iheart-launch-the-getaway-update

iHeart Radio have posted an update about ‘The Getaway’ launch party concert that was recorded in front of an audience on May 26th.

Venturing through their lengthy catalogue, the RHCP rocked the 10-song set with hits like “Snow,” “Otherside” and “By The Way” after kicking off the 90-minute event with their 2003 smash “Can’t Stop.” Still, this was promotion for The Getaway, so they made sure to preview plenty of cuts from the new album, which is due June 17 via. Warner Bros. Records, including lead single “Dark Necessities,” “Sick Love,” the energetic “This Ticonderoga” and second single “Go Robot.”

“I feel like all of the weirdness that we went through as a band and as individuals led to what our record is,” lead singer Anthony revealed during a Q&A portion of the show. “Whether it was Flea shattering his elbow or not being able to find a producer or writing songs that didn’t end up getting used or all these weird emotional and physical occurrences, it all worked out for us. In the end, I’m glad that all that difficult stuff happened because we like what we got.

The article also gives details about tuning into the launch party when it’s broadcast on the album release date, June 17th:

iHeartRadio Album Release Party on AT&T LIVE on June 17 at 9 p.m. ET on iHeartRadio.com/watchATT. Also, if you’re a DIRECTV subscriber, you can also watch the show on the AUDIENCE Network, DIRECTV Ch 239 or U-Verse Ch 1114.

New Interview from Australian Channel

For those who didn’t catch the interview, it’s now on YouTube:

(I will try to add a transcript but it might be in a couple of days; it’s a national holiday weekend here and I’m spending time with my family and making the most of the fact it’s actually sunny here to sort out the garden).

English Newspaper the Daily Mail is running an article on this- basically says RHCP will be performing on the show and has a couple of photographs of the band in the car with James Corden. Anthony Kiedis sat in the front with the rest of the band in the rear.

Many thanks to everyone who let me know about this! I wasn’t online yesterday.

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!!! :)
