic 1999 album The Soft Bulletin as a CD/DVD set on January 31, and have also put several hard-to-find singles and rare tracks online for digital download.

Ben Harper will release a double-album on March 21, entitled Both Sides Of The Gun. Harper tells Rolling Stone that much like last year's Foo Fighters album, he wanted to split the music between more rocking sounds and mellower tracks. Harper also recently tied the knot with actress Laura Dern just days before Christmas.

Canadian rockers Danko Jones will hit the road this month as the opening act for Nickelback's tour of their home and native land, beginning on January 17. The band will also drop their next album, Sleep Is The Enemy, in May, with the lead single set as "First Date."

Guitarist Bryan Harvey, formerly of the duo House Of Freaks, was found murdered on New Year's Eve, alongside his wife and two daughters. According to reports, the Harveys were discovered when firefighters responded to a 911 call reporting a fire at their Virginia home.
