This weekend Bennington surprised attendees at the KROQ Weenie Roast in Los Angeles with a performance.

According to NME, Bennington and the Stone Temple Pilots played a new song, “Out of Time,” along with older tracks “Sex Type Thing” and “Vasoline.”

“I’ve loved STP since I was 13 years old, and they’ve had a huge influence on me,” Bennington said in a statement.

“When the opportunity came up to do something creative with them, I jumped at the chance. The guys in Linkin Park have been incredibly supportive of me undertaking this project while I’ve continued to work on new music with LP,” the new frontman stated emphasizing his commitment to Linkin Park.

“Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time,” Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo said.

“We know Linkin Park will always be his priority, but we thought it would be cool to try something together. We managed to find the time to record a song and we’re all really happy with the result,” DeLeo added.
