Well, here we go! For you Central Illinois Red Hot Chili Peppers fanatics, this is some exciting news. The Red Hots have announced that they will be unleashing yet another new album this year, and not just a new album, a DOUBLE ALBUM of new material! The album is titled ‘Return Of The Dream Canteen’, and it’s set for a October 14th release! The band has hit an explosion of creativity, with guitarist John Frusciante back in the fold, the band hit the studio with a vengeance, and not only recorded their latest album, ‘Unlimited Love’, which has been a huge hit this year, they also recorded so many songs that they were inspired to craft yet another double album! Rick Rubin is at the helm for this one as well. The band had the following announcement:
We went in search of ourselves as the band that we have somehow always been. Just for the fun of it we jammed and learned some old songs. Before long we started the mysterious process of building new songs. A beautiful bit of chemistry meddling that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way. Once we found that slip stream of sound and vision, we just kept mining. With time turned into an elastic waist band of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It felt like a dream. When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with. Well we figured it out. 2 double albums released back to back. The second of which is easily as meaningful as the first or should that be reversed. ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’ is everything we are and ever dreamed of being. It’s packed. Made with the blood of our hearts, yours truly, the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
