New Red Hot Chili Peppers Album Underway + Upcoming Tour?
It’s been a while since we’ve heard any news from Team Chili Peppers, but we’re assuming it’s just because they’re so hard at work on a new record. It’s been five years since the band has released new material, but according to a recent interview with Anthony Kieids the band is “in the home stretch” or finishing the new tunes. As we previously reported, they’re in the studio working with Danger Mouse at the helm of producer. Is a summer tour announcement in the works? Stay tuned!
Good news for fans awaiting a new Red Hot Chili Peppers album: it’s coming–soon. We promise. The band recently played a benefit show for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, and according to an interview Anthony Keidis gave to Rolling Stone, not playing the new tunes is torture.
“The torture about doing this [show] is that we’ve been writing new music for the last year, and we’ve written some songs that I feel are as good as any songs we’ve ever written. We’re just dying to play the new songs — but we can’t, because every single human has a recording device on them at all times.”
With Danger Mouse at the production helm, you can expect the classic RHCP sound, with some stripped down elements as well. Stay tuned to TBA for more updates on the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album as they unfold.
It’s been almost four years since the Red Hot Chili Peppers have released an album, and almost a year since they’ve toured. (Which, compared to some artists isn’t that long, but c’mon!) Luckily, at least one of those things are about to change. According to a now-deleted Tweet by bassist Flea, the boys have been spending time in the studio with Brian Burton, aka Danger Mouse, who is lending his production efforts to the new RHCP album.
With news of Danger Mouse at the helm, plus confirmation from drummer Chad Smith that “we will have an album out next year ,” it seems all is going according to plan for the 32-year-old band. So can we expect a 2015 Red Hot Chili Peppers tour? Well, if you were lucky enough to be at Sean Penn’s Haitian Relief fundraiser in early January, you got to witness a surprise 30-minute, six-song set. Other than that there’s no current tour plans on the roster…as far as we know. With most summer festival lineups already announced, one can only hope for a last-minute Chili Peppers addition. Lollapalooza, anyone?
Be sure to stay tuned to TBA for the most up-to-date info on the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album and tour!
