First, RHCP provided us with an early Christmas miracle when they announced John Frusciante rejoining the group.
Now, drummer Chad Smith has confirmed during an interview with Rolling Stone, that there is indeed a new album on the way and holy shit is this a good way to start a new decade?
Smith, who was speaking to RS about an upcoming exhibition of his visual art, spoke about RHCP super briefly saying, “I was given strict orders for this interview: ‘DON’T TALK ABOUT THE BAND. But, yes, John is back in the band, and everyone knows that. We’re psyched. The festivals are the only shows booked. For now, we’ll mostly be concentrating on new songs and writing a new record. We’re all real excited to make new music.”
In the meantime, listen to Flea talking about how much he loves John Frusciante and Anthony Kiedis and try not to cry.
