Scott Weiland isn’t letting a bad case of mistaken identity get him down. Five months after the former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman was falsely accused of theft and possession of methamphetamine, Weiland has announced his solo return with his next album, Blaster.

The album, which comes out March 31, is his first solo studio full-length since 2008’s “Happy” in Galoshes—if you’re not counting his 2011 Christmas-themed album, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year. Sonically though, it should be closer to Weiland’s work in Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver.

“The album has its own distinctive sound,” Weiland said in a press statement, “but it also can entice those Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver fans who have stuck by me. Over the years, I’ve gone back and forth between art records and being in a band. This is a hybrid. What we’ve come up with is really heavy, slinky and sexy. There’s a lot of fuzz. The best way to describe it is ‘furry.’ I knew I wanted to make a rock record. It all just came together.”

Weiland announced the new album and a tour to go along with it in a two-minute video. The tour will kick off Feb. 22 in Scottsdale, Ariz.,  and conclude March 14 in Boston.
