Red Hot Chili Peppers to do James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’

Band will appear on 'The Late Late Show' next Monday (June 13)

Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced that they will appear on James Corden‘s popular ‘Carpool Karaoke’ segment, which sees acts sing songs in a car while the TV host drives them around.

‘The Getaway’, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ first record since 2011’s ‘I’m With You’, will be released later this month (June 17), produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Radiohead‘s Nigel Godrich.

Ahead of its release, the band have confirmed that they will be the guests on Corden’s Late Late Show in the US next Monday (June 13). The news broke on Instagram earlier today (see below).

The band’s frontman Anthony Kiedis recently updated fans about his health after being rushed to hospital with intestinal flu.

Meanwhile, bassist Flea has bemoaned the state of modern rock music, saying that the genre is dead.

Flea previously said that the band were “heading into a new era” as they finished work on the LP.

“We’re near the end of it,” Flea told Q. “Danger Mouse is producing this time, instead of Rick Rubin. Were heading into a new era and we’re really excited.”

Asked how the album was sounding, he added: “It’s new and different but without sacrificing the good bits of us. There are some songs we already had, and some new ones too. I can’t wait to play it live.”

Meanwhile, the band have a series of tour dates and festival appearances booked for the summer. Among those dates is a headline slot at Reading and Leeds Festival 2016.
