    Default New Van Halen Album "IFFY"

    According to todays edition of USA TODAY Van Halen's long awaited album is not ready for release. They list a slew of albums and their upcoming release dates including Chicken Foot on Sept. 27th but no release date for any Van Halen new music. The list includes new music from various artists thru November 22nd. Additionally later in the section there is a follow up that lists:
    "Albums a long time coming" there is a statement that says:
    "Also Iffy is a fall return by a Van Halen lineup with David Lee Roth. The reunited group has recorded a new album, its first in 27 years,with producer John Shanks. The band's last studio album: Van Halen III with singer Gary Cherone."
    Now to be clear I'm not saying I believe everything I read in USA TODAY.
    I just thought it was marginally newsworthy with all the hubbub going on here lately regarding new material.
    Having said that I have no doubt the new music will be out tomorrow.

    Later

    I'm sure USA Today wasn't using anything other than the internet and forums like this to come to that conclusion...

    When I saw the thread title, I figured it was another rumor thread about the album title...

    No, they don't have to work that hard. If an artist has a new album coming out, the record company and the agency make sure the major news outlets know about it. The reporter probably just checks her email.







    Don't read this.

    It'll come I'm sure. My guess is they are just still working out the whole distribution process.
    This will be VH's real first in the modern era of online downloadable MP3, and specific mega retailer only distribution.
    I imagine there's still lots of convincing going on to the less interweb saavy members of the band....but I'm sure Al will bring Ed up to speed.

    It's the mixing, man. The mixing.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    I have been waiting for the new disc, but it has been so long. We are approaching Chinnesse Democracy time frame comparisons. My fear is we are going to get the disc, pop it in and say at the end, "wow this is what we waited so long for". By fucking up so much, it's almost like they doomed themselves no matter what. I hope not, but realistically, if the album is decent to ok, I'd have to try and be happy with that. Who writes there greatest stuff in their late 50's anyhow.

    It would have to be pretty damn bad not to release an entire album that was produced and by all accounts, mixed. If what I just said is true then I believe it will be released.

    Do you think Sammy called up Mike when he read the USA Today article to share a good laugh?

    Hopefully, he'll be interviewed and asked about it.

    I doubt very much that Ed, Al and Dave most likely have bitched, whined, moaned and groaned with compromises for the last 8 months just to shelve the album. Shanks probably would kill them after all the shit he had to go through dealing with their personalities.
