RHCP Tour 2016: iHeart Radio ‘The Getaway’ Launch Party

Today/yesterday (time zones!) the Red Hot Chili Peppers played a concert for iHeart Radio to a crowd of 200 fans who had won tickets through competitions for the show. The concert was recorded and will be broadcast on June 17th which is the launch date for RHCP’s new album ”The Getaway.’

New songs from ‘The Getaway’ were played at the concert and as a result, security at the concert was tight with guests searched and no recording devices were allowed in. Dark Necessities got its second public live performance (the first being at last weekend’s Rock On The Range festival in Ohio) and Sick Love, This Ticonderoga and Go Robot were played for the first time.

Can’t Stop

Sick Love

Universally Speaking

This Ticonderoga

Go Robot

Soul To Squeeze

By The Way

Other Information:
They discussed that Sick Love is the song that features Elton John (I’m in England, can I name him? Or is it only his partner we can’t discuss without the threat of law suits?!) and apparently it’s “really slow and mellow”. It was also played twice to allow for an edit as there were mistakes made while playing it the first time.

 Many thanks to Angra who was there!!!!

Another RHCP Song: The Getaway Released!

‘The Getaway’ which is the title track of the new album by the Red Hot Chili Peppers has just been released on the official RHCP sites! The download of the song “The Getaway” will be available at 12:01am local on May 27th.

“The Getaway”

That’s right you’re right
We will do our thing tonight alright
Take me through the future
It’s time you’re fine
Just another color coded crime
Incision and a suture
You told my friend
We would get it on no matter when
A supercavitation
Let’s go you show
Me something no one will ever know
A love hallucination

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
A lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

You don’t have to keep it if it’s mine
(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)
Another place maybe another time
(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

Complete repeat
Sitting in your car and on your street
Lost in California
Let’s steal this wheel
Take a spin to find out how we feel
Just around the corner
Slow down for sound
Turn it up and no we can’t be found
The body that we transcend
Asleep, you weep
Find out that the trick is never cheap
A melancholy girlfriend

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
A lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

You don’t have to keep it if it’s mine
(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)
Another place maybe another time
(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

That’s right you’re right
We will do our thing tonight, alright
Drive the constellation
It’s time you’re fine
Just another color coded crime
The song is fascination

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
The lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

A May December might not be so smart
(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)
Arrivals that we wish would not depart
(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

Don’t be late cause you’re my savior
Make it great whatever stays
Golden gate my rearranger
Hold my name inside your rays

iHeart Radio Concert

Tonight IS the night for the iHeart Radio show Red Hot Chili Peppers’ launch party concert for ‘The Getaway’ which will be recorded for broadcast on the album release date (17th June)!

I don’t expect much news to come out from the actual concert because there is a really strict entry policy and no phones or cameras are being allowed into the venue – which also means very little in terms of photos or videos unless the band/radio station release something :( But hopefully we will find out something about the evening afterwards!
This is dedicated to everyone going tonight! I’m totally envious (and I think everyone else is too!) but I hope you have an amazing time! You are so lucky! Enjoy!!! :)

Josh Klinghoffer Interview

josh-klinghoffer-rock-on-the-range-ohio-may-2016-interview

Josh was interviewed backstage at Rock On The Range. I’ve added a transcript- I haven’t typed it all out because a lot of it was unclear as Josh’s voice is really muffled at times and the presenters talked over him a lot.

 

Transcript:
Presenters talking about shaving legs and Josh is joining in but very unclear…Then they finally seem to start the interview and talk about Josh playing with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
What was it like when you did get that phone call [about being in RHCP]?
Josh Klinghoffer: It was shocking and exciting and kind of a beautiful moment. I was at a baseball game [talks about the teams]… it was July when Flea called me and we didn’t actually get a chance to play together until October.
So Flea made the call?
Josh Klinghoffer: Yes, Flea made the call.

Talking about Gnarls Barkley and Danger Mouse, etc. Presenter says RHCP have played some weird shows leading up to this e.g. half shows and then New Orleans and asks about what they are going to play now.
Can you give anything away? Are you going to step it up for Rock on the Range? Not that you need to. But you know what I’m saying.
Josh Klinghoffer: Yeah, it is a fairly rockin’ set. When we were invited to come here someone reminded us it was a very rock set … Are you sure you guys want to do this?

One of the presenters asks if her favourite song is on the set list. Josh says he’s seen the set list once and that it wasn’t included for this show although they have started playing it live. But he will ask about it. Presenter jokes she will shave his legs if he doesn’t. And that she now knows his name (in the starting bit she asked what he was called!).

They then talk about the new record being out on the 17th June and that there are 13 songs on the record and the presenter says the Chili Peppers are generous with their albums.
Josh Klinghoffer: Are you a fan of longer albums? Coz there’s always an argument, not an argument but a disagreement and there was with the last album and there was with this album about how many songs to release. It was 15 to start off with and then we took two off it. Brian [Danger Mouse] …we were aiming for 10 or 11 songs as we like shorter albums… so we settled on 13. With 13 we had to make a double vinyl rather than fitting it onto one. So there are pluses and minuses in that it kinda breaks up the whole album but I don’t know how people listen and if they listen to a whole album.

Presenter talks about how he likes to listen to records in order from beginning to end and how he got a record player for his birthday and which vinyls (includes Mother’s Milk). And then about what Brian/Danger Mouse is doing. Then asks what Josh is listening to.
Josh Klinghoffer: I’m not sure. It’s been a long time since I bought a new record. I listen to older stuff, I listen to weird African records and … [gets talked over]

Presenters talk about New Orleans style music (Zydeco] and then mention Ethiopian music.
Josh Klinghoffer: Well, Flea and I went to Ethiopia in 2010. And Flea told Anthony about getting lost and not being able to find all of us which was shocking because we turned around and he was gone. And yeah, I love Ethiopian music. I loved it over there. We’re trying to figure out how to get over there and play.

Ends with them joking about playing Aeroplane and that ‘Joshy’ hates her if it’s not played.

RHCP Album Launch Party Postponed

I don’t think this will be a massive surprise to anyone but the launch party scheduled for RHCP’s ‘The Getaway’ on Tuesday has been postponed due to Anthony Kiedis’ illness and hospitalization. It has also been announced that Anthony is suffering from intestinal flu::
