    What if ......

    Van Halen put out a new album without announcing a new singer or releasing a single, just an album release date? How do you think that would go over?

    I would be doubly excited if I picked up the album and the voice was Sammy Hagar or Michael Anthony.

    in this day and age? nothing's a secret...it would probably be leaked to the Internet a month before, and everyone would know who it was then.

    i get the feeling that after the lead singer mess ups in recent years vh aren't gonna release any info until an album is finished and ready for release. if they said they were working with dave/sammy and then it fell through there's no way they could have a successful album after that. in 96 everyone thought dave was back, it didn't happen and vh3 was doomed before a track was even heard (although letting people hear some of the tracks didn't help matters [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img] )

    I honestly think that Van Halen aren't any closer to a new album now than they were a year ago or even 2 years ago. Who knows if we ever get something from these guys again. Fuck that SUCKS!!!!!!!!

    I don't think VH will release an album w/o the public finding out about it first. I also don't think they would even try it considering how 'well' VHIII was taken by the fans. So far, the only recording Ed has done was something for Steve Lukather's Christmas album. Plus, Ed just bought a new house so he's been a little busy lately.l

    I don't think that nowadays that would even be possible, it got out that Dave was recording songs in 2000 although it wasnt said officially by anyone till after the fact. There are no secrets anymore.

    I'm really beginning to get doubtful here, folks. Truth is, I think I'm able to hold up better than you about all this because I think I officially became a fan in '99, right after Cherone left. I'm used to new music not coming, but I still get frustrated. Some of you have been fans for a long time, and may have become accustomed to a new album every couple of years. I could just say something like "hang in there guys, when has Van Halen ever let us down?" but I'm in no position to do that, and it might be wrong anyway. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]
    If Van Halen were to release a new album just out of the blue like you said, it probably wouldn't sell as well as any other VH albums, on account of the lack of publicity. Plus, as was mentioned in an earlier post, somebody would find out and release the information on a rumors page, or possibly a message board such as this one. However, I'm not sure I would believe it, what with all this other crap I've seen before, heh.

    I can't see a new album making it all the way to the release date without songs ending up on one of those file-share things like Kazaa or something...
