Their first new album in five years is set to come out at the end of August
Red Hot Chili Peppers will release their 10th studio album ‘I’m With You’ on August 29, they have now confirmed.
There had been speculation that the LP, which is the follow-up to 2006’s double album ‘Stadium Arcadium’, would be titled ‘Dr Johnny Skinz’s Disproportionately Rambunctious Polar Express Machine-head’ – a title inspired by an acid trip a friend of singer Anthony Kiedis once had, but the California quartet have clearly thought better of it.
The album, which has been produced by frequent collaborator Rick Rubin, will be preceded by a single, which is titled ‘The Adventures Of Raindance Maggie’ and will be released on July 18.
‘I’m With You’ is the band’s first album since 1995’s ‘One Hot Minute’ that will not feature guitarist John Frusciante. He quit the band in 2009 to be replaced by former touring guitarist and ex-Warpaint six stringer Josh Klinghoffer.
The band have so far confirmed live dates in Brazil, Japan and Hong Kong, but have yet to formally schedule any tour dates for either Europe or North America.
