In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland revealed that the group will be performing Core, its 1992 debut album, in its entirety on their upcoming U.S. fall tour.

“We’re going to play the album in its entirety. I think it’ll be really fun, because the one thing that I got tired of was sort of playing the same basic set list every night. It was like, ‘the hits.’ This way, it’s something different, and I think it will be cool,” Weiland told the magazine.

Core featured modern rock staples “Plush,” “Sex Type Thing” and “Wicked Garden” and has sold over eight million copies. It’s the best selling album in the Stone Temple Pilots catalog.

The trek will commemorate the smash album’s 20th anniversary and will feature songs Stone Temple Pilots haven’t played in years: “What comes to mind is the first song that we ever wrote with all of us in the band, when we had our first rehearsal with Dean [DeLeo]. He had this guitar riff that turned into ‘Where the River Goes.’ We haven’t played that song in a long time, so I’m looking forward to that.
