‘I’m With You’ is the band’s first album since their 2006 double LP ‘Stadium Arcadium’, and is also the band’s first with former Warpaint man Josh Klinghoffer acting as guitar player. He replaced longtime bandmember John Frusciante, who quit the band for a second time in 2009.

The band recently announced a UK and Ireland arena tour for November, which will take in nine shows, including two nights at London‘s O2 Arena.
