Recent rumors suggest that Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland will be involved with the upcoming new album from Shihad in a co-producing capacity. The effort, produced by Josh Abraham (Staind, Orgy), is expected out in the spring / summer through The Label. However, it will be issued under a different name as the band have decided to change their moniker due to its similarities with the word "jihad". A new name is expected to be announced shortly.
