Atlantic recording group Stone Temple Pilots have announced details of their upcoming CD and CD/DVD collections, dubbed “THANK YOU.” The multi-platinum band’s first-ever anthology hits stores on November 11th. The “THANK YOU” CD features 13 of STP’s greatest songs, spanning more than a decade of hits. Among the many unforgettable favorites included are “Plush” and “Sex Type Thing” (from 1992’s debut, “CORE”), “Vasoline” and “Interstate Love Song” (from 1994’s “PURPLE”), “Lady Picture Show” and “Big Bang Baby” (from 1996’s “TINY MUSIC…SONGS FROM THE VATICAN GIFT SHOP”), “Down” and “Sour Girl” (from 1999’s “No. 4”), and “Days Of The Week” (from 2001’s “SHANGRI-LA DEE DA”). The compilation also includes a pair of special bonus tracks: the brand-new, previously unreleased “All In The Suit That You Wear” – which is headed to rock radio – along with an acoustic version of “Plush,” recorded live on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball back in 1992. “THANK YOU” will be available in two formats, as an individual 15-track CD, and as a special CD/DVD package. The 3-hour, 32-song DVD features a dozen of STP’s acclaimed music videos and a collection of brilliant live performances, including a remarkable assortment of “bootlegs” shot by friends and fans of the band. Among the highlights are never-before-seen musical meetings between STP and two of their major influences – a version of “Sweet Emotion” alongside Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, and a rendition of “Wichita Lineman” with the legendary Glen Campbell. From their arrival in 1992 with the 8x-platinum “CORE,” Stone Temple Pilots have consistently been among the forefront of modern rock ‘n’ roll artists. With each album, the California-based quartet – Scott Weiland, Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo, and Eric Kretz – has pursued their own unique musical vision, an inspired sonic approach merging metallic riffs and baroque pop melodies with a punk-fuelled energy and a gift for psychedelic experimentation. As a result, Stone Temple Pilots have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, and they rank among the top three most successful bands to emerge in the 1990s (along with Nirvana and Pearl Jam). Among their many accolades, Stone Temple Pilots received a “Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal” Grammy Award for their #1 rock smash, “Plush.” Other honors bestowed upon the band over the years include two American Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award, two Billboard Video Awards, and an MTV Video Music Award. In 2001, the band received a Grammy Award nomination in the “Best Hard Rock Performance” category for “Down” (from “No. 4”).
