Red Hot Chili Peppers Expect New Music Out In September


In the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone, dated April 24, Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer is interviewed by Rob Tannenbaum, according to a scan of the magazine from RHCP fansite The feature touches on the band’s upcoming work:

We’ve got some songs written already, some of which will definitely be on the [new] album. The amazing thing about the band is that we always keep evolving, but what we’ve been really keen on is taking our best elements and keep them rolling forwards. It’s looking like we’ll have something out around September time. I’m really looking forward to sharing new music with the world.

One should recall Stadium Arcadium being pushed back a few times and I’m With You being slated for several different tentative release months before placing bets that any songs – let alone new album – will come out in September, but it’s still an optimistic sign that things are moving forward with the rock-funk masters.

The full interview also touches on potential new work with Klinghoffer and former RHCP guitarist John Frusciante, but the quote provides no potential time table, nor guarantees the two will collaborate again. Read the full interview here.

It also comes fresh off the much less exciting news that Flea is writing a book where he talks about what happens in Anthony Kiedis’ book.

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you've ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
