New Scott Weiland Band Art of Anarchy Announces Debut Album

Credit: Catherine Asanov2015 is shaping up to be quite the year for Scott Weiland. In addition to the release of his debut album with his backing band, The Wildabouts, the former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman will be the vocalist for Art of Anarchy. Weiland will be joined in Art of Anarchy by Disturbed bassist John Moyer and Guns n' Roses guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal. The band was created by Jon and Vince Votta, who have been friends with Bumblefoot for more than 15 years.

Art of Anarchy debut album, which is due this spring, will feature "over-the-top songs that break rock music boundaries with an all-or-nothing attitude, star power and bring-down-the-house performances," a press release promises. For a preview of said over-the-top songs, you can check out the Art of Anarchy album teaser on YouTube.

Art of Anarchy will be Weiland's second collaboration with a GNR vet, as Velvet Revolver counted Slash, Duff McKagen and Matt Sorum as members. That experiment didn't end well for Weiland, as he left the band in 2008.

Meanwhile, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts' debut album, Blaster, will be released on March 31. Weiland will be touring North America with the band in support of the new record starting in February, and this Friday, January 23, he will be performing at the Sundance ASCAP Music Café during the Sundance Film Festival.
