Stone Temple Pilots’ fifth studio album and final before their first breakup was released 20 years ago. Shangri-La Dee Da would also be the bands’ final work with renowned producer Brendan O’Brien. Released on June 19, 2001, it would go on to be certified as gold with sales of over 500,000 copies.
The lead single ‘Days of the Week’ had a solid run at radio. However, the song was rarely heard as part of their live set. ‘Hollywood Bitch’ was the follow up and while it didn’t get as much airplay, found it’s way into the bands live performances with much greater frequency.
The Break-up & Reunion
Two short years after the release of Shangri-La Dee Da the band went their separate ways. It wasn’t until 2008 the band would reunite and release any new material. The result was a self titled album and shows all over the world.
The honeymoon didn’t last however and Weiland split with the band in 2011. He’d go on to pass away in December of 2015 as a result of an accidental overdose.
