Weathered was the last Creed album to be released until Full Circle came out in October 2009, with Creed disbanding in June 2004. It is the only Creed album not to include bassist Brian Marshall, who departed from the band in August 2000. Guitarist Mark Tremonti played bass guitar on the album in his absence. The album received mixed reviews from critics.


On July 20, 2001, Scott Stapp, Mark Tremonti, and Scott Phillips entered J. Stanley Productions Inc., a private residence/recording studio in Ocoee, Florida to begin the process of recording the album.[9]
