The new Red Hot Chili Peppers album has been listed in Kerrang! magazines top 50 expected albums of the new year. Nothing new is said in the article (most of the comments are based upon a recently released video interview with RHCP drummer, Chad Smith) and they say that festival dates are rumoured- there is no mention of Rock in Rio or the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan having been confirmed. Interesting photo editing btw; remember when Rolling Stone also cut off John Frusciante from a photo…?!
Red Hot Chili Peppers
FOLLOWING THE double album blow-out if 2006’s Stadium Arcadium, the Red Hot Chili Peppers lost their guitarist John Frusciante, who decided to leave the band for the umpteenth time in his career. His replacement, Josh Klinghoffer, has been described by the band’s drummer Chad Smith as a “real creative force” and the quartet have been in the studio with producer Rick Rubin since last July, where they are in the process of whittling down 20 songs into an album for a spring release. “We always cut a lot of songs and see which ones rise and which ones fall,” explains Chad. “But the new one won’t be a double album like Stadium Arcadium. I can tell you that.” Festival dates are rumoured to be booked for the summer, too.
