Stone Temple Pilots debuted its new lineup featuring lead singer Jeff Gutt on Friday at an exclusive SiriusXM concert at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, Calif. The Grammy-winning grunge trailblazers’ set, broadcast on Howard 101, was its first since the passing of former frontman Chester Bennington in July.

Gutt, who previously appeared as a contestant on Season 3 of Fox’s competitive singing series “The X Factor,” was chosen as the band’s vocalist after a two-year-long search which began after Bennington left to focus on his other band Linkin Park in November 2015. Before Bennington, Stone Temple Pilots was fronted by frequent Stern Show guest Scott Weiland who, along with bassist Robert DeLeo, founded the band in the mid-‘80s.
