Listen to new Red Hot Chili Peppers: ‘We Turn Red’
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have released a stream of their track “We Turn Red” from 11th album The Getaway. The follow-up to 2011’s I’m With You will be released next Friday and comes after the band ditched all the songs they’d written for the project and started again.
Additional adversity: last month forced to cancel two shows after singer Anthony Kiedis was diagnosed with intestinal flu. The band are back on the road touring Europe.
Check out “We Turn Red” here:
— The Rolling Stones have announced an October 19 date at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The band’s first show in the city in three years will come on the heels of their performances at the Desert Trip Festival in Indio, California on October 7 and 14.
— Josh Homme says he’s about to start work on the next Queens Of The Stone Age album. He’s been busy with his work in the Eagles Of Death Metal and with Iggy Pop, but he plans on getting started on the follow-up to 2013’s “…Like Clockwork” this month, starting with band meeting on what the new album should sound like.
— Black Sabbath have announced the final U.S. concerts of their farewell tour, the last of which comes November 12th in San Antonio… will Ozzy whizz on the Alamo for old-times sake?
