The 60 Most Exciting Albums of 2011


Much has changed since the Chilis’ bloated 2006 double-album ‘Stadium Arcadium’, most notably John Frusciante walking out to be replaced by session player Josh Klinghoffer. Now holed up with Rick Rubin, the band are shooting for a pre-summer release for album 10, with 20 songs in contention. Details are scant, but bassist Flea is said to have traded in slap bass for African rhythms after he and Klinghoffer took a trip around the continent. “The new one won’t be a double like ‘Stadium Arcadium’, I can tell you that,” drummer Chad Smith promisingly declared recently.

Released: May /June

About Squitherwitch

I've been a RHCP fan ever since I heard Under The Bridge way back in the mists of time. I brought BSSM and then their other albums but RHCP were just another band I listened to (I was a massive GNR fan at the time) but that changed once I heard Californication! I've been involved with the online RHCP scene since 2006, getting more heavily involved as time passed, and eventually the time was right to set up my own website dedicated to the band and thus, TheChiliSource was born. Since then I've also set up along with various Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr pages connected to my websites and RHCP.
