Red Hot Chili Peppers to play for the Dalai Lama
It seems nobody, not even religious leaders, can escape the Red Hot Chili Peppers this year, as they've announced that they will play for the Dalai Lama.

The band, who have been touring non-stop for the last year and a half and have just headlined Coachella Festival in California, will play for His Holiness during his visit to Maitripa College in Portland, Oregon on May 11 as part of the Dalai Lama Environmental Summit.

According to a press release (via Consequence of Sound): "The musical element of this event is intended to be a display of joyful celebration and an inspiration to future generations to care for our planet. The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been great supporters of the Tibetan cause, of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and of the need to work to protect and preserve our environment."

Back in February, the band unveiled the latest track in the set of 18 new singles they are slowly releasing to fans via their website. The sixth of nine instalments, you can hear the eight-minute long 'In Love Dying' below. All of the tracks were written and recorded while touring their 10th studio album 'I'm With You'.
