Stone Temple Pilots announce 30th anniversary ‘Core’ vinyl reissue


Stone Temple Pilots have announced a vinyl reissue of the band’s 1992 debut album, Core, in honor of its 30th anniversary.

The four-LP package is due out September 23, ahead of the exact Core anniversary on September 29. Along with the original album, the reissue includes a collection of bonus demos, as well as live recordings from a July 1993 concert.

Neither the demos nor the live tracks have previously been available on vinyl.

Core introduced the world to STP and frontman Scott Weiland with singles including “Plush,” “Creep” and “Sex Type Thing.” The album’s been certified eight-times Platinum by the RIAA and was previously reissued in 2017 to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

STP followed Core with the equally successful Purple and released three more albums before breaking up in 2003. They reunited in 2008 before Weiland was fired in 2013 and replaced by Linkin Park‘s Chester Bennington. Weiland died in 2015, and Bennington passed in 2017.

The current singer in STP is Jeff Gut, who has released two albums with the band.
