After years of anticipation, we now have a confirmed release date for the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album after Flea broke the news via his Twitter account.
“It gives me profound pleasure deep in the fiber of my being to announce the August 30 release date of the new red hot chili peppers’s record,” the bassist announced, later tweeting “the new red hot chili peppers record is called……….. I’m With You.”
The full release will be preceded by the single “The Adventures of Raindance Maggie,” due out July 18.
I’m With You will be the band’s first effort since 2006’s Stadium Arcadium, and the first since guitarist John Frusciante was replaced with Josh Klinghoffer.
Besides his signature bass style, Flea has been contributing a lot of piano to the album after studying music theory during the group’s downtime.
