    Default Ed not happy with Dave's vocals?Melodicrock.com

    Melodicrock.com
    August 30.2011

    JUST WHERE IS VAN HALEN'S NEW ALBUM AND WHEN WILL ANY PRESS COMMENCE?:

    Just where is the Van Halen album at and when might fans get any indication that the new record is finally coming? That's the question constantly being asked by the band's frustrated fanbase. Time is running out for a 2011 release announcement, given that I personally am already working on November releases with some labels, with most locking in their plans for the last quarter already.
    When one looks at the efforts underway in the Chickenfoot camp, it's easy to see who has the better grasp of media in the 21st century. Sammy Hagar and co are already all over Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and their own websites with video teasers, personal appearances and interviews. But still nothing from Van Halen, who commenced recording of the album back in 2010 with producer Ross Hogarth, apart from David Lee Roth telling us to coming to "Get Ready" (hopefully not to get ready for more disappearing tour dates, as happened in Australia).

    I don't have much news today, but the latest from one of my sources suggests the continued "mixing" process, which is reported to have been going on for some time now, could involve additional vocals being recorded by David Lee Roth for inclusion on the album. The mixing process often includes the addition of extra parts and replacement of others. My source stated: "As for the album being shelved goes, it's not true. However, I will say that the delay lies within the vocals. That seems to be the main roadblock. Eddie is just not satisfied with the vocals that have been recorded and re-recorded which has caused a lot of frustration with both the Van Halen and Roth Camps alike. It's also my understanding that Shanks involvement ended up being very minimal compared to what the press made it out to be."
    While this is just one source and won't ever be commented on by anyone officially...it does make sense, in explaining why at the start of September 2011 we still haven't heard one note of the new music.

    I've heard further comments about US tour dates for the first 3 months of 2012, so it seems planning for the tour remains on track. There is a rumored January date for Van Halen in Indonesia, but that is anything but confirmed at this stage. Stay tuned as always...

    Default VH

    Hope this does not tie in with what Eddie Trunk tweeted.


    @ What was the VH info you had the other day after you played Unchained?



    @EddieTrunk That there is no real info and there is great uncertainty if and when to actually put it out

    Vocal trouble? I beleive half of the signature vocal sound of VH is playing bass for Chickenfoot. Of course they'd never admit Mike's contributions could address some of the issues they are facing, especially with chorus structures.

    If I recall correctly, Eddie said that Dave had to work really hard on the vocals back in '96, saying that Dave was a real trooper to finally get the published results. Well, what was he expecting 15 years later?!

    Although, when VH toured with Roth, I was wondering how his vocals would sound, and really didn't expect much. But I thought Dave's voice was fine, as per his standards. Whatever special effects they used worked just fine.

    And all this time during this delay I thought Eddie was fucking the music up by recording layers of guitars, which, by the way, he still could be doing.

    yeah I remember hearing that too. I hope that if this is the case and its true that Dave and Ed hang in there and make it work and dont get frustrated to the point where they let it go. I hope they stick with it and make it work.

    You know, if it's true, the only one with with something to lose would be Dave. The rest of the band could easily say, "See?? We told you." Maybe Ed really wants it to work. Sigh.
    We all know Dave's voice will be rough, just put some shellac on it, and let the damn thing out!!!

    I go with 47's take on it.

    Now I think you see why we are not hearing anything from the band. If they can't even agree on vocals 8 months after the process, then what good is it to put info on a website or leak music? I mean for the short term it is cool for us cause we get to hear some shit. However the blowback if they announce an album and fail to deliver would be a Katrina around here.

    I don't like that they are farting around this long just like everybody else but until we hear something from the band, there is no album. They have not promised us anything outside of Getting Ready or Memorial day wishes. It's much easier to expect nothing from this band. Yes its a shame but it is what it is.

    Maybe Ed should get that DLR soundalike from Steel Panther?
