ALL NEW STUDIO ALBUM The return of the dream canteen Released October 14 Warner Records
LOS ANGELES, September 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Offering a collective salute and eloquent tribute to one of the greatest of all time, Hot red peppers sharing a heartfelt new song titled “edi” today. To listen “Eddie” HERE. The track unfolds like an emotionally charged anthem anchored by a powerful bass, soulful beat, cathartic guitar and delicate vocal melody with an encore to celebrate the icon’s enduring spirit.
Re “Eddie,“Hot red peppers leader Anthony Kiedis said, “Sometimes we don’t realize how deeply touched and connected we are to artists until the day they die. Eddie Van Halen was one of a kind. The day after his death, Flea entered rehearsal with an emotional bass line. John, Chad and I started playing and pretty soon with all of our hearts, a song in his honor came through effortlessly. It felt good to be sad and to care so much about a person who had given so much to our lives. Although the song isn’t about Eddie by name, it is about his early days on the Sunset Strip and the rock n roll tapestry that Van Halen painted in our minds. At the end, our song asks that you don’t remember Eddie for his death but for living his wildest dream.”
“edi”sets the stage for the release of the band’s second album in 2022 and thirteenth full album, The return of the dream canteenon October 14e Going through Warner Records. Pre-order/Pre-save The return of the dream canteen HERE.
Last month, the group unveiled the first single “Tip my tongue“ and right at the door, rolling stone applauded him as “a sexually suggestive romp that conjures up all the quintessential quirks of California The vast catalog of the funk-rock outfit,“ and SHOCK summarized best as “a Hot red peppers master class.” Billboard attested, “The muscular funk-rock track recalls peppers of old, with the leader Anthony Kiedis play with lyrical double meaning.“
The Hot red peppers recently won the prestigious Global Icon Award and delivered a stunning performance at the MTV VMAs. The band just wrapped up their sold-out world tour and will headline the Austin City Limits Music Festival on October 9 and 16″ Austin, Texas. The stadium tour continues in January 2023 on the other side New Zealand and Australia.
The return of the dream canteen will land just six months after the platinum sales chart Unlimited love. The latter emerged as the group’s second No. 1 arc on the Billboard Top 200 and stands out as the biggest rock album of the year. Once again, they’ve joined forces with a longtime producer and creative confidant. Rick Rubin for this sprawling LP.
This is shaping up to be the band’s most prolific, poetic and powerful season to date.
We went in search of ourselves as the band we’ve always been. Just for fun, we jammed and learned some old songs. Soon after, we started the mysterious process of creating new songs. A nice chemical interference that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way. Once we found that flow of sound and vision, we kept mining. With time transformed into an elastic waistband of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It was like a dream. In the end, our sluggish love for each other and the magic of the music had given us more songs than we knew what to do with. Well, we got it. 2 double albums released in quick succession. The second is easily as significant as the first or should it be reversed. “Return of the Dream Canteen” is everything we are and have always dreamed of being. It’s packed. Made with the blood of our hearts, your servant, the Hot red peppers.
