Stone Temple Pilots suspend tour after outburstNEW YORK (Billboard) - Stone Temple Pilots have postponed 12 dates on their tour in the wake of singer Scott Weiland's rambling speech onstage during the trek's Houston stop.

The group has taken a "short break" beginning with the show scheduled for Tuesday in El Paso, according to its announcement, and will return to the road on October 8 in Tampa.

The band did not give a specific reason for the break, but Weiland's outburst on Sunday may have contributed.

According to the Houston Press, STP took the stage about one hour after opener Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's set, after which Weiland offered slurred tangents about his in-ear monitors, past drug use and thoughts on grunge music. "The 8th of December will be the time when I stopped doing dope," Weiland said, and then hushed the crowd as it began to cheer. "No, no, no, no," he continued. "I started drinking again. My brother died, I got divorced (from) my wife, and my whole world basically spun around. So you know what? I'm going to take care of myself because that's what I need to take care of. Instead of just having a few shows, I want to have a whole hell of a lot of shows."

Stone Temple Pilots saw its first album in nine years debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in May. But the self-titled set quickly slid down the charts and it has sold just 130,000 copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Yesterday, Dundee guitar band The View released a free track "Sunday" on its official website. The song is a first taste of the band's forthcoming third album, which frontman Kyle Falconer promises will be "more articulate" than previous. Listen to "Sunday" from The View here.

Speaking to Scotland's Daily Record about the album which is scheduled for a spring release, Falconer said, "The new album will sound much cleaner and you'll be able to hear my vocals a lot clearer. It's more articulate."

The Scottish band is probably beat known for its single "Same Jeans." Falconer explained that the new album will be very different from 2007 debut Hats Off to the Buskers and its follow-up Which Bitch? He added, "We were proud of Which Bitch? but it wasn't well received and didn't get played much on radio. We were gutted."

Falconer revealed that his thoughts at the time were, "'We need to get back to the music rather than the craziness'."

Previous albums Hats Off to the Buskers and Which Bitch? were produced by Owen Morris, best known for his work with Oasis and The Verve, but Martin "Youth" Glover, who has made records with the Delays and the Futureheads and was founder member and bassist of UK band Killing Joke, has been chosen to produce the third album.
