Stone Temple Pilots Fought Record Label Over Album

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS endured a bitter battle with bosses at their record label over their latest album after the rockers insisted on producing their new music themselves.
The band returned to the charts in May (10) with its self-titled sixth release, but guitarist Dean DeLeo admits they struggled to get the recording sessions underway because of a dispute with their Atlantic Records label.
DeLeo reveals he wanted to produce the album with his brother and bandmate Robert, but label executives were adamant a high-profile producer should take charge of the record.
And the rocker admits the band refused to record unless it got its own way.
He tells Consequenceofsound.net, "Our label refused to let us produce it. (They said) 'We want a big-name producer.' You know what we told them? F**k off."
And DeLeo admits he can't wait to end the band's problematic relationship with Atlantic after one more album, following a turbulent few years which saw the band embroiled in a legal battle with their bosses in 2008 over their contract.
He adds, "(It's) their loss. They have us for one more record. I think it's only because we managed to sell a lot of records that we've had a pretty good relationship with them."
