RUMOR: VAN HALEN HAS A NEW ALBUM READY TO RELEASE NEXT YEAR

11/7/2012

Does Van Halen have a new album prepped and ready to go for 2013? Melodicrock.com reported a rumor that when the band recorded this year's A Different Kind Of Truth album they actually recorded enough material for its followup. The rumored album could feasibly see release during the first quarter of next year as a tie-in for the next leg in Van Halen's tour.

 

Van Halen has been sidelined following Eddie Van Halen's intestinal surgery in September. The band came off the tour midway through their summer tour and is expected back on the road sometime in 2013.

JUST OUR OPINION

  • Hey -- there are several examples of band's recording two albums at once and releasing one at a time -- most notably the Steve Miller Band's Fly Like An Eagle and Book Of Dreams, and John Lennon & Yoko Ono's Double Fantasy and Milk And Honey.
  • Seeing as how A Different Kind Of Truth mainly featured old, unfinished/unreleased early VH tracks -- it worked. Hopefully the new album will also feature unreleased nuggets, rather than lame new creations that were left on the cutting room floor for the first album.
