Stone Temple Pilots are looking for a new lead singer, and one Davenport man is throwing his hat into the ring.

Davo Paul sent his rendition of "Wicked Garden" to STP earlier this week and is still waiting to hear back. Back in the day he used to sing in a Stone Temple Pilots cover band. We all have our fingers crossed and are wishing him the best of luck.

Davo currently plays bass and does co-vocals in Paradise Over who just released their debut single last year. Give "Always Win" a listen:

Stone Temple Pilots posted this on their site:

A year of hope, optimism, and most importantly, new music! We are immensely proud of all that we have been able to share with you over the years. Music, music, music. We very much want to continue doing that, but that’s going to take a little help from all of you.

As you know, prior to the untimely passing of our brother in arms, Scott, we had been working with the incomparable Chester Bennington. What you also likely know is that having Chester front two bands of this size and scope was too much for one man to be able to do and so regretfully we had to move onto a new chapter together. This is where you come in…

We are officially announcing that we are seeking a new vocalist to front Stone Temple Pilots. We’ve already heard from many talented people, but want to make this an opportunity for many more so we’ve set up a way for you to do just that.

If you think you have what it takes to front this band, record with this band, and tour with this band, we would dig hearing from you. No one will ever “replace” Scott, that was never the intent. The intent is for Stone Temple Pilots to continue on, to evolve, and to do what we do… make music! We look forward to seeing you.
