Current Wildabouts frontman and former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver member Scott Weiland has teamed up with Google Play architect Tim Quirk and Freeform Development, Inc. to release a brand new application and content delivery system across multiple mobile operating systems, available now for download.
Simply titled “Scott Weiland”, the app currently features free one time listens of the first seven tracks of 2015’s Blaster with a link to purchase; alternatively, several “offers” to receive a free digital download of the record include subscribing to Rhapsody or taking advantage of promotional offers from partners such as Subway and DirecTV. A previously unreleased bonus track entitled “Back to the City” is unlocked by sharing the app via Facebook.
The app opens with a note from Weiland explaining his intent for the new app:
Check out my new record with The Wildabouts, “BLASTER”, along with a brand new bonus track “Back To The City”.
You can crank most of these tracks up once a day for free. But if you just gotta have it for keeps, and who doesn’t, just TAP the OFFER bar!
Be on the lookout for more + more +more, offers and free stuff; big thanks to all of my fans. -Scott Weiland
At the end of the “notes” section of the app, offering a summary of Weiland’s career, Weiland left a dedication to former Wildabouts guitarist Jeremy Brown, who tragically passed away on the eve of Blaster’s release at the age of 34:
Jeremy Brown, you are in my thoughts, prayers, and dreams, God speed, love and peace brother; we will meet again.

We’ll perform the hits for the Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver fans. I made BLASTER for them, but it is fresh; we’ve made an album that can resonate, and attract a whole new group of fans. It’s a rebirth,” stated Weiland.
The official tour will be preceded by and exclusive engagement on October 5th at The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, California.
