The sons of late Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland and Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo have reunited in a new band.

Noah Weiland and Tye Trujillo, who used to play together in the band called Suspect208 alongside Slash‘s son, London Hudson, have now started a new band called Blu Weekend.

The group made their live debut over the weekend in Los Angeles, where they were interviewed by The Blairing Out with Eric Blair Show.

“[Blu Weekend is] something completely new and groundbreaking,” Weiland said.

Suspect208 released two songs in 2020 before announcing earlier this year that Weiland was no longer in the band due to alleged drug use. They continued on with a new vocalist before revealing in May that Suspect208 had broken up entirely.

Also in the interview, Trujillo said he was open to returning to play bass in Korn in place of Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, who announced in June that he’s taking time away from the band to deal with “personal issues.” Trujillo previously filled in for Fieldy during a 2017 South American tour, when he was only 12.

“If they’re interested, then I’m obviously more than down to go play with them,” Trujillo said.
