Default Reunites, Joins STP On Tour


Members of Canadian rock band Default announced Tuesday they are reuniting – and going on tour with Stone Temple Pilots and Seether.

Discovered by Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, the group released four albums between 2001 and 2010 and topped the charts with the single “Wasting My Time.”

Dallas Smith, Jeremy Hora, Dave Benedict, and Danny Craig announced in 2013 that they were going their separate ways.

Smith, of course, became a wildly successful country artist. In a 2016 interview with, Smith played down the odds of a Default reunion.

“Maybe one or two songs for a greatest hits thing or some package, I don't know,” he said. “I hate to say that we’ll never play a show together again.

"I think there will be an opportunity at some point down the road where that makes sense to do. But right now every single one of us in that band is busy. We all have kids. It’s hard just to even get a lunch together let alone organize a show.”

In the same interview, Smith said he blasts music from bands like Stone Temple Pilots on his tour bus.
