Scott Stapp posted a teaser video on his page last week saying their would be big news coming on October 14. Well, the date is here, and it appears Stapp is back for good.
After nearly a year of recovery from a bout with depression and psychosis brought out from bi-polar disorder, Stapp is ready to start touring in 2015 and 2016. In the video, he announced the Proof of Life World Tour. The tour will begin December 12 in South Africa. From there, he will head to the U.S. on January 15 through February 10, with more dates coming soon.
Proof of Life was Stapp's last solo record, which served to be a strong comeback that went well with his book "Sinner's Creed."
Watch the video below:
Last year Creed frontman and successful solo artist Scott Stapp had a very public and intense meltdown where he made threats to the President, accused people of stealing millions from him, and lived in his truck. Now, it has come out that this behavior was brought upon by a bad episode of bi-polar disorder that was fueled by drugs.
Stapp and his wife Jaclyn gave an exclusive interview to People, where he spoke of the entire ordeal.
“It’s not a curse, it’s actually been a gift in my life because it’s definitely impacted everything I’ve ever done in my life,” he shared with People.
He continued, “Bottom line I was out of my mind at that point of time…I was in the middle of what they call a drug induced manic psychosis. I had a psychotic break.”
Stapp compared it to being completely drunk or on “crazy drugs.”
